Semi-private and Master Class programs will be available throughout the season beginning in June, giving seasoned drivers new options for improving their track driving or race craft skills.
Offered on select days with specific instructors, MMC’s new semi-private instruction program is available to solo-rated Blue, Black, or Red drivers at a fraction the price of all-day private lessons. Members will receive approximately two hours of one-on-one instruction: a one-hour morning lesson (30-minute open passing session under the instructor’s observation followed by a 30-minute one-on-one coaching session, including video/data review when appropriate) and a one-hour afternoon lesson (same format.) Cost per member: $550 or 0.75 Fleet Points.
Saturday, June 12 | 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Saturday, June 26 | 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Unlike one-on-one instruction (private or semi-private), Master Classes are group programs where members learn together. “Track Masters” programs (non-competitive performance driving) are available to advanced drivers (Black or Red), and “Race Masters” programs (racing focused) are limited to racers (Red.) Curriculums include video and data comparisons and feedback.
Master Classes are free to Founding, Family, and Gold members, and $500 to all others. Sign up for as many Master Classes as you’d like.
Cancelation/No-Show Policies: to discourage speculative reservations, Founding, Family, and Gold Members will be charged $500 per cancelation (regardless of notice given) or no-show. Corporate, Silver, and Bronze Members are not eligible for refunds for cancelations (regardless of notice given) or no-shows.

Anyone who participated in or watched last month’s Member Challenge saw our racing teens’ outstanding performance as they closed out their spring season of Varsity Racing. Later that evening, the group of fourteen teen Members celebrated a successful season at their awards banquet, where they announced their next focus: a partnership with Kids4Kids, an organization that raises money for children and families struggling with medical challenges. In this case, money raised by the Kids4Kids Monticello Motor Club Junior Committee will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The group of teens is excited about their ability to utilize the racing platform they have to make a difference to families struggling with medical related expenses. The Junior Committee is being spearheaded by Varsity Racing participants, but is open to any of MMC’s teens and gives them the opportunity to help raise funds, organize and attend visits to hospitals, and organize fundraising events. The Committee is already organizing a fundraising competition where the teen who raises the most will win a custom race suit with Kids4Kids and MMC logos. As the teens further develop these programs, be on the lookout for more details on how you can help!
As if racing alone doesn’t look cool enough on a college application, now these teens can add charity work, too!
By Alexander Crispi
The first thing I noticed about 16-year-old Varsity racer Jacob Naclerio is his commitment to driving — while most high school juniors relish the opportunity to relax after stressful school days, Jacob doubles down on his weekday work from Eastchester High School so that he can race at MMC on the weekends. Jacob may not have his driver’s license yet, but don’t let that fool you – this hardworking and determined teen is giving many MMC members a run for their money. He plans to continue pursuing his passion next season, despite the incoming stresses of senior year. Get to know Jacob a bit more in my interview with him below.
How long have you been racing?
My first time ever driving was at Monticello in 2019 when I was 15. I started racing in the Varsity league after I did Teen Camp in August 2020.
What would an average Varsity day look like for you?
We would start off with 3 open passing sessions as a warm up, each about 20 minutes long. Then we have lunch, followed by two to three races, each around 20 minutes long. Between each race or session, we would go to the gallery or mod-pit, and normally have a 25 minute classroom, and the instructors would go over what they saw and help us to improve our racing.
What is it like balancing racing and school? Any tips and tricks you would recommend to managing your time?
I would say that staying on top of school work should be a priority, and think of MMC not as something that you have to do but something that you enjoy doing, and like a getaway from school and everything else.
Describe yourself in one word. Why that word?
Perseverant – in school, racing, or other activities. In middle school, I did not get into the advanced classes that my friends did, but I persevered and now, I’m in just as many AP and Honors classes as all of them.
How does your family feel about you racing?
My sister is looking forward to start racing at MMC! My mom does get nervous about me racing. My dad does not really seem to be nervous at all – he trusts me behind the wheel.
What do you love the most about racing?
I’ve been into cars all my life, so being able to be in one and safely go as fast as I want and drive my own car on a track is the most fun thing.
Do you think you’ve learned any valuable life lessons from racing that apply off-track? If so, what are they?
Build relationships. Once you leave the track, you leave racing behind, but don’t leave the friendships behind; try and carry those beyond the track and MMC.
What do your friends at school think about your racing?
It is a little weird for them. I don’t think they fully understand it. They all make jokes about it too, because nobody else they know has done anything close to racing actual cars on a track.
If you could give one piece of advice to a future teen MMC racer, what would it be?
Trust yourself — just be confident knowing that you have control of the car. Knowing you can handle every situation is the most important thing when you go out and race.
What do you love most about racing?
It’s an escape from school work, studying and the stress. When I am up at MMC there is no stress or anxiety; it is just fun with people that I enjoy being around.
Members are now allowed to bring their canine family to MMC! During track hours (including lunch), dogs must be leased at all times, and may not enter hot pit areas. Once all tracks are cold for the day (look for flashing red lights at marshal stations), members may run, walk, and bike (let Concierge know if you’d like to use one of our on-site electric bikes!) on-track while canine counterparts run leash-free! Owners must clean up after their dogs, and accept full responsibility and liability.
Since some members are allergic to dogs, pets are never allowed inside club facilities. No exceptions will be made for hypoallergenic or emotional support dogs, but we might post your Internet-purchased certificate in the Member Lounge.
