Busy with Zero kit collections….

Robert Cramb collecting his Zero Kit

Last week we had Robert Cramb come back to the GBS Factory and collect his new Zero Ford based kit, we look forward to following Roberts build progress and sharing with you all. Its also another busy month for Zero kit collections with lots scheduled for collection this month, including one that we are exporting to Australia very soon as we just in the final stages of confirming the shipping.

We also have this GBS Zero LHD International Spec Mazda/Miata kit with several extras that is all packed and boxed ready for immediate shipment. This is a rare opportunity that we have this kind of spec kit available to be dispatched straight away as current lead time is usually 8 to 10 weeks plus paint is extra time. If you are interested in this and would like more details please contact us, we look forward to hearing from you.

Busy Bank Holiday weekend for the GBS Team...

It was a busy Bank Holiday weekend for some of the GBS Team as this weekend was The Stoneleigh Kit Car Show where the Zero’s were on display. Like previous years we had a joint stand between GBS & Kit Spares where a full range of parts and spares were on display and a range of ATR Products including many new products that have recently been released.

 We had a very busy 2 days with the GBS Zero’s attracting a lot of attention particularly on the Sunday which we found to be the busiest day, on display was two Zero’s, we had the new Zero Race chassis which is FIA approved along with a recent Zero Factory Build that the owner kindly let us have on display for the weekend that is fitted with a Ford 2.5 Duratec engine, ATR Throttle Bodies and the new ATR Brake set up.

Kit Spares also had a full range of parts and spares on display and had a very busy weekend, the GBS Clothing went down very well and is now available online along with a full range of parts and spares, please visit for more details.

As well as our stand inside the Hall 2, we also had a GBS Owners Club area that was located outside and over the weekend was very busy and saw lots of nice Zero’s parked there together over the weekend. (Please see a slide show of a selection of photographs from the weekend)

We would like to thank everyone who visited our stand over the weekend and we are now looking forward to our next event on the calendar which is our GBS Summer Cars & Coffee event which is happening on Saturday 8th June at the GBS Factory, let us know if you will be joining us so we know how many cakes to make!
