Tesla takes Model S to the Circuit of the America’s

Tesla Motors just posted on their facebook page that they’d taken a Model S to the Circuit of the America’s.  MotoGP is going to be there next weekend (and… uh… if the TTXGP/e-Power merger had happened more quickly, the eRoadRacing race would have been happening that same weekend). 

They took 6 laps around the track – and don’t say anything about the characteristics of that lap but did leave this picture for us.

This isn’t, of course, the first time Model S’s have run on a race track.  A whole fleet of them came to the 2012 REFUEL race at Laguna Seca.

Evade blocked charging stations with one of these handy J1772 extension cords.
