Busy workshop…. Is your Zero all set up and ready for the summer?

As many of you know we offer a full range of workshop services for your GBS Zero Sports cars and also other sports cars. We offer a wide range of services from upgrades to Mot’s. The new ATR Products brake upgrade has proven very popular as has the ATR Products Suspension upgrade. Our IVA Service is another popular service and we always have several sports cars in the workshop that are here for the IVA Service that we offer. We are able to prepare and present your car to IVA along with registration as well, this week we are presenting  two Zero’s to test with one of them passing this morning.

 We have recently seen an increase in customers having Geometry and corner weight set up done on their sports cars, which can make a big difference to both the performance and handling of your sports car.

We currently have a nice Zero in our workshop with us for the IVA Service and is booked to go to test soon. But last week we took it to be Rolling Road tested, if you visit our GBS Instagram you can see a link to a short video clip taken at 3,500 rpm solid state mapping on an Emerald ECU with a new 2.0Zetec on ATR Products Throttle Bodies. It produced 174 bhp with more to come!

 Whether you use your car for weekend drives, occasional Track Days or Motorsport we will be able to offer you something.

Visit our dedicated Workshop services page that includes the IVA Service to see more details of what we can offer, or contact us to discuss getting your car booked in. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Very first Zero in the workshop & something else very exciting…

The GBS Workshop is always busy and if you follow us on Instagram and Facebook you may have already seen some of the nice cars that we have in their currently including something very exciting. We are very excited to be in partnership with Motorsport Tools and are delighted to have this Mk2 Escort now in our workshop that is with us for its 2.5ltr Duratec engine installation and much more.
These will be brand new cars on current registration plates, and we will be developing them to meet the IVA test requirements. The all new Mk2 Escort’s will be based on a group-4 spec bodyshell, powered by a brand new Ford supplied 2.5L Duratec on ATR billet throttle bodies & Life ECU. Mazda 6-speed gearbox, Atlas axle, AP Racing brakes, ATR coilovers etc.
They will be supplied as complete road going cars or in kit form, and can easily be converted to a rally car if required, we look forward to sharing more news on the red prototype Mk2 over the next few months with you all.

We are also pleased to have the very first GBS Zero with us in the GBS workshop this week which has been having the New ATR Products Brake Upgrade fitted. GBS Customer Richard Smith owns the very first GBS Zero that was produced, and we are delighted to have it back in the factory for the popular new ATR Products brake upgrade. The Zero is fitted with a 2L pinto engine on bike carbs and has covered many thousand miles, we also have a collection of photographs of this original Zero when it was first produced over 10 years ago and it looked very different.

You may have seen Richard and his Zero at our events in the past and you will see him this Saturday at our GBS Cars and coffee event at the GBS Factory as he is collecting his Zero. The Mk2 Escort can also be seen this Saturday in our workshop, please visit our GBS Facebook page and event page for more details about our Cars and Coffee event that is happening at the GBS Factory this Saturday (8th June).
