WHAT A FANTASTIC YEAR IT HAS BEEN FOR OUR APPRENTICE…

This time last year saw the start of our new apprentice at the GBS Factory. Last July we were pleased to welcome 17 year old Thomas Slaney to GBS as our new apprentice, Thomas has been based in the GBS engineering department working on our CNC machinery alongside our machinists and designer. Thomas has now completed his first year of studying a Machining & Engineering course at North Notts College where he attended 1 day a week and has done very well with lots of positive feedback and results from his course lecturers. We have been very lucky to have had Thomas as our apprentice and are glad to have him part of the GBS Team, he has had an enjoyable year with us and we look forward to the year(s) ahead and wishing him luck when he goes into his final year of his course in September.

Many of you may have already met Thomas when you have visited the GBS Factory or seen him at one of events at the factory. He will be joining us at our Cars & Coffee event at the GBS Factory in September, which looks like it is going to be another busy event, let us know if you are coming and see more details by visiting our facebook page….

We love to hear that you are all out and about enjoying your Zero’s. We often hear from brothers Andrew and Nick Biddle who recently took part in the Coventry Motofest in their Zero Race, they are out most weekends competing in their Zero across the country. The Covenerty Motofest is getting bigger each year and attracts a lot of people and different cars. Nick said that “The Coventry event went extremely well. It was a tough weekend on the car, it’s all under cover and no air ventilation but the GBS held up perfectly, which wasn’t the case for a few of the cars (gearboxes, engines and a few cars hitting the walls)”. We look forward to hearing about more of their events throughout the year and sharing with you.

This Sunday we are excited to be attending the Motor Madness event at Bruntingthorpe. Niche Vehicle Network are one of the proud sponsors for the event and we can be found on the Niche Vehicle Network stand along with other vehicle manufactures in the Whittle building. This is a one day event taking place this Sunday (9th July) Please visit our event page for more details.

The GBS Factory is always busy, and we like to share with you what is going on both at the factory and behind the scenes. So why not follow us on FacebookTwitter @GBSCars and Instagram  or to receive monthly emails from GBS, please join our mailing list here.
