Winter Driving Series – Monticello Motor Club

Let the snow fly –

The MMC Winter Driving Series is designed to deliver driving excitement, rally car style, on our track that happens to be covered with ice and snow!


On December 20th, 2008, weather permitting, MMC will be opening for the first time in the winter. An exciting fun filled day of getting sideways and mastering four-wheel drifts awaits you. Come check out Dave Mirra, BMX legend and 2008 Rally America Rookie of the Year. He will be driving his Open Class 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car. Vermont Sports Car, who runs Subaru Rally Team USA will be bringing Travis Pastrana's championship winning 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car for participants to check out.


Utilizing the South Circuit, groomed to perfection, the Winter Driving Series will be open to all driving enthusiasts. Bring your friends and family to watch as you test the limits of your car through time-trials, open lapping sessions, and other exciting formats. Just because winter is here doesn’t mean the motoring fun must come to a halt. So let it snow at the Monticello Motor Club.


Winter Driving Series Highlights:

· MMC South Circuit - 1.8 Miles with 11-turns consisting of large sweepers, increasing and decreasing radius corners, and thrilling elevation changes.

· Exciting Formats – Go against the clock in head to head time trials or test, tune, and practice your skills in our open lapping sessions.

· Rally Events – Break out the rally car, mix it up with fellow drivers and put on a show for spectators.

Reports were very light turnout, even with all the snow a "dry" line formed quite quickly resulting in a rather rough transition from sliding to grip and significant tire wear. I did an event in similiar conditions at Weymouth Air Station years ago and it's pretty harsh on the car. Hopefully they can figure out some kind of grooming solution, otherwise you'll need to find creative lines.
