    There's a Tesla event in Hong Kong on 7th December 2013, starting 6:30pm @ Stanley Plaza, for roadster owners and Model S reservation holders. Invites are going out by eMail now.

    We're trying to organise a rally for Tesla Roadster owners going to the event. Details are:

    Parking is gonna be tough at Stanley on a Saturday night, but we've managed to make arrangements for a special parking area dedicated to the roadster owners on this rally.

    Bugger, I'll only return to HK later that evening and can't make it... I really want to go and and meet other Tesla fans and hear more on their HK roll-out progress.

    This event will announce pricing of Model S in Hong Kong or not?

    Rally details:

    P.S. Interestingly, Lung Wo Road was to have been the site of next year’s Formula-e race in Hong Kong (but we just got bumped for Rio). Oh well, at least we can give them a little preview of what EVs look like.

    Nice! There were so many cameras, I didn't notice yours. I'm fairly obvious in the video - the big red Father Christmas shirt.

    I enjoyed the evening, especially the short roadster drive, but am just getting over a cold so left after a few songs from the loud French band.

    The Model S sound and light show was brilliantly done, and I've attached my own cellphone video of that to the previous post.

    Oh, yes, we saw you Mark, when you did the line-up! Great honour they included you there.

    I was too busy giving interviews and having my photo taken:

    Core at Tesla event 7-12-2013.jpg

    My camera was just a tiny GoPro, which I discretely (and without asking anyone) climbed up into a lighting mast and mounted, then retrieved after the 5th song by the French band.

    I have to go to work this morning so I couldn't stay for the ending either.

    Impressed by your boldness.

    You know markwj, I always see a white Roaster charging in the car park in City hall Wilson's car park on Saturday or Sunday mornings. Didn't see it in the photos though.

    There are a few white ones here (Gigi Chao has one, her refurbished-after-crash old one another, and a third imported from UK, are three that come to mind).

    I like the colour - especially when contrasted with lots of black carbon fibre. The Panda Bear look.

    lx3h,

    They were looking for people to interview, apparently. There were almost as many photographers as guests (exaggerated a bit here).

    Anyway, I was approached and asked and the asked me so I answered.

    Boldness, yeah, I guess so :)

    Now where are those delivery dates and prices for HK ah!
