Monti is F-ing OUT. Apparently they only want movie stars and stockbrokers with a 6 figure initiation fee riding on their beloved track. It's a shame too, the 66 layout is SICK. Sportbike track time had a shot, but got denied last minute. It might have something to do with their last outing there, I heard they couldn't finish a single lap without a crash, all day long, every session. Did not bode well for future motorcycle track days. TPM was going for it too, but in the end they wanted it "private and elite".
Limerock is no good for motorcycles, no run off and lots of walls. TPM is doing Pocono raceway this year, which isn't too far from NYC/Tri-state. NJMP is pretty sweet though, but you are right about traffic. I usually try to show up between 10pm and 1am the day before a track day, and go right to sleep. You still have Loudon, and Summit Point in WV, both about 5 hours drive from NYC.
It would be really nice though if we could get a Monti-esque track somewhere within an hour of NYC (without the snobs and crazy elitist memberships). Maybe somewhere on Long Island, or Rockland county even. Now that would something! One can only hope....
