This blog follows the progress of restoring and converting a 1973 Porsche 914 from stock to full electric drive, with an electric motor and half a ton of batteries. Now that the car is done and in storage while I live overseas, I'm adding descriptions and pictures of each Tesla location I visit.

Circuit Of The Americas
I was in Austin a couple of weeks ago and went to the airport a little early so I could scope out the progress of the new Formula 1 track called Circuit of the Americas. The practice starts November 16, that's only 2 months from now and they are nowhere near ready. I heard that they were still installing things at the new track in India the day before, this one is going to be just as close. Check out these pictures and see what you think. I get emails from them all the time, they really want to sell me some expensive tickets! Bleacher seats for $1749, main grandstand for $3899! I read it will cost $240 just to park there for the 3-day Formula 1 weekend...
