This virtual meetup series full participation seats are originally opened to Tesla Owners Club of Orange County members. About a week before the event, and if we have availability, we invite members of the Tesla Community to join us. So, we're now opening up the invites for full participation seats for folks to join us during this event, instructions at the bottom.

We started this series a few weeks ago and

Here's the YouTube recording of

Meet rEVolutionaries #1: Eli Burton, Adventures of Starman -
.
Meet rEVolutionaries #2: Kyle Field, Senior Editor, CleanTechnica. Tesla Solar Roof and PowerWall2, an Owners' Perspective -

So, on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at 10pm CET/9pm PST/4pm EDT/1pm PDT.
Meet rEVolutionaries #3: Alexander Sims; 8 year Tesla Roadster Owner; Formula E Driver, Mahindra Racing; and Zero Carbon World, Chairman. (Alexander Sims - Formula E Racing Driver)

We're glad that @Alexander Sims (Alexander Sims is actually a member of Speak EV) can join us virtually for this event. This would actually be the SECOND Tesla Owners Club of Orange County meetup that Alex would be making as he had previously joined us at our traditional SOCO/Portola Coffee location in Costa Mesa several years ago when he had raced in Long Beach for another of BMW's race teams.

It's only poetic that one of the "slowest" Tesla drivers in the world, me, would be friends with a professional race car driver, but that's just kismet. I got to know Alexander over the years because of sustainability and as a Roadster owner since March 2012 and didn't realize that he was a race car driver until later.

He most recently raced in Formula E for the BMWi Andretti team. [(team - BMW i Andretti Motorsport | FIA Formula E), (Alexander - Alexander Sims | FIA Formula E)] He started the season strong and came in first in the race in Saudi Arabia, of all places. For the series, he finished 13th overall in this season's series that just ended in Berlin. During the time of my initial announcement to the time of this post, Alexander was announced to be the new driver for Mahindra Racing.



Alexander continues to give back to the cause of sustainability as the Chairman of Zero Carbon World, a UK charity that is responsible for a massive deployment of Level 2 destination charging locations. ZCW has been deploying such charge points before Tesla's own Destination Charging Program was launched. (Zero Carbon World).

Join us on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at 1pm PDT/4pm EDT/9pm BST for Meet rEVolutionaries #3.

We use Callbridge.com for our conferencing and for a full participant seat, I will NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN YOU RSVP. So, provide that when you RSVP. (email the club at http://www.octeslaclub.com/)

I will try to stream this live on YouTube as well, but we may not get your questions from that stream. (additionally, the first 2 have been hit or miss, (#1 went off fine, and #2 was recorded and re-posted, the live stream failed after 15 minutes.)

I have the YouTube Live Stream scheduled here -

Thanks and stay healthy!

Thanks to members who joined us this afternoon. Alex and I had fun holding the conversation and talking about Formula E, Racing, Roadsters, etc. The YouTube live link worked! It recorded almost everything except cut off early in Alex's thanks for having him...
