David and 12 Year Old Son To Enter Guinness World Records For their Tesla Run

A world record has been set and it includes a father, a son and a Tesla Model S. David Metcalf and his 12 year old son Adam became the first people to drive a Tesla Model S over 400 miles on a single charge.

The Model S did this tremendous drive without any modifications. All the passengers did was drive with the AC off with the windows cracked a few inches and drive only on flat rural roads with the tires inflated to a higher than standard pressure. Hmm, well that was thoroughly thought out.

In light of this father and son’s great accomplishment, George Blankenship, Tesla’s Vice President, gave them a call and Elon Musk posted a tweet congratulating them.  Though Guinness has also approved the attempt they will need 4 to 6 weeks to review the evidence before making it an official record.

Congratulations David and Adam. Hopefully all goes well with Guinness and you can really be noticed for your effort, not just given 2 phone call.
