I'm sure their range goes to shit when racing
I did a track day with my low range (ie only ~200 miles max) Model S at Laguna Seca. See the photo - that’s me on the Corkscrew (man... it felt great to hit the line!).

Tesla brought Superchargers to the track, but I actually wasn’t able to use them (they were reserved for people that paid extra...) I had 2 sessions on the track (each was about 4 laps), plus a parade lap. I arrived at the track at about 86-87%, and left with about 40%. I went back to hotel to pick up my wife and daughter, and was able to charge for about an hour (at about 8kW) before heading out. We then hit a Supercharger in Gilroy - one of only 2 times I’ve had to wait for a Supercharger (a whopping 5 min...)

I'm curious what they charged to. 100 I guess.
There's a guy that's run a 3 in both morning and afternoon sessions at FedEX (4 runs each) and plugged into the Tesla Supercharger in the adjacent lot in between.

For a single driver at a Pro, up to 22 (I think) runs over the course of the two day event with a potential total of maybe 550 seconds at full throttle (realistically, probably no more than half that). At a Tour format, 6 runs per event with a potential combined total of 270 seconds at full throttle (realistically, probably no more than half that).

All my totally unbiased, fair, and completely sane criticisms of Tesla aside, that doesn't seem like it should be a problem.
