Great question. As with the majority of racetracks in the country, there is no fast charging capability onsite at Sonoma. However, we do have some great news to share! We are working with Sonoma track management to provide maintenance charging for up to 40 cars, with a potential for more charging stations to be added. Please stay tuned as these details become available. While we would love to be able to provide onsite charging for participants and spectators alike, these chargers will be available only as a priority service for participants (not including car show). Autocross and drag racers will be using those when they are off-track in order to make sure their batteries stay topped off. Please read below to learn more about the charging infrastructure we’ll have available for participants at High Voltage Experience.
Onsite charging at High Voltage Experience will be a controlled service. Track staff will be triaging participants, ensuring that those who need the charge will be able to utilize these services throughout the weekend. Each of the NASCAR garage bays will be supplied with a NEMA 14-50 receptacle to accommodate most vehicle chargers on the market and each will charge at a minimum of 35 amps.
Our recommendation to participants is to ensure they arrive in the Sonoma area with enough charge and make sure to top off at a charging station prior to arrival on Saturday morning.
For those with Teslas, Sonoma is within close proximity to three Tesla Supercharger installations. We’ve provided the address and location and estimated travel times for each of those locations for convenience below. There are many other chargers in the area, but we have highlighted the three that are closest to the track. Please use your Tesla screen to dial other available chargers that may be of use during your stay in the area.
For those with non-Teslas, other charging stations are located throughout the area. Please reference Plugshare.com or your favorite charging app on your mobile phone to source charging as needed.
