<A HREF="http://www.monticellomotorclub.com/?gclid=COe7_YKou5UCFQwsGgodMlcIQg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.monticellomotorclub...lcIQg</A><p>This track, which is only about 30 minutes from where I <i>currently</i> live <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> has recently opened. <p>I thought that it was cool that upon opening my current issues of Car and Driver AND Road and Track, both had the track featured.<p>Car and Driver did a little writeup on the track, and Road and Track actually tested an M5 vs. a CTS-V there! They also had a little info on the track with a corner layout. <p>One of my contractors installed all the timing, scoring and video systems (which he told me about, and it sounds amazing) and one of my engineers who is a good friend of mine, did all of the erosion control inspections, so I go to hear about the track as it got put together and got to take a ride around as it was under construction. He's a racing enthusiast, and was giddy throughout the whole process. <p>Only $125k to join!!!

Re: Monticello Motor Club (volvosince16)

$125k when you look at it, isn't that expensive. <p>It's going to be equivalent to a very exclusive country club with full facilities....clubhouse, banquet facilities, guest houses / cottages. Plus it's got full service and garage facilities, etc. <p>It's quite a place, the track is amazing, and the location is gorgeous. <p>Well worth the $125k if you've got it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>BTW, couple of known people there at the opening. Mario, Brian Redman, Chris Economaki, etc.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Monticello Motor Club (Needsdecaf)

That would definately be fun. IMO the only downside is you might get sick of driving the same track over and over again!<p>The "CEO" in the CNBC special stated it was the first of its' kind which isn't true..<p>There are already some track clubs out there. The Autobahn CC in Joliet, IL is $35,000 for initiation and $3,000 for annual dues. It has a slightly shorter track, but some of the turns are incredible.<p>I watched a Lamborghini test driver demonstrate how to drift an LP640!<BR><BR>
