LONG BEACH, Calif., March 15, 2015— RUSH X, an annual Experience and Expo for Tesla users, to host owners and enthusiasts of Tesla electric cars from across Southern California in the seaside city on April 4, 2015.
RUSH X, produced by the Tesla Club Los Angeles (independent from Tesla Motors, Inc.), has joined Formula E ePrix for an exciting event at the home of the Long Beach Grand Prix. This event is a unique opportunity for Tesla owners and enthusiasts to celebrate together in an EV-friendly atmosphere. Attendees will enjoy an exclusive prime race viewing location VIP hospitality tent, exhibitors, speakers, entertainment, food and beverages, special guest appearances, and the company of hundreds of other Tesla owners and enthusiasts at the EV races.
Nancy Cartwright, enthusiastic Tesla owner, voice of Bart on The Simpsons, and 11-year honorary mayor of the North San Fernando Valley, will emcee the event. Joining Ms. Cartwright will be Rich Rutherford, enthusiastic Tesla owner, renowned stunt car driver and drifter, and veteran of the Long Beach Grand Prix who will enlighten attendees with tips to gain more from their Tesla driving experience. Frank van Gilluwe, author of the Tesla Owners Manual entitled Tesla Model S – Best Car Ever! and creator of Tesla Tap, will discuss the pros and cons of various Tesla modifications.
“First and foremost, we are Tesla fans. The overriding goal of the event is to celebrate this exceptional car. It also provides Tesla owners with a forum to meet and share the latest ‘how-to’ information they crave and enjoy,” said event producer and volunteer organizer, Renee Swenson. “The heart of the Tesla community is the user and enthusiast. They are passionate about Tesla; they can’t get enough information about the company or the car,” said Swenson, a Tesla owner since 2006 and professional event planner for Fortune 500 companies.
RUSH X is named for the exhilaration or rush that users experience from the impressive acceleration of a Tesla. “RUSH X provides an opportunity for attendees to network with fellow Teslaficinados and share their passion and knowledge with those who are new to electric transportation. Together with Formula E, it’s the ultimate user experience.”
Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world’s first fully electric racing series. Formula E aims to represent a vision for the future of the motor industry, serving as a framework for R&D around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting clean energy and sustainability.
“Formula E embodies the key attributes of Tesla that users relish: lightning-fast cars, electric vehicle technology, green energy, and great entertainment. It is a natural fit for our annual event. We encourage all Tesla fans – from early adopters to future Tesla owners – to attend. There will be something for everyone.”
