    Fun. You should have another ~10s to be found in the car.

    There is definitely more time to be found... will have to do it again :)

    It was 3 seconds faster than my previous best and left me in 9th place overall for the event.

    The fastest time of the day for a production car was 1:47 - made by a semi-pro driver in a Model 3.

    Refuel EV day at Laguna Seca yesterday... did a 1:57.784 in the time trial beating my personal best (1.5 Roadster with original battery).

    The Performance Model 3 is quick - nothing else production there could touch them.

    905Wh/mile average :)

    Figure that is about 40 miles of range when fully changed (70% battery).

    Nick, it was great meeting you at the track and seeing someone using the capabilities our cars have.
