Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic together.

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

 

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.

 

Upon reopening, MMC will once again be an escape for our members, their families, and our guests, where they can enjoy life in a safer, controlled environment.  We look forward to welcoming you to the property.

The Mark II isn’t street-legal but at the same time eschews the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) rules that allowed the mid-engined GT to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and other endurance events. The new car’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 combines a high-flow exhaust, straight exhaust pipes, a higher-spinning turbo, a rooftop air intake, and the Mark I’s port injection to boost output from 647 horsepower at 6,250 rpm to 700 at 6,350, but the car’s entire purpose is…Continue reading.
