    Really great to watch, thanks. Looking at the power meter is fun too - from max. It's swinging from max power to max regen all the time ;)

    Not bad...it looks like the Roadster S held its own on the course and I also noticed very little body roll. wow.

    It was huge fun! You can read my comments here:

    On the Race Track

    So, just at the end of the second free-driving session I got an overheating warning!

    :(.... how long was the course and what were your lap times? How afterwards did it take to get back to normal levels?

    To my shame, I do not know the length of the track. It is a little track. There was no lap time recording. It was a safety - day, and the did not want the people to drive too fast. Besides racing cars on a circuit is forbidden iN Switzerland since the dramatic incident in Le Mans many years ago.
    One slow lap and it was o.k.

    mitrovic,

    can you describe the incident and name the persons involved and maybe even give the year......? I know that racing was banned in Switzerland sometimes in the early 70s but I am not quite sure why except I was told it was due to a horrific accident at Le Mans.....?! does the person(s) involved in the accident still have any records to be noted?

    thanks

    felix b.

    thanks!

    I was of the understanding that racing was banned during the 70s........... during the era of the Swiss drivers......... but then the stories told were similar to the fact just with a wrong (later) date.

    thanks again very informative and ...... sad!

    Here in the US we have incredibly short memories. They would be back within a year.

    Christ. 79 people in a single crash? I just can't imagine the horror.
