Last Sunday we were with the GBS Zero’s at Silverstone for a track day which was on the Grand Prix Circuit. It was a fantastic day and one of our best track days that we have done, it was enjoyed by everyone, and we were delighted that our GBS dealers from Sweden and USA were able to join us as well as many customers.

Stefan and Ulf came over especially from Sweden for the track day, they visited us on the Saturday at the GBS Factory then joined us on Sunday at Silverstone. Ulf in particular  is a massive fan of formula one and has always wanted to visit Silverstone and see the Grand Prix Circuit, his dream came true on Sunday when we let him take our GBS Zero demonstrator out for some laps on the Grand Prix circuit with Ulf in the passenger seat. Brain Ball our GBS Dealer in USA was over in Europe with a colleague which meant they were able to spend the whole weekend with us and enjoy several passenger laps of the circuit.

We took with us the GBS Zero Ford demonstrator that we drove down in on the Saturday and our GBS Zero Race that we transported in the trailer. Both demonstrators were busy all day with nonstop passenger rides. We were then joined by Ian and Dom Wills in their GBS Zero which they recently upgraded and fitted the 2L Zetec engine and were really pleased with the performance that the new engine gave. They joined us at our previous track day at Blyton Park earlier in the year, so this was there 2nd track day and now they are looking forward to next year’s track days already! Alexis and his girlfriend Debby joined us in his new GBS Zero that he recently bought, they came all the way over from Geneva for the weekend. We had Alexis GBS Zero in the workshop for track day preparation and geometry set up, so he collected it on Saturday and then drove down to Silverstone ready for Sunday.  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 Wing in the new state-of-the-art International Pit and Paddock complex, where we had one of the F1 garages reserved for us (Garage 7). I enjoyed 6 fast laps at the end of the day as a passenger with Laurence in the Zero, it was a great experience and the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit is the best circuit that I have yet been around!

We all had a fantastic day and would like to thank everyone who joined us, we will share more photos with you from the day on our GBS Face Book page later this week. We have not yet confirmed any more track day dates for 2016 but as soon as we do we will share them with you.
