    Join us on August 25 at 6:00 pm for a Virtual Meetup to chat with club member Pete Borras, Master Detailer and Paint Correction Specialist, about taking care of your Tesla.

    In December 2012, Tesla delivered my Signature Model S to my home, as was the practice back in those early days. That weekend day we had a delivery party, and I showed off the brand new Tesla to my friends, family, and some of our original club members. The car had that gorgeous, limited-edition Signature Red paint, and I thought it looked pretty darn good straight from the factory.

    Later in August 2013, I learned that Pete Borras, a Master Detailer and Paint Correction Specialist, had opened a studio in Sarasota where I live. So, I figured that since I’d never paid so much for a car that it would be wise if I had a professional put some protection on it.

    That was when Pete worked his magic. He did a little paint correction, applied a permanent ceramic coating, and paint armor.  I didn’t think it was possible, but even after 9 months of wear and tear, the car clearly looked much better than when it was new from the factory.

    Fast forward eight years, and now Pete still has a Sarasota studio, First Impression Premier Auto Detail, and also The TEZLA Studio in Tampa less than a mile from the Tesla Tampa Service Center.  So, if you have questions about how to care for your car, or add custom touches, this would be a perfect opportunity to get tips from an expert and fellow club member.

    Note:

    If you are interested in participating in this video conference, you will need a laptop with a camera, an iPad, or a tablet with a camera to view the images. A Smartphone will also probably work.

    After you register, you will receive an automated message with the link to the video conference.

    Join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts for a special day at the Daytona International Speedway. You don’t need to be a Race Fan to enjoy the World’s Most Famous Racing Complex.  It is a wonderful experience to visit and see from inside out.

    Speedway Tour: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

    At the Speedway, our Tesla Group will experience the 1-hour Speedway Tour. Payment for tickets must be made in advance online when you register.  You will be provided admission tickets at the event.

    We are currently reviewing COVID-19 protocols with the Daytona Speedway representatives.  The tour will involve a tram ride and the following safety Speedway protocols:

    For the safety of our guests and employees we will take a modified tour route and adhere to new protocols and procedures. We are working with Florida health and government officials to ensure our tours provide a safe experience for all guests in attendance. Amended safety protocols and procedures will be in effect that include: 

    • Strict adherence to the CDC-recommended 6’ social distancing will be mandated onsite
    • All guests (age 3 and up) will be required to bring and wear mandatory face covering
    • Each guest will be screened prior to entering DIS Tickets & Tours Building; initial screening will include questions regarding current health status and potential exposure, as well as a non-contact temperature check            
    • Our staff, clearly identified for guests, will be cleaning or disinfecting high-touched areas throughout the day

    Speedway Tour Summary

    Climb aboard one of our open-air trams and you will be transported into a world unto itself: the "World Center of Racing." As you enter the "World Center of Racing", a flurry of action, color and grandeur will explode before your eyes and you’ll know that you’re on hallowed ground.

    Experience the 31-degree high banks for yourself as the tram coasts along turns 3 and 4 before finding yourself walking in the footsteps of legends past and present as you climb atop the podium in Gatorade Victory Lane* for a photo.

    End this hour-long Speedway Tour by standing next to the car of this year’s DAYTONA 500 champion, left in the same condition as the day it captured the checkered flag.

    Following your tour, fans can now access the new Motorsports Hall of Fame of America that is now housed in the DIS Ticket and Tours Building, showcasing spectacular displays honoring all forms of motorsports: Stock Cars, Sports Cars, Open-Wheel, Motorcycles, Drag Racing, Land Speed Records, Powerboating and Aviation.

    Memories of a lifetime await you here at Daytona International Speedway.
