The Tesla Model S Plaid came in 15th in the Climb to the Clouds race up Mt. Washington’s Auto Road. The best time of its two runs was 7:05, about 1:31 slower than the winner, which was a record set in a Subaru WRX which had been tweaked to have 862 (!!!!) horsepower.

The Tesla did come in first in its class. But it was the only one in its class – “stock electric.”

I suspect that class will get more crowded in future years.
