It is a fun hobby for us. It is a great way to get out there and drive at very high speeds in a controlled environment. And, there are people with all kinds of cars, from cars that look like they put it together in their garage to million dollar cars. Everyone is here to have a good time.
I’ve been a member of all sorts of sports clubs throughout my life, and the people at MMC are some of the friendliest, most open people I’ve come across. But particularly as it pertains to (my son) Max, they just couldn’t be better.
We’re fortunate to both love racing cars, and we’ve found a place we can do it together. MMC is so convenient; it gives us the ability to go to the track when we want, as opposed to having to work around a club or track’s schedule.
If you haven’t been to Monticello Motor Club before, you should come try it. There’s only one way to experience this. You have to come here, drive the track and experience what it is for yourself.
Everyone here goes out of their way to make sure you have a good experience. It is incredible how attentive and how focused they are to make sure the member experience is great.
I think the nice thing about a setup like MMC is that there are a lot of members looking to get different experience out of racing. I have been able to get great advice and direction about different types of racing and what series to get involved in. It has been pretty helpful.
Regardless of where I am in my career, my coaching will always be every bit as valuable as my driving. I so enjoy sharing what I’ve learned with other drivers, and MMC is the ultimate place to teach, practice, and race.
I looked in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. I even considered Watkins Glen International. Once I visited MMC, I knew I’d found my Camaro’s future home.
Once I saw the relaxed atmosphere of the Club, especially during the member races, I was in. I loved all the race talk going on in the pits during the race; I knew right then that I wanted to do as many of them (member races) as I could, and soon!
The racing schools are great, and we’re making them even better. Our instructors are prepared to deliver the best possible experience to MMC members and their guests, and that’s what this is all about.
“MMC is a long track with several different configurations and many corner variations. It is technical and challenging. That’s what makes instructing here so much fun.”
I felt real satisfaction moving past the novice, beginner stage. Then I learned how to keep learning, how to accomplish improvement on my own.
Everything we do, we do as a family. These kids have lived the lives of seasoned travelers. Now all they talk about is coming here to MMC.
We’ve all done some crazy adventurous stuff together – heli-skiing among them – and MMC is right in line with that. Honestly it hadn’t occurred to me that MMC could be a family thing we could all enjoy. It’s great!
