Monticello Motor Club’s racetrack is comprised of 4.1 miles of pristine race-grade asphalt. The “Full Course” is 3.6 miles long, with 20 turns and 450 feet of elevation changes. The course can also be run in North (1.9 miles), South (1.6 miles), and Mushroom (0.7 miles) configurations.
The track was designed by Brian Redman in partnership with Bruce Hawkins, an engineer with PS&S. PS&S designed Virginia International Raceway and New Jersey Motorsports Park. In 2007, MMC engaged the services of well-known, active professional racers, including our own Nick Longhi, who reviewed and improved sections of the track.
In 2011, MMC engaged Tony Cotman from FIA and IndyCar to provide modifications required to achieve an FIA Grade 2 certification that would enable MMC to host professional races. Those suggested changes were incorporated into an updated master site plan that was approved by the Village of Monticello in 2013.
Monticello Motor Club sits on the property of what once was the Monticello Airport. The property was purchased by Paul Queally, MMC’s Principal Partner & Chairman, and partners. In May 2006, the “Drive and Race Club” site plan was approved for development by the Town of Thompson. Founding Members began joining and using the Club in 2007, and in 2008 the Drive and Race Club was renamed “Monticello Motor Club”. Thanks to the support and investment of the Club’s Ownership, the Queally family, Monticello Motor Club has continually improved and grown its facilities and offerings since its inception. MMC has a new executive team in place, and our future plans are as exciting and grand as ever. Over the next five years, MMC will undertake multiple significant leading projects to distinguish Monticello Motor Club further and attract national and global attention to MMC and the area.
