This Stop – Charlotte Motor Speedway!
Hello Elio’ers! The tour team spent Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coca-Cola 600. Over the three day event, there were a ton of racing enthusiasts in attendance. Below is the view from the Fan Zone, where the Elio was displayed.
Elio’s size specifications were tested…
She didn’t fit.
And as usual, we met some great futureliowners…
Talk about enthusiasm! Robyn and Steven from Crossville, TN jumped in line last May of 2014 ( #4530 ) and arrived in Charlotte in true NASCAR fashion….fast! They found the inside track to the Elio booth in the Fan Zone and were one of the first to arrive.
Both retired, they drove over 300 miles just to see the Elio. They first learned of Elio Motors from a friend who read a magazine article and suggested they check it out because it seemed to be exactly what they were looking for. Their friend made a reservation to get in line right away, but Robyn and Steven upped the ante and made a $1,000 “All In” reservation to get an official Spot in Line (SIL) which put them ahead of their friend.
Previously they owned a Stallion (custom made trike) because they both appreciate uniquely styled vehicle designs. Robyn admits she’s not a “motorcycle girl” as she doesn’t enjoy the wind, being cold, getting wet, or having to monitor what other drivers are doing (or not doing). So the Elio was perfect for Robyn because it had the “looks” but has “all the comforts of a car.”
If you live anywhere near Crossville and see a Sour Apple (green) Elio zipping around town, you’ll know who it is.
