Please Excuse the 2017 BMW M2 For Smoking

May 4, 2017

Roger Garbow of Men's Health writes about the BMW M2 after sharing some time on the track with MMC Track Director Chris Duplessis. "The M2 immediately felt more nimble and less harsh than its big brother M3 and M4. The seats are excellent, providing enough adjustability and comfort for all-day cruising while delivering the rib and thigh-gripping support needed for clipping apexes. In pursuit of those G-forces, I headed to Monticello Motor Club." Continue Reading

March 29, 2017

Lawrence Ulrich of IEEE Spectrum shares his thoughts on the Ford Focus RS, which he first experienced on the track at MMC in a test with Ben "The Stig" Collins, formerly of the popular BBC show Top Gear. "Ford’s little beastie is designed to handle the dirt and snow of rally racing, or your best simulation—including a 447-kW (600-hp) version that superstar racer Ken Block will drive in the FIA Rallycross series. But my first taste of it comes at the Monticello Motor Club, the ... Continue Reading

I drove the fastest Jaguar sports car in the world — and it was incredible

March 20, 2017

Benjamin Zhang of Business Insider reviews the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR after taking it out for a test drive on the track at MMC. "At New York's Monticello Motor Club, the SVR took to the racetrack like a fish to water. In twisty sections, the Jag's active aerodynamics and adjustable suspension kept the car stable. When pushed hard in corner, you can feel the rear end push out only to be brought back into line by the all-wheel-drive system. Exiting the bend, the SVR's 575 ponies come to life as th ...

March 2, 2017

An by Ezra Dyer on PopularMechanics.com details time spent with seven of the best ATVs available on MMC's off-road track. "To navigate the landscape of today's ATV, we assembled seven of the best all-terrain vehicles we could get our hands on at Monticello Motor Club's off-road park ninety miles outside Manhattan.

How to Get the Most Out of a Porsche 911

December 28, 2016

Hannah Elliott of Bloomberg.com reviews the Porsche 911, recommending you take it to the track to maximize the driving experience. "Joining a track club isn’t cheap, but it does offer the chance to push your car to the very edge of physics. The 911 Carrera I drove comes with Porsche’s unique flat-six twin turbocharged 370-horsepower engine. It has 331 pounds-feet of torque. (Or so they say.) How do you really know? It would be a shame not to put those numbers to the test. At places such ... Continue Reading

The McLaren 570GT Is a Supercar for Grown-Ups

November 30, 2016

Lawrence Ulrich reviews the McLaren 570GT after taking it out on the track at Monticello Motor Club. "As we learned in a back-to-back test of the 570S and ultra-hardcore 675LT at New York’s Monticello Motor Club, it basically takes a racetrack to expose the 570’s performance handicaps versus McLaren’s pricier Super Series models. Dropped onto public roads like a British commando, the 570GT assaulted anything in its path, until I wanted to pin a medal on its aluminum chest. With settings ... Continue Reading
