TOCA NSW warmly invites all TOCA members for an electrifying evening with world-renowned rally driver, Mr. Rafael de Mestre.


Inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel, "Around the World in 80 Days," Rafael will share his electrifying journey, while also making history by circumnavigating the world in his EVs: Tesla Roadster (2012), Tesla Model S (2016), and Tesla Roadster (2024).




Prepare to be captivated by first-hand accounts of Rafael's remarkable adventures, challenges, triumphs, and ground-breaking innovations encountered along the way.


This is an event not to be missed. Secure your spot NOW!





Hear Rafael talk about leaving the urban jungle for the deserts of Kazakhstan, meeting new people, not speaking their language, and leaving range anxiety far behind! In doing so, he shows how the world opens up in unimaginable ways when you travel abroad, hyper-charged by an EV. Also, learn how driving EVs can accelerate the world to sustainable energy, combat pollution and even prevent global conflicts.


Don't miss your chance to meet Rafael before he zooms off on March 10th to continue his epic journey - his Roadster has just landed in China, after travelling across the Atlantic Ocean in a carbon-neutral sailing ship, highlighting his commitment to eco-friendly travel.
