    We're hosting an electric car show and tell with a guest speaker from Tesla's development facility in California.

    Tesla Model S, Tesla Roadster, ZOE, Leaf, Ampera, electric bikes, and even the towns electric truck will be on display :smile:

    The Cheese And Grain

    - - - Updated - - -

    Our special guest is Malcolm Burgess who's responsible for "Structural Concepts and Vehicle Dynamics" at Tesla. Mal was originally from Frome and is on a private visit to the UK. His talk will undoubtedly provide some real insight into the design of the Model S and Teslas future low cost EVs.

    Please do join us... it's not every day that you get access to a brit working at the top of the most progressive engineering company in the world :smile:

    Hi Kevin,

    I must be missing something, but I cannot see details on the link.

    What time is the event? Presumably at the Cheese and Grain? (can see all kind of events on their site, just not this one!)

    Any info much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Mark

    Look forward to seeing you there @VintageMark. Did you get your i3 at Dick Lovetts? The sales guy there asked me to take my Tesla over there when I get it because he has the "Hots" for them. Funny Eh?
