Performance Flight sponsors race series at Monticello Motor Club, the Performance Flight Challenge

West Harrison, NY, June 11, 2013 Aiming to provide unique travel solutions to automotive enthusiasts and race teams, Performance Flight commits to be the naming sponsor of the Monticello Motor Club (MMC) race series, the Performance Flight Challenge.

"Many of the MMC members already use private aviation solutions, and it's a natural opportunity for Performance Flight to showcase our unique programs, "explained Lewis Liebert, a member of MMC and CEO of Performance Flight. "There's a wonderful synergy for all three of our divisions: flight training, jet charter, and aircraft management. And for those who actively race, they truly appreciate the benefits when travelling to racetracks, which are typically in remote locations best served by private aircraft."

"As a private pilot who rents aircraft from Performance Flight and utilizes their world-class flight instructors, I'm delighted to welcome them as a sponsor and partner," explained Ari Straus, President of MMC. "While MMC is only 90 minutes from Manhattan by car, many members and guests live farther away. Whether arranging a charter flight or taking a flight lesson in route, Performance Flight transforms visits from the east-end of Long Island or Boston from 3-5 hour drives into 30-60 minute flights."

The Performance Flight Challenge is a 5-race series for MMC members taking advantage of the unique 4.1 mile racetrack. Liebert, an avid racer himself, won the championship in 2012 and hopes to repeat his victory in his Porsche 911. "But since he's now a sponsor, he's not eligible to win again," quipped Straus.

According to Liebert, "Our programs focus on an elite group of clientele, those who seek the best service and appreciate value, and these are the same characteristics of MMC members."

Performance Flight operates a fleet of 25 aircraft and has been nationally recognized for its unique programs and emphasis on Aeronautical Decision Making, and maintaining a perfect safety record. They were just recognized by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association as one of the top 50 training centers in the United States. More information can be found online at

Monticello Motor Club was founded in 2008 as the premier automotive country club for track enthusiasts, from complete beginners to professional racers. Located just 90 minutes from Manhattan, the resort is the perfect getaway for the motorsport enthusiast. Co-designed by racing legend Brian Redman, the 4.1 mile track features 1.5 miles of straights, 22 unique turns, 12 different configurations, including a 3.6 mile Full Course, and over 450 feet of total elevation change. Members enjoy a variety of motorsports activities from nearly unlimited open-track driving and our own MMC racing series to special member-only events, including MMC-exclusive test drives in some of the world's most unique automobiles including a Bugatti Veyron, Gumpert Apollo, McLaren MP4-12c, and Lexus LFA.

Now open for its fifth season, the Club has expanded its offerings with a new clubhouse, complete with classrooms, kitchen, bar, pro-shop, members' lounge, locker rooms, and attached hot pit temperature-controlled garages, more private garages, karting for member's children, and expanded driving instruction programs, including our sanctioned 2-day Spec Miata Racing School, a 2-day Radical Racecar Experience, and a 1-day Radical Advanced Racing School.
