    Some of my friends are heading down to the Refuel 2015 event tomorrow (http://www.refuelraces.com/start.php) and are hearing that Tesla is "bringing" a supercharger to Laguna Seca.

    I'm not sure if this will be a permanent installation or just a temporary one for the event, although I don't see how that would work short of bringing LOADS of PowerPacks to power up the stalls...

    Anyone else heard of this?

    They had a temporary supercharger there, last year, as well.

    I thought they had (3) portable "doubles" last year?

    There are places at the track to use 3 phase high power industrial connections. Basically there is a way to plug into the HV transformers and directly power the superchargers there.
