Located in the heart of the Catskills, Monticello Motor Club features a 4.1-mile asphalt track with 22 unique turns and 1.5 miles of adrenaline-fueled straights. We will be using two configurations: the north course (1.9 miles) and the south course (1.6 miles). Participants will alternate exercises on the two courses throughout the day.
We will meet and eat in MMC’s track-side member clubhouse that includes a full kitchen and catering services, dining area, lounge, locker room with private lockers and a shower, and classroom space. MMC is able to provide fuel services and other track support as needed during the day.
