We are pleased to share with you all that Great British Sports Cars will be exhibiting again at this years Miatas Reunion at Laguna Seca 2019 in Monterey California , which is taking place 11th – 13th October.  You will find GBS with several Mazda based Zero’s located in the garages on pit road at this legendary race venue and around town during the weekend. Some of the GBS Team will also be there along with Paul Barnes who is our USA representative.

Miatas at Laguna Seca is an annual event for all things Miata with hundreds of cars attending each year.  The event combines hard-core track time with more laid back, friendly gatherings. Given our GBS Zero takes the proven Miata performance to a whole new level we felt it a fitting venue to showcase the Zero to Miata enthusiasts from around north America.

Now in its 10th year at Laguna Seca, the Miata Reunion is an annual celebration of the MX-5 Miata, offering quality track time at an iconic venue for hard-core track enthusiasts, as well as a full plate of off-track activities and social interaction for Miata lovers. Follow us on our social media during the event to see more photographs.

 The GBS Zero is very popular in the USA with several Zero’s now on the road and many that are currently being built as well as several more kits that we are currently preparing to export later this year. We look forward to sharing with you all photos and news during and after the event.
