FANTASTIC TRACK DAY AT ROCKINGHAM WITH THE GBS ZERO’S…..

On Sunday (4th September) a lot of the GBS Team were at Rockingham for our track day where we were joined by customers in their Zero’s and many that came to spectate and enjoy a passenger ride. It was a fantastic day enjoyed by everyone.

It was an early start for us all with the briefing at 8.30am, Siting laps at 9am and track going live at 9.30am. We did 2 sighting laps in the Zero Mazda it was a great circuit with some great corners and straights, we had the GBS Cameras with us so we will share some video footage with you shortly.

We were joined by Father and Son Ian & Dominic Wills in their GBS Zero (Zero Ford) you may have seen Ian and Dominic at many of our other track days as this was their 4th one they have done with us since they completed their Zero build. They have now done track days at Blyton Park, Silverstone and now Rockingham. They had a fantastic day and did 132 miles on the track and a little clip with a tyre wall in the afternoon – Nothing too serious and not much damage to the Zero, it didn’t stop them from enjoying the rest of the day in their Zero.

Sam Evans also booked on to join us in his Zero Race that is fitted with a Honda S200 engine that has now been Super charged and produces 570bhp. I was lucky enough to have  passenger ride with Sam in the afternoon and I can say that I have never so fast in a GBS Zero before. The power that it produces is amazing and it holds the track incredibly well, even pulling out the pits onto the circuit I could feel the power, we soon passed every car that was in front of us. I went out in a Zero Race at Blyton Park a few years ago that was fitted with a Ford  Cosworth engine and that was fast, but this was even faster I would like to thank Sam for the passenger ride that was awesome!

Anthony who is our designer at GBS that many of you may now know who has been with us since January also joined us on the track day in his own Honda Integra Type R which performed well and attracted a lot of attention along with his friend who also joined us in his Honda Civic EK9 Type R Turbo. Anthony was also out on the track in our GBS Zero Mazda demonstrator doing passenger rides. The Zero Mazda demonstrator that was doing nonstop passenger rides throughout the day. We all had a fantastic day and would like to thank you all for joining us. We are currently trying to look at booking one more track day for this year, so once we confirm everything we will let you know.
