The sleek, high-performance vehicle hurdles from 0–60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds, letting drivers quench their appetite for speed as they sprint down straightaways and power-slide around hairpin turns. Normally closed to non-members, the driving club will be open on select Tuesdays exclusively for the experience offered in this Groupon, including an orientation, introductory passenger lap, and five 1.9-mile laps as a driver.
Monticello Motor Club
Carved through 175 acres of wooded terrain just 90 minutes outside New York City, Monticello Motor Club's 4.1-miles of smooth and twisty race-grade asphalt track gets drivers' blood pumping with 22 turns, 1.5 miles of straight-aways, and 450 feet of elevation changes. The private club is a luxury destination that offers its members professional driving instruction, premium car storage, trackside support, high-quality service, and nearly unlimited access to the track. The centerpiece of the private club, the track is the brainchild of international driving champion Brian Redman and track architect Bruce Hawkins, who crafted the winding raceway to test professional drivers while keeping it safe enough for first-time racers. The sound of growling engines echoes across the tree-lines on a daily basis as club members barrel down the track in luxury sedans and SR3 racecars, while afterward they can enjoy a meal prepared by the club's private chef.
