Tesla Corsa is back for its third Tesla-only racetrack experience on Sunday, March 31 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in California. Having completed two successful track events this past January and October, the Tesla Corsa seems to fill a few remaining open slots that would give Tesla owners the chance to experience the all-electric functionality benefits of their vehicles in a safe, controlled environment.

Tesla owners seeking to have some fun on the track will be matched with driving experience and also by their vehicle’s power and handling characteristics. The event encourages Roadster, Model S, Model X, and Model 3 owners to fully enjoy the unique track experience while providing a feeling of community and platform for exchanging tips and techniques.

“This is a situation where it’s much easier for drivers from a safety standpoint, but also a lot easier for drivers to learn from each other, compare notes, and improve their driving,” Unplugged Performance Co-Founder Avi Fisher informed Teslarati. Unplugged is Tesla Corsa’s sponsor and organizer.

Tesla owners are usually conscious of the great performance specs their vehicles offer but lack the chance to fully experience them, thus missing out on numerous opportunities the ownership experience can bring. Even highway speeds can’t legally and safely provide a venue for a Model S Performance to unleash Ludicrous Mode’s greatest possible, for example. Similarly, Tesla’s Track Mode maximizes their electrical cars’ performance and managing so drivers can push the limits of the vehicles at the same sorts of environments offered by Tesla Corsa.

The experience of pushing a Tesla to high-performance levels on the track has the additional potential benefit of delivering a driving skill set that enhances overall safety, something Fisher was sure to mention to us.

“For anyone, the chance to explore the car in a safe environment is incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. It’s an entire facet of your Tesla that many never get to experience…A natural byproduct of this is that if you’re ever in an emergency avoidance type of situation your ability to control your car under adverse conditions is considerably enhanced. ”

Anyone wanting to simply be a spectator during the Tesla Corsa occasion is also welcome with no fee required besides the $10 gate fee, something that also applies to drivers to gain access to Buttonwillow’s monitor.

“Like any Tesla-owner occasion, there is a great chance to network. In the case of the final occasion, it was especially cool for attendees since Tesla sent lots of their own staff there to interact with and interview Tesla owners. There were also plenty of SpaceX people there running their own cars or hanging out,” Fisher detailed. He also told us that Tesla Corsa has a personal Facebook group for attendees where lots of daily discussion takes place.

A racetrack occasion like Tesla Corsa’s involves plenty of memory making, and that’s also been factored into the whole experience. As part of the participation fee, drivers are given access to everything produced by the professional photographers and videographers present on behalf of Tesla Corsa, both on and off track. Fisher explained to us that Tesla Corsa purchases the photos and videos produced and provides attendees full rights to them.

The long term plans for Tesla Corsa’s organizers would be to bring its racetrack events to Tesla drivers and enthusiasts worldwide and potentially get Tesla in on the action for a sponsor.
