RaceCamp

We’re proud to introduce the Teen Race Camp at Monticello Motor Club, the world’s first sleep-away teen motorsports camp.

Open to teens ages 14-19, the Teen Race Camp is designed to teach your child valuable racing and defensive driving maneuvers that will benefit him or her on the road and on the track.

Students will learn basic and advanced racing skills, along with high-speed avoidance and sliding skills that will make them safer, more competent drivers on the road.

ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS WELCOME

NO DRIVER’S LICENSE REQUIRED

The Teen Race Camp at MMC includes:

  • Hours of seat time in MMC’s high-performance vehicles (including BMW M240, M4, race-prepared M2, X5M, spec Mazda MX-5 racecars, Sodi karts, Polaris RZRs)
  • Individually tailored one-on-one & small group instruction (to include simulated race starts & passing exercises)
  • Manual shifting instruction (if necessary)
  • All classroom materials

STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING DATES

THE #1 CAUSE OF ALL TEENAGE DEATHS ARE MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS (US Dept of Health and Human Services, May 2010) 

In the Northeast, a leading cause of teen accidents is deer.  When a deer jumps into the road, our instinct is turn and brake hard.  Result?  Braking-induced oversteer. In other words, we fly off of the road into a ditch or a tree.  Driver’s Education approach?  A PowerPoint slide explaining to “turn into a skid.”  But what does that mean?

The approach we take at MMC’s Teen Racing Camp? High-speed drills with sudden obstruction and avoidance exercises. Braking exercises.  Campers will explain why the instinctual response induces oversteer, what it means, what it feels like, and know – and practice until it becomes muscle memory – the correct reaction. Because on the road, there’s no time to think.  It’s everything your teens didn’t learn in Driver’s Ed, but unlike Driver’s Ed, they’ll love every minute.
