WHAT IS TEST DAYS?
IMPA Test Days returns Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23-24 to Monticello Motor Club (www.monticellomotorclub.com) in Monticello, NY. Test Days is a two-day event providing members the opportunity to sample a broad number of vehicles in a variety of venues.
Guest tickets are available but, driving is limited to IMPA members during Test Days.
The Village of Monticello is located in the Catskill Mountains region of the state. The weather during the fall can range from the high 50s to the mid 70s. Check the weather reports and come prepared for two full days outdoors.
Tuesday, day one at Monticello Motor Club, members will have the opportunity to put a variety of four-wheel drive vehicles through their paces off-road along the wooded outskirts of the facility.
While some members enjoy off-roading, others will find a variety of cars and trucks available for touring through the beautiful hills in the region. The day concludes with our annual banquet at the Resorts World Catskills (https://rwcatskills.com).
Returning for the first day of Test Days will be instructor lead classroom sessions followed by instructed track time in select Platinum Sponsor vehicles.
Wednesday, day two begins with breakfast at Resorts World Catskills, followed by evaluation runs at Monticello Motor Club. On-road driving and Off-roading will continue on day two.
-Product displays and demonstrations will be set up both days.
