ZERO’S AT SILVERSTONE ON THE BRITISH GP CIRCUIT…..

Last Thursday (11th October) we were with the GBS Zero’s at Silverstone for a Track Day which was on the Grand Prix Circuit. It was another fantastic track day and again one of our best track days that we have done, it was enjoyed by everyone, and we were delighted that so many GBS Zero owners were able to join us as well as many customers who also came and enjoyed the day with us and enjoyed a few passenger laps around the Grand Prix Circuit. The weather was perfect and stayed dry for the whole day.

We took with us the GBS Zero Race demonstrator and our Zero Mazda demonstrator along with a stunning new factory built Zero that we took as the new owner was coming to view it and enjoy a ride out in for the first time.

Our Mazda demonstrator was hired out for the day and enjoyed by some friends of some Zero owners who were also out on the track in their own Zero. Our Zero Mazda demonstrator was driven there, used on the track and then driven back to the factory where it was straight back into doing test drives on the Friday and Saturday.

Our Zero Race demonstrators was busy all day with nonstop passenger rides. We were then joined by other Zero owners and in total there was 10 Zero’s out on the track and in the garages throughout the day.

All Zero’s performed well and attracted a lot attention throughout the day. It was great to see them all out on the circuit together, one lap is 3.660 miles (5,890km) with great corners and straights. We were based in the Silverstone National Pit and Paddock complex, where we had Garages reserved for us (Garage 5A). I enjoyed 3 very fast laps in the afternoon as a passenger with Sam Evans in the Zero Race that is powered by a Honda S2000 turbo charged engine, which was a great experience! I thought our Zero Race car was fast that is powered by a 2L Zetec, but Sam’s Zero was over taking everything that was in front him! All the team enjoyed several laps of the Circuit, Dominic who is with us for his placement year from Aston University where he is studying Mechanical Engineering also enjoyed the day with us in his own Zero along with his Father and Cousin. The Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit is one of our favourite circuits and we defiantly want to be back there soon for another track day.

We all had a fantastic day and would like to thank everyone who joined us, we will share more photos and videos with you from the day on our GBS Face Book page and Instagram later this week. We have not yet confirmed any more track day dates for 2019 but as soon as we do we will share them with you.
