The Monticello Motor Club is a private country club for automotive enthusiasts with a 4.1 miles (6.6 km) long motor racing circuit situated in Monticello, New York. It opened on July 27, 2008 and was built on the site of the former Monticello Airport. In May 2010, Ari Straus, the President of the circuit, submitted a bid to host a Formula One race for a ten-year deal, beginning in 2012; But although the deal length was kept, the event was subsequently awarded to the city of Austin, Texas instead.
