    A few of us went to a driver's education and autocross event at Evergreen Speedway near Seattle on Feb 2nd 2013. There were 5 MS and 1 Roadster. It was a lot of fun and very educational. Here is a video showing excerpts of the various courses:
    1. Emergency Braking
    2. Slalom
    3. Figure 8 on wet pavement
    4. Autocross Run
    5. Accident Avoidance



    Since we did not have a non-driver camera person, we only captured certain runs. It was a full day event that ran from 8 am to 5 pm. The run numbers in the caption are just to allow viewers to anticipate number of runs shown and to scroll through the video as needed. There may have been runs in between.

    Personally, the cars may not look fast on the video and it felt very fast and I had to respond very quickly when I was driving. The MS was fast and handled beautifully. All the instructors were clamoring to ride with us.

    If you get a chance to attend such an event, I highly recommend it.

    Enjoy!

    Yup, it was a Quattro event. The organizers and participants were great with many different cars at the event.

    In addition to being very welcoming and interested in the Model S, they mentioned multiple times that they'd like to have us back. I think they meant the cars though, not necessarily the people. ;)
