Elio Motors Tour goes to Sonoma Raceway

Elio Motors Tour goes to Sonoma Raceway


Hello Elio’ers!  After Elio Motors’ quick stop in Las Vegas for the National Clean Energy Summit with keynote speaker President Barack Obama, the team headed to California for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma – Indy Car Series.  Raceway events are new to the tour this year and we have been very happy with the results.  It’s a great way to get the attention of ‘car-lovers’ as there is no shortage of them at the raceway.  The attendance varies over the course of the weekend from anywhere between 25,000 to over 200,000 people!  A huge chunk of them stop in their tracks at the sight of our our affordable cost, high-mileage, bright Creamsicle vehicle.  Some even come to the raceway for the sole reason to experience the prototype first hand.

We met Gerald M. over the weekend. He was reading through a newspaper article about yours truly a little while back and made a reservation immediately without even telling his wife.  Thankfully she was quickly on board too as judging by his enthusiasm, it doesn’t look like she would have had much choice!




The Elio Tour Team was just as enthusiastic to be there. After all, California is home to our largest reservation holder base (1,300+) and even some tour team members.




After the event the Tour Team made our way down the coast for LDW. Labor Day is of course one of our favorite holidays. Fittingly, since we will be American-made and it is a celebration of the American labor movement dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. We couldn’t be more excited to spend the holiday weekend this year in Sausalito for their coveted Art Festival. SF Gate, a blog in the San Francisco area, touches on our visit.
