Fantastic 3 days at Goodwood Revival with the Zero….

We had another great year at this years Goodwood Revival with the Zero….. Last weekend (13th-15th September) we were at The Goodwood Revival show with the GBS Zero, it was a fantastic event and a truly amazing show to be at, its one of our favourite events of the year and we always look forward to it! We were situated Over The Road on stand 381, on a slightly different stand location to previous years as the location of all the stands got moved around this year.

We had our new Zero demonstrator on display which attracted a lot of attention over the 3 days along with a sample range of components and engines. We will share more details and the specification of our new Zero Gen 2 Demonstrator with you later this week.

Our stand was busy all weekend and the weather was perfect, we all enjoyed the show and it was fantastic to see all of the racing out on the circuit and up close in the paddock as well as Air Displays, Shopping and much more, as well as catch up with suppliers, customers and friends… We would like to thank everyone that visited our stand.

We are now back at the factory, busy getting ready for our next event that is happening this Saturday (21st September) which is our GBS Cars & Coffee event. Gates open at 10am, let us know you are coming and share with your friends and family, all are welcome in any car!
