An all-Tesla racing series? Nothing factory-sanctioned for now
Apparently, some prospective Roadster owners in the Middle East are interested in starting up a single-make series. A report earlier this week indicates they are in talks with the manufacturer so we contacted communications manager Rachel Konrad find out what's happening. According to Konrad "I can confirm we've seen increased demand in the Middle East in recent months, and some customers there have said that they may race their Roadsters."
Konrad goes on to say "The Roadster's acceleration certainly makes it competitive against other premium sports cars, so it's not surprising that some customers are interested in competitions. However, Tesla itself has no plans to officially sponsor or endorse a racing series, and the company remains focused on ramping up production and delivering cars to about 1,000 customers who have not yet taken delivery." So, it may or may not happen and if it does, the car owners are apparently on their own.
