    Well, as the only Canadian stop on the "Get Amped Tour", it was about time that we have our own thread to talk about the event.
    I am hoping that some of my fellow Roadster owners will want to try to rendezvous ahead of time to talk about the Model S.

    P.S. My wife loves to drive the Roadster but does not know that I am reservation holder #22 for a Canadian Signature. I hope she will forgive me when she finds out.

    Better to ask for forgiveness... Right? Congrats. Have fun at the event.

    Since I did the Fremont thing I don't think I'm gonna get invited!

    Doug, given that you are a Roadster owner, a Model S Can Sig res holder and more importantly, a champion for Tesla in Canada, I'd be really surprised if Tesla doesn't let you attend the event and not offer you a drive too if you ask.

    I'm sure Hans will take pity on me.

    Doug, I hope you will consider attending the event even if Tesla can't officially say that you might be allowed to drive.

    Yeah, I'll probably bring my Roadster - good excuse for a road trip.

    At the very least I've been promised a back seat by one of the other reservation holders.

    I'd love to come, but it's August long weekend - that's cabin time for my family, and my wife's birthday. And she wants to be at the cabin...

    I'm hoping that being one of the latest test drive events, there will be few enough people left to test drive in the area that a non-reservation holder like myself (for now) will be able to get a test drive.

    Call Hans, see if you can get a second invite. If not I have room for an extra passenger for my test ride Sun 8/5 11 am. Glad to have you on board if you want to jump on it.

    Didn't you already get your drive in Fremont?

    Maybe they will give you another email after they send one out to all the reservation holders.

    Hi All,

    Signed up for 10 am Friday. Really looking forward to it.

    A couple of questions for the group :)
    1. Can you switch drivers mid-drive?
    2. Can you add passengers at a later date (so far it is just my wife and I)?
    3. Can non-reservation holders apply for a drive on these dates? I have a friend who is really keen on ordering one but wants a test drive.

    Only 2 things will stop me getting this car:
    1. I don't fit in it (I'm 6'6").
    2. Tesla decides on an outrageous premium for Canadian pricing.

    Thanks

    1. Tesla says no.
    2. Yes; atleast at Fremont, they didn't actually check the passengers' IDs or anything like that as long as they (the passengers) brought along a printout of the test drive confirmation.
    3. One can sign up on the Get Amped page but, probably no chance till all reservation holders are exhausted.

    Hi Doug. I've booked for Friday from 2-3pm if you want to be my guest. I know it won't be the same as driving but we would love to entice you to come to Toronto. I have a 70 amp HPC about 15 minutes from the test drive location.

    Good to know about the HPC! It's so rare that I get to use 70A on the road.

    I would enjoy riding along - during my drive I was concentrating on the handling and performance of the car, not the other aspects. It would be great to have a better look at it. I'll have to see if I could make it for Friday.

    Hans did confirm that I won't get an invite because I drove in Fremont. Maybe if I show up they'll find a way to slip me in somewhere... :wink:

    Doug, isn't the Model S going to be your wife's car?

    If she didn't get to go to Freemont with you, then Hans really should acquiesce imo...

    If I'd known they were going to give you grief on this, I'd have saved a back seat spot fer ya...:redface:

    She actually doesn't like to drive. Go figure.
