Come join us as Rafael de Mestre stops in Portland on his latest EV drive around the world in his Tesla Roadster.

You think you have experienced range anxiety? Try traveling around the world in an EV! It took 127 days for Rafael to drive it in a Tesla Roadster in 2012. In 2016 he did it again in a Tesla Model S. Some of his accomplishments include: 

  • Winning the first EV race around the world in a STANDARD all-electric vehicle
  • Being the first man to drive ALONE around the world in an electric car
  • Making the FASTEST electric vehicle circumnavigation around the world ever (127 days)
  • Making the LONGEST drive in a standard electric car (17,574 miles).
This latest trip started in Hamburg, Germany. The Tesla Roadster was transported emission free over the Atlantic Ocean and the drive resumed from Ft. Lauderdale on July 4th. Along the way he has been stopping to meet with Tesla and EV groups and champion EV adoption.

Come here Raphael share his travel insights and discuss opportunities for EV owners in the coming year. He and his team are experts in roadtrip planning and finding places to charge. We're sure to hear some interesting stories and learn some great travel tips. 

If you can't attend in person, our friend and host of My Tesla Weekend, Brain White will be on hand and hosting a live-stream of Rafaels presentation on his You Tube Channel. Watch for that at
