This past Saturday, October 26th, 2019 was Tesla Fest East at NCCAR hosted by Out of Spec Motoring. Many Model 3 owners showed up to take their car on the track and experience what the car can really do, as well as a handful of Model S and Model X vehicles.
Owners came from locations far and wide including California, Chicago, New Hampshire and Florida to join in on the festivities. Track mode claimed many many tires lives that day. Many amps as well.
The track is about 2 miles long with a half mile straightaway. The performance Model 3’s in the hands of more experienced drivers were able to get up to 125 mph or higher. My top speed was 114 mph and while I probably could have gone a little faster, I didn’t want to burn up my brake pads too severely. Then again, this is the only time I’ve actually used my brakes so it evens out.
Tesla Fest East was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a car to date and I cannot wait until next years event. Hopefully even more owners show up to enjoy some laps around the track and learn about their cars abilities in a safe and controlled environment.
