Monticello Motor Club to host U.S. F1 race? Perhaps...
In recent days, however, a new venue has jumped in as a possible host: the Monticello Motor Club. Monticello is a private motorsports country club located about 75 miles northwest of Manhattan. The track has a maximum length of 4.1 miles with 22 turns depending on the configuration, and would make a magnificent site for an F1 race. While there is an airport nearby, and the track itself is new, having opened in 2008, there are currently no spectator facilities. If Monticello gets the deal to host a Grand Prix, a lot of work would have to be done, meaning a race probably wouldn't happen until at least 2012 or maybe even 2013.
