Tesla drivers going to Laguna Seca Raceway in California will no longer have to visit the Superchargers in nearby Monterey as the track now has its very own station.

Last year Drive Tesla first reported the racetrack was getting its own Superchargers after a permit was filed with Monterey County in September 2021.

Progress was slow as the Superchargers only arrived at Laguna Seca in June, with Tesla using their own electric Semi truck to deliver the 8 prefabricated Superchargers.

After a longer than expected wait the 8-stall V3 Supercharger was turned last night. The first Tesla plugging was none other than the Model S Plaid known as Dark Helmet from Unplugged Performance.

The new Supercharger is located in a prime location right by the pit lane, in the same area where Tesla has previously brought in temporary Superchargers to get racers back on the track as quickly as possible.

The Superchargers will be getting some use quickly as Dark Helmet will be participating in the NASA National Championships this weekend.

Showing their support for racing in California, this isn’t the only racetrack Supercharger in the Golden State.

Buttonwillow also has its own 16-stall V3 Supercharger located next to the new second track.
