Earlier this week Bob De Jong and his wife Jeroentje came over from Holland to see us. They arrived in England on Tuesday morning and then drove over to the GBS factory to leave their GBS Zero GT with us for the day. Bob who has taken only 1 year and 3 months to build his GBS Zero GT wanted to bring it back to us to check over and advise on any areas of improvement. Bob had also booked Blyton Park for the Wednesday afternoon so that he could test his GBS Zero and get it all set up for the track. So Bob and Jeroentje were joined by Keith, Richard and Ben who all went out with Bob for several laps giving advice and making slight adjustment to the car to improve its handling and set up on the track.

Also Jon Payne joined us in his Zero Race that has been fitted with the brand new Ford Cosworth engine that produces 280bhp, this was Jons first outing in his Zero Race since it has been fitted with its new Cosworth Engine. It impressed Keith, Richard and Ben very much with how it performed and the power that it was producing. I had a passenger ride with Keith and it was the fastest I have ever been around the Blyton Track!

Bob and  Jeroentje will be joining us in their GBS Zero at the Nurburgring in June along with other GBS customers, and Jon will hopefully be joining us at Cadwell and Doningotn Park for the GBS Evening track days that we have booked.
