The show is recorded inside a large hanger while part of the runway is used as the track.

Yet despite its reputation for squealing tyres and roaring car engines, less than a mile away sits the Tudor estate.

The plot consists of three different properties including a stunning seven bedroom home at its heart.

There are also a pair of charming two-bedroom cottages which sit among a number of gardens and wooded areas.

To one side of the main house lies a croquet lawn with a summer house and an apple orchard.

On the other side is a large terrace, a heated swimming pool and changing room.

David Frost, director of the Grantley Group, said: ‘There is quite a buoyant market for places like this at the moment.

‘We see clients moving to the UK maybe with families and animals are often looking for properties of this ilk.

‘We’ve rented this particular estate for several years and actually sold it fairly recently.

‘The buyer is looking to do a bit of work to it and it just made sense to have it making a bit of money in the meantime.

‘We’d expect any client to be of a fairly affluent background as running costs of a place like that don’t come cheap.’

Anyone who is interested in renting the site should contact the Grantley Group directly.
