GBS Zero's on display and out on the track in America...

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.

GBS exhibit at LCV at Millbrook with the Electric Zero.....


GBS were exhibiting at LCV at Millbrook (Low carbon vehicle event) last week with a GBS Zero demonstrating a novel concept battery and EV platform and disseminating the successful completion of a composite and titanium project.

The GBS concept EV platform: The chassis is bespoke to allow for the concept EV powertrain. In the front of the vehicle the battery has replaced the standard engine as the energy source and the original fuel cell is replaced with the powertrain. GBS have machined intricate prototype parts to allow the E drive system to be mounted as a compact unit within in the vehicle.
The powered electronics have been developed in partnership with Rockfort Engineering who are heavily involved with Formula E. The project was to develop a novel cooling concept and the project vehicle will be used to create duty cycles to further develop this technology. The vehicle has a limited range as it was designed for high load discharge to generate heat and monitor the cooling data.

Prototype Carbon fibre barrels by GBS and Titanium centres designed and manufactured by AJE.
The vehicle has carbon fibre wheels with titanium wheel centres to reduce the un-sprung weight of the rotating mass. GBS have manufactured the inner and outer barrels of the wheels as part of a collaboration. The project was to extract learning form the Ti process by completing this project GBS has greater understanding of an internal composite process that GBS are developing for the future.

We are now busy preparing for this weekends event which is the Goodwood Revival (13th-15th September), where we will be having our new Zero demonstrator on display. We can be found over the road on stand 381. Visit our event page where you will see more details.

Father and Son to enjoy the Zero Build project together....

GBS Customers Jerry & Matt Haller (Father & Son) visited our stand at the Autosports Show earlier this year in January at the NEC in Birmingham where they first saw the Zero’s on display on our stand. They then came to see us at the factory and enjoyed a factory tour, meeting all the team, seeing all the behind the scenes of what we do….. They went away with plenty of ideas and options, as well as both enjoying a test drive in our demonstrator. A few weeks later we got a email to say they have decided on their Zero spec and were ready to place their order, so they came up to the factory on a Saturday and confirmed the spec and options of their kit and payed the deposit. Then last week their stunning painted Zero arrived back at the factory and we had the opportunity to take a few photographs of it before it was delivered to them the next day. 

This is going to be a project for a Father and Son who are going to enjoy together, we look forward to following their build and seeing it progress and sharing photos with you all.

We have lots of Zero self build kits currently being prepared for collection over the few weeks as well as some that are soon to be exported. We are also expecting our new demonstrator to arrive back from the paint shop later this week, so keep a look out on our social media to see more about that!

Another GBS Zero in America & one arrives in Australia…

AA_01.jpg

The Zero range is available in both RHD & LHD and is sold worldwide, we had a Zero kit collected a few weeks ago that will soon be arriving with our new customer in Canada. We are also pleased to hear that the Zero Race kit we sent to New York a few weeks ago got there last week. As did this Zero kit that we sent to Australia a several weeks ago, we now look forward to receiving photos of these Zero builds and following how they progress around the world and sharing with you.

A few weekends back at the factory we had Bruce Coupe come and collect his Zero kit from us, Bruce’s Zero chassis had to be modified to suit his engine choice which was a Kawasaki GTR 1400 motorbike engine. This was no problem for us as we design and manufacturer the Zero chassis in house, we have full control over modifications and developments. So if you are looking for something different or have any questions about what is possible then please get in touch with us, we look forward to hearing from you. Or please click here for more details on the engine options that are available for the Zero range.

We are also looking forward to sharing photographs of our new Generation 2 Zero demonstrator with you hopefully later this week as it is due back from paint very soon! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, as it might be shared on there sooner! @gbs_cars


The NEW Second Generation Zero Chassis & New GBS Demonstrator….

The new Second Generation Zero chassis has had a very positive response since it was launched a few months ago and the improvements have been noticed. We have created a short video that walks around and talks about the NEW Second Generation Zero Sports Car.

We are also pleased and very excited to be having a new Zero demonstrator very soon. After 12 hard months of development work, our test vehicle is undergoing a transformation to become the new Gen 2 Zero demonstrator. Fitted with all the latest components from GBS and ATR Products and powered by the amazing Ford 2.5L Duratec, this is going to be something special. Keep an eye out for the final result in the next few weeks, we will be sending it off to be painted very soon!

We all love the customer’s choice of colour, and we can't wait to see more photos as the build progresses over the next few months, which is being delivered to its new owners who are a Father and Son next week. Another Zero that also arrived back from our paint shop earlier this week is now in our workshop in its build bay for the rest of the build to be completed.

From Nottingham to New York….Zero Race kit on the way to New York….

A few weeks ago we had a Zero Race kit collected that is now on the way to a customer in New York, USA where it will be delivered in the few weeks.

We are not at Goodwood Festival Speed this weekend, but we are pleased to confirm we can be seen at Goodwood Revival later this year with the Zero’s. Please visit our event page to see more details about the Goodwood Revival event and other events that we have planned for 2019.

Last month you may have seen that we had GBS Customer Peter Cartwright’s Zero back with us in the workshop for the ATR Products Brake Upgrade fitment. Peter competes with his 2.5 Duratec powered Zero in Sprints and does several Track Days a year. Peter’s first event since he had the new upgrade fitted was a few weekends ago at Lydden Hill and it was great to hear that it was a success and enjoyable.

Peter Said “Quite a short circuit (just over 1m I think) and each timed run just short of two laps (ie from leave pit lane to re-enter pit lane).

The entry list was not large meaning there was time for 6 runs – or 7 in my case with a re-run for being baulked right at the end of one run. So with 14 laps, a decent number to assess the car. My conclusion was that is definitely better as currently set up.
Overall, Lydden was my best outing yet and I drove back with a big smile on my face!  
Next date at Snetterton in July with the Lotus 7 club”.

We hope to see more race photographs from Peter’s day at Lydden once they are released.

The new ATR Products Brake upgrade is now very popular with many Zero’s now have it fitted. You can see more details and images on the Brake upgrade options on our parts website Kit Spares www.kitspares.co.uk or to book your Zero or sports car in our Workshop please visit our workshop services page.
