What is Test Days?


IMPA Test Days returns Tuesday and Wednesday, October 15-16 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.

Although tickets are available for guests, driving is limited to IMPA members during Test Days.

The Village of Monticello is in the Catskill Mountains region of the state. The weather during the fall can range from the lower 50s to the high 60s. 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 cars and trucks through their paces while touring through the beautiful hills in the region. The day concludes with the annual banquet at the The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark (https://www.thekartrite.com/).

Wednesday, day two begins with breakfast at The Kartrite, followed by evaluation runs at Monticello Motor Club. On-road driving and Off-roading will also continue on day two.

  • Product displays and demonstrations will be set up both days.
  • Registration will be setup both days at Monticello Motor Club and on day one in the evening at The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark.
  • Members will again vie for prizes, generously supplied by our sponsors and members.
  • Tickets will be available online or by mail starting in the late spring/summer.
  • We turn to the entire membership for volunteers, without whom there would be no Test Days.
  • Remember, this is your event…suggestions for improvements to Test Days 2019 should be referred to any of the officers and directors.
