Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic together.

Monticello Motor Club is, once again, open to Members and guests.

The Club is committed to protecting the health of our Members, guests, and staff. Like many others, we will are taking precautionary measures as recommended by the CDC and local governments before, during, and after all of our Members and guest experiences.

  • The temperature of all staff, members and guests will be taken prior to entry into the Club.
  • All staff, members and guests will be required to wear a mask when unable to maintain a social distance of at least 6′.
  • After each use, vehicles are given a steam treatment to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria in a safe, eco-friendly manner.
  • Vehicles will be delivered to our guests fully sanitized with the steering wheel and shifter wrapped in plastic for the driver to remove upon arrival.
  • All equipment is laundered and sanitized before each use.

We are fortunate that motorsports is uniquely geared for this health crisis. Unlike other sports, our typical on-track uniforms boast full coverage of nasal passages (balaclavas), protective shields (full-faced helmets), and skin protection (head-to-toe Nomex gear). Without passengers, we self-quarantine whenever we drive on track, while engaging in critical exercise and stress relief – something we all need during this historic time.

Let MMC be an escape where you can enjoy life in a safer, controlled environment.  We look forward to welcoming you to the property.

MX FAST FIVE: MMC WITH 2017 MX-5 CHAMP GALLAGHER

Courtesy of MazdaMotorsport: 2017 Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup Champion Patrick Gallagher has had a busy 2018 season, putting his $200,000 in Mazda support towards competing in the IMSA SportsCar Challenge top GS class.

When he’s not racing, he’s teaching others how to do so, usually at Monticello Motor Club. Gallagher spends so much time up at MMC, he has some quick suggestions on what the drivers and teams should keep an eye out for as the series prepares to stage a double-race Saturday for the championship-deciding season finale.

Patrick Gallagher Fast Five: Monticello Motor Club

What is this track like?

1. Monticello Motor Club offers a little bit of everything as it was designed to be a track where drivers can learn and progress whether it be their first day on track or the 10th season of driving. I have been a Pro Instructor here for 5 seasons now and love the track and the facility. The south half of the track features a more technical  driving style as there are slower corners that take a bit of patience where the north half of the racetrack features some faster corners that take commitment. On top of being technical and also needing to be committed there are three long straightaways that should be perfect for the Global MX5 Cup car to catch a draft.

Whats the fast way around MMC?

2. I suggest trying to do a track walk as there are some key little details about the track that are not exactly easy to see when you’re driving but would help explain some of the techniques that are needed to be fast around MMC.
