Are you living in a Manhattan Penthouse on the Upper East Side, wondering what to do this weekend? Wishing you could take out your Enzo without loosing it in a pothole? Well you’re in luck! For the small price of $125,000 (plus $7,500 yearly dues) you can join the Monticello Motor Club. You will gain access to a 4.1-mile professional-grade racetrack that is located just 90 miles from Manhattan. But it is by invitation only, just like your golf course.

A $50 million investment has transformed the old Monticello Airport into the 22-turn Monticello Motor Club, opening on July 27. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld and NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon have already joined. Motorsports legends Mario Andretti and Brian Redman will race there on opening day. The track will operate from April to November and members can enjoy 200 days of access.

The 650-acre complex will include a 30,000-square-foot clubhouse with fine dining, a spa, and overnight luxury suites. Racers can drop in by using the club’s helipad, and store their racecars in a temperature-controlled garage. Rentals will also be available including modern, vintage and Formula 1 racers.

Another club that separates the rich to the regular Joe’s. O well, it’s not like everyone can race that well anyways. I wonder if they have trainers like caddies in golf, in that club as well for those rich people yet non racer type of members.
