Earlier this week we receive the official Safety Cage Certificate from MSA, so we are very excited to announce that the new FIA Race chassis is now fully FIA approved and is the latest development from GBS. Its integrated roll over protection system (ROPS) is designed around the latest FIA requirements to ensure maximum safety when you need it most. This new chassis is actually lighter than our previous MSA compliant race chassis despite having several meters of additional tubing and reinforcement, this is down to the thinner wall section of the high grade CDS tubing used to construct the ROPS. The ROPS itself complies with the latest strict MSA/FIA design requirements and has undergone crash simulation through Finite Element Analysis (FEA) at the Horiba Mira test house in Warwickshire. The ROPS passed with exceptional results showing only 4.6mm max displacement on the main hoop with a pass allowance of 50mm and only a 15mm max displacement on the front hoop with a pass allowance of 100mm, this impressive result reinforces the performance of this very special 7 silhouette race chassis. Couple this chassis with our class leading suspension and upright combination for a true winning formula.

You may have seen the new chassis at many events that we have been at this year including the Autosports Show and Race Retro Show, for more details about the new FIA Zero Race Chassis please contact us. The price is to be confirmed and will be released on our website very soon.

Its also been a very busy week with lots of test drives in the Zero and kit Collections, earlier this week we were pleased to see Jonathan Lambourne from Wiltshire come and collect his Zero Ford Kit. Jonathan came and saw us earlier this year at the Autosport Show at the NEC in Birmingham and then came and visited us at the factory and enjoyed a tour of our facilities and test drive in our Zero demonstrator. Then placed his order for a Zero Ford kit which we look forward to following the progress and sharing with you all.

If you have any questions or would like any more details on the GBS Zero range please contact us on 01623 860990 or email us. We are open Monday to Friday 9am – 5.30pm and most Saturdays 10am – 2pm if we are not at a track day or show, please check our event page to see our weekend openings.

We are always busy at the GBS Factory, 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 and now we are also on Pinterest.
