TeslaCorsa 24 at Salzburgring returned for a second consecutive year, attended by the UP Germany development Model 3 car in TÜV registered street legal tune
Another successful TeslaCorsa event is behind us. Drivers drove from all over Europe to experience the special Tesla exclusive only track day event. We saw drivers represented both locally, from Austria, but also, from Sweden, Germany & the Czech Republic. We drove our Nurburgring development Model 3 with our UP x Ohlins TTX 4 way race coilovers for over 10 hours down from Germany to Salzburg, Austria, for the event.
Event racing instructor Martin Rennhofer was given the opportunity to test out the UP Germany development car in TÜV registered street legal tune. Martin has experience tracking his Model 3 Performance which utilizes another brand of coilovers as well as Tesla’s track package which includes Michelin Cup 2 tires. In Martin’s limited time test driving the UP Nurburgring development Model 3, he was able to shave an astounding 9 seconds from his car’s fastest lap by utilizing the higher-performance UP suspension and braking. This is despite the German car utilizing a conservative street alignment and 20-inch wheels with 245-wide street-legal tires.
The event had challenging weather starting with rain and thankfully the sun came out to allow for a few dry laps as the day progressed. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly with the local Salzburgring sheep enjoying the silent racing of Teslas. A group of owners from Sweden led by UP dealer Hamphi drove multiple days to reach the event and when the event concluded they headed back home to Sweden. Ben from Unplugged Performance hosted the event has come from a UP Plaid track event in the Philippines and then left to attend a UP x Taisan Model 3 wheel-to-wheel race in Tokyo at the Tsukuba circuit.
