Charging at COTA

Just curious if anyone from this thread was successful in taking their Tesla racing on COTA and whether charging at the RV park worked out.
Yes it worked out great. They allowed to charge at the RV site which was really helpful in-between sessions. Luckily I had my onewheel scooter so I could quickly go back and forth from the RV site to the paddocks.

Ok, maybe the last word about charging at COTA. Attached are three pics of a pedestal outside the garage area near the track entrance. It’s basically a remote pedestal for the receptacles inside the nearby garage. So, the only slightly crazy thing to do would be to get a Wall Connector and build a custom 60A capable pigtail wired into a Mennekes plug that could pull 48A, 240V from this receptacle. Probably want to get an OK from COTA first.

What is the email for the COTA RV manager?

Whom did you get ahold of for the EV charging? Do you have an email?
This was done through the racing organization/group that rented out COTA. I don't know who from COTA ultimately gave access. But there is a kiosk with usually somebody there working/standing guard so maybe you can ask them if you are allowed to use one of the RV sites to charge.
