Starts out with me following Robertís Switzer out of the pits onto the track. Rob is the organizer of that St-Lac Lapping event BTW. By far the best time Iíve ever had with a Lotus and Rob is a great guy, on and off the track. Great lapping day, great organizer.

Here are some pics of that day.

There was 5 Tesla that day at Shannonville!! How many times do you see that when I now know there are only 21 sold in Canada.


If anybody has an electric car and they want to lapp it, they were donated a some-kind of electric whatever to recharge. From what I know, it only cost $4 to fully recharge a Telsa and takes 20 minutes and its good for 4 hours of lapping. $4 = 4 hours. It cost me a quarter of a tank per half hour!!?


And No its not from this power supply. They need 220 but it was funny to see cars plug into every available outlet to run fans on their motors. Now thatís a different sight at a track!

My brother owned one of those MR-2 Spyders. What a POS.

Great pics, thanks for sharing them.

What did the Teslas sound like on the track? All tire noise?

Weirdest thing ever, when I took those pics of them driving on the pits just about ready to go on track, its dead silence. You only hear the tires rolling. absolutely no sound. When they were on track at full speed its was the same. Not even an hissing of an electric motor. Only tires noise as they were full throttle on straight going into the big curve. It does take away some of the Motorsport pleasure of hearing the engine and BTW there is no gear on those. One gear and lots of torque as soon as you touch the pedal

But imagine $4 for 4 hours of tracking!?
