    Wow, pretty good.

    What car was #1, Neal Stanley, driving?

    Google finds this, not sure if it's the same Neal Stanley though.

    Looks about right. 1st through 3rd were open wheel special construction race cars. The Tesla in 4th overall was the 1st street legal car.

    And a Nissan Frontier pickup truck, which finished ahead of a Honda S2000!

    Blair Reid took the Tesla Sport to 2nd fast time at the October 16th autocross in Boise. Please note that sign up listed Blair and I driving the wrong cars. Blair drove the Tesla and I drove the Vette.

    Here is the link. http://srrscca.com/SCCAEventResults/October%2016th,%202010/20101016_raw.htm

    Note also that 1st place was an A Modified non street legal race car (KART).
    We need to see more Tesla's in autocross.

    Blair finished top car, 4th raw score behind a top kart, Lola, and an A Modified (big kart). http://srrscca.com/SCCAEventResults/October%2030th%202010/20101030_raw.htm
    The next day Blair finished top raw score. The second day, weather was light showers and only one kart showed up but couldn't handle the wet pavement. The Tesla with slicks still does well in the rain. At signup they mistakenly put him as driving a vette but he was in fact in the Tesla. http://srrscca.com/SCCAEventResults/October%2031st%202010/20101031_raw.htm
    This was that last race of the season so we will prep the car for next year. Blair wants to take the Tesla to the Nationals.

    nice result!

    Is this the real "top gear"-track-comparison and not the scripted one? :cool:

    Nice vid. Though, in this case I'd rather be listening to the drivetrain whine and tire scrub than dubstep.

    Well Blair gave it all he had. The Tesla ran flawlessly but all he could do was 32nd out of 41 drivers. Tires were the limiting factor. 9 minutes of track time just about shredded those front 205 Hoosiers. The lead Porsche GT3 was running 255 front and 315 in the rear. The Vettes were running 315 up front and massive 345 tires in the rear.

    Nationals were an eye opener. Well there is always next year.

    Congrats to him I hope you're not disappointed. Was that his first nat's? If so he did quite well.
