YOU might say Mt Walker dad Andrew Johanson has the perfect place to train for a fun run.
The 45-year-old's 161ha property has a racing circuit built on it, which Mr Walker primarily uses for motorkhana - a form of motorsport.
Once a year though, the circuit is transformed into a running track as the father of two prepares for next month's annual Bridge to Brisbane event.
For the past couple years, he has been taking part in the run to raise funds and awareness for Autism Queensland.
Mr Johanson said the organisation had provided his youngest son Luke with vital support.
He said his five-year-old son had been diagnosed with autism and had a severe speech delay.

"When he was diagnosed, my wife and I realised how much help we needed," he said.
"Autism Queensland was able to provide Luke with a lot of opportunities to aid his development.
"They helped us get access to an occupational speech therapist and obtain funding for an iPad that has applications on it specially designed to help autistic children learn."
Mr Johanson said his Bridge to Brisbane fundraising campaign was his way of saying "thank you" to Autism Queensland.
"The organisation has done so much to help my family ... I wanted to do something to give back," he said.

He said he hoped to reach his fundraising target of $2700 ... as well as his race time target of 44 minutes.
Autism Queensland is the state's longest serving and most experienced agency with more than 47 years of service.
