Factory Tour at GBS & Chelsea Football Team sign Zero photo....

We get a lot of enquires for Factory Tours for owners clubs and sports car clubs all over the country, we offer a few Factory Tour dates throughout the year including weekends and evenings. We were recently pleased to welcome the Austin 7 Owners Club to the GBS factory for a  tour with Richard which took place on a Saturday morning. The morning generally starts with tea and biscuits in the GBS Show room then onto the GBS Workshop, Design & Development Room, Machine & Engineering, Clean Room, Kit Spares Store and then back into the showroom for more tea and biscuits, questions and often a test drive in one of our Zero demonstrators.

This Zero was last seen on our stand at Stoneleigh Kit Car last month and was delivered back to the owner shortly after, whilst it was with us we had the opportunity for a photo shoot which you can see below.

We also had a gift for the owner who is a big Chelsea football fan, we had a photograph that we took of his Zero at Silverstone last year signed by the Chelsea Football Team. Keith had the opportunity to personally meet the football team in Germany before and after a game along with Yokohama who we would like to thank for making this happen. We presented the signed photo framed to the customer who was delighted.

This stunning Zero is powered by a 2.5 Duratec engine with ATR Throttle Bodies will be doing its first track day with us at Blyton Park on Sunday 23rd June. We look forward to sharing more news on how it performs and photographs form the day. The Track Day is now fully booked, but there is a reserve list please click here for more details.

GBS Zero Race Car being enjoyed & GBS Workshop is busy…..

It nice to have this Zero back in our workshop for a  few days, its now currently having the ATR Products Brake upgrade kit fitted. The owner Peter Cartwright competes with his 2.5 Duratec powered Zero in Sprints and does several Track Days a year! The new ATR Products Brake upgrade is 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

GBS Customer Jon Barratt recently sent us some photos from when he raced at Silverstone International a couple of weeks ago in the Mag Sevens series. He said “Unfortunately, didn't finish the first 40 minute race due to a snapped throttle cable but did well in the second 15 minute sprint gaining six places from the start taking me to 2nd in class”. Jon is also hoping to join us next month on our GBS Track Day at Blyton Park on Sunday 23rd June, click here for more details.

Another GBS customer also collected his sports car from us this week which wasn’t a Zero, Chris Morrison collected his Liege Sports trials car that we completed and prepared and presented to IVA. Chris is now awaiting the registration and hopes to join us in at our GBS Cars & Coffee event which is happening on Saturday 8th June.
