Last weekend (11th – 13th October) the Zero’s were at Laguna Seca raceway home of the famous “Corkscrew” complex of corners for the Miatas Reunion at Laguna Seca 2019.
We had several Mazda based customer GBS Zero’s on display and were located on the pit road at the legendary race venue and around town during the weekend. Richard and Anthony were 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. It’s the last year the event will be held at Laguna Seca, next years event location is yet to be published.
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. On the way to the Laguna Seca, Richard, Anthony and Paul called in to see Frank a GBS Customer in LA who has very nearly completed his build. His 1.8 Miata based Zero is now road registered and he is just making the finishing touches to it before wrapping the car in his chosen colour scheme, he is yet to let on what this is.
Once the Miata’s Reunion had come to an end we took the Zero down a 130 mile section of the famous Pacific Highway 1 from Monterey to San Luis Obispo. This is the first time a Zero has been down this iconic cliff hugging coastal road often referred to as the PCH.
It was great to meet so many USA Customers and hear how their builds are going and to meet many new customers some of who are taking delivery of their Zero kits later this year, we would like to thank Paul for all is help in arranging the event and making it happen for us and also GBS Customers Dan and Marlin for joining us and having their Zero’s on display over the weekend.
Here are some photographs from the trip and more can be seen on our GBS Instagram page @gbs_cars.
