The 2013 Refuel event, held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterrey County, California is now several months in the past, but this extended-length video of a Tesla Model S lapping the famed track wasn't released until recently.

At 48-plus minutes in length, this may well be the longest Tesla Model S-related video we've ever seen (for sure the longest video of the Model S on a track).

What's Refuel?

It's an event that's "open to the new wave of Electric Vehicles (EVs) as well as to electric conversions and purpose-built all-electric race cars. Owners of electric vehicles and motorcycles can participate in open track sessions and compete in the SportElectric Time Trial which is classed for production vehicles, conversions, purpose-builts and prototypes."

Refuel 2013 took place on June 30 at Laguna Seca Raceway.  The field was dominated by Tesla Roadsters, Model S sedans and BMW ActiveEs, though most of today's available EVs were represented (by 1 or 2 participants) on the track.
