Amazing weekend at GBS… Busy GBS Cars and Coffee event…

Great Weather, Cars and Cake, big thank you to everyone who joined us.…….They just get better and better each time we hold our GBS Cars & Coffee events, and what a fantastic day we had on Saturday with a car park full of sports cars. We would like to say a big THANK YOU to you all for joining us and helping us make it such a great event and enjoyable day, it was nice to see so many Zero’s together in the car park along with a wide variety of other sports cars. It was nice to see several new Zero’s that were newly registered also join us for the first time. The gates opened at 10am and by 10.20am the car park was already getting full, the weather was perfect and could not have been better for us.

The GBS and Kit Spares show room was very busy with people and the Kit Spares   was also very busy with sales and enquires. As usual the cakes attracted a lot of attention and certainly went down well with not many left along with the unlimited supply of tea and coffee. We would also like to thank Powerlite Units for supporting our event and supplying some lovely cakes, we now have a full range of Powerlite Units products on our Kit Spares Website and in our showroom. Please visit our parts website for more details www.kitspares.co.uk

 Another great thing about our GBS Cars & Coffee events that we love, is that we are able to raise money for our 2 chosen charities which are the Cancer Research UK and The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, we all feel and hope you agree that The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a fantastic service and has helped & will continue to help many people, as well as the Cancer Research UK that is again a fantastic charity that makes a big difference to so many people and their families. We will let you know how much money we have raised.

 The GBS Camera was out capturing the day and all the action, please see a few photographs from the day and more can be seen on our GBS Facebook page later this week. We will be announcing our next GBS Cars & Coffee event date very soon which will be happening in December.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Cars & Coffee event at the weekend…

The GBS Cars & Coffee events that we hold at the GBS Factory were created in 2016 and have since been a massive success & we have decided to continue to hold the events again and again throughout the year. On Saturday saw the second Cars & Coffee event of 2019 and we would like to say a big THANK YOU to you all for joining us, it was a shame about the rain but still a great turnout.

The GBS workshop, Kit Spares show room was very busy and the Kit Spares shop was also busy with enquires and orders. As usual the great selection of cakes attracted a lot of attention and certainly went down well along with the unlimited supply of tea and coffee. The other thing about our GBS Cars & Coffee event that we love, is that we are able to raise money for our 2 chosen charities which are the Cancer Research UK and The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, we all feel and hope you agree that The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is a fantastic service and has helped & will continue to help many people, as well as the Cancer Research UK that is again a fantastic charity that makes a big difference to so many people and their families. We thank you all for your generous donations, so far from our GBS Events we are delighted to have raised £1,935.39.

GBS Zero kit is now on the way to Australia…

Last week we had a Zero kit collected that is now on the way to its new owner in Australia, it is scheduled to be delivered to Steve in Australia on 11th July so we will keep tracking its progress and let you know when it arrives and look forward to following the build. The Zero kit dispatch area is very busy with Zero chassis waiting to be collected and another is currently now being prepared for export that will be going to USA very soon.

Last week we also welcomed back GBS Customer Mick Menzie to the GBS Factory to the collect his Zero GT Mazda Starter kit. The workshop is also busy with several Zero chassis’s having factory fittings done before collection.

The Zero has many optional extras and upgrades and a Painted Zero is now a very popular option and we do a lot of them for customers before their Zero kit is collected / delivered. We recently painted GBS Customer Paul Holmes GBS Zero a stunning orange with black stripe, it looked fantastic and we look forward to seeing the finished the car. See some of the Zero options & upgrades on our personalisation page.

You may have noticed on our new website the GBS Gallery in which there is a Customer Gallery section which we would love to grow and include your Zero’s, we have already received a few photos from some of you which we will be adding shortly. But if you have any that you would like to share with us then please send them to us for the chance to appear on GBS Customer Gallery Page.

Also don’t forget to let us know if you are coming in your Zero this weekend (Saturday 8th June) to our GBS Cars & Coffee event, the GBS Cameras will be out capturing the event, more details can be found on our event page.
