Relaxation means something different for everyone. Some do yoga for tranquility. Others head out for nine holes.
But for the true Type A personality, something a bit more intense is often in order. That’s where Monticello Motor Club, North America’s Premier Automotive Country Club and Private Race Track, comes in.
“Being on the track takes your full concentration; you can’t think about anything else,” said MMC member John O. “It’s an experience that encompasses all of your senses.”
MMC’s 4.1-mile race track is designed to thrill both the experienced driver and the first-time Club member. Set on 670 wooded acres of undulating terrain, it features over 1.5 miles of straights, 450 feet of elevation changes, and 22 turns.
With over four miles and a variety of layouts, the course is capable of operating as three independent circuits that can run simultaneously. With so many configurations possible, it’s almost like coming to a new venue every time.
“When I get on track, all of the noise and tension of the work day is behind me,” said MMC Geoff L. “It’s an almost Zen experience. It’s about tuning out the outside world and the small things, and focusing completely on my technique.”
Just a 90-minute drive from New York City (25 minutes by helicopter), MMC is more than a race track. It’s a luxury motorsports destination for the whole family. Driving instructors (many of whom are professional racecar drivers) and exotic car rentals make even the most inexperienced novices feel at home, and a full-service karting track allows kids as young as six to get in on the action.
“The karting track is a great addition; it makes a trip to MMC a family day,” said MMC member Justin R., who brings his 12-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son with him when he visits. “It draws us all closer together.”
The best thing about MMC is the access afforded to its members. MMC allows its members nearly unlimited days of open race track time, and hosts a series of member races throughout each season. Members and their guests enjoy a stunning track-side clubhouse complete with a dining area, bar, kitchen, members-only lounge, private locker rooms and showers, wireless Internet, a pro shop, and attached temperature-controlled garages.
“There are no judgments at MMC about how fast you’re going, or how good your times are,” said MMC member Bob B. “The atmosphere is so supportive, and the MMC team – from the top down – makes it a fantastic experience every time.”
