GBS ZERO ARRIVES AT THE GBS FACTORY FROM SPAIN & ZERO’S ATTRACTING ATTENTION IN USA…

Last week we were pleased to see the arrival of Ben Shepherd’s GBS Zero at the GBS Factory. Ben’s GBS Zero kit was delivered to him in Spain earlier this year in March, Ben’s Zero was a Ford Based Narrow body with aluminium panels then factory painted white with 2 black stripes, powered by a Ford Zetec Engine with ATR Throttle Bodies and ATR Suspension. We fitted and painted the panels prior to the delivery of the kit along along with a few other jobs which cannot be done once the panels have been fitted. Ben’s Zero is back with us for the IVA Service and once it has passed the IVA test and Registration is complete Ben plans to come back to England from Spain and drive his brand new GBS Zero home.

Ben has made a stunning job of his Zero build, we have seen photographs of Ben’s Zero at several stages through the build, but it is great to see it in real life. We look forward to seeing Ben again soon when he comes to collect his GBS Zero.
Over in the USA Brian Ball has been busy with the GBS Zero’s and it was nice to receive an email from him last week saying that he had a great day at the Colorado British Conclave which they enjoyed receiving first place in the Lotus 7 Class.
Also in the USA Paul Barns sent us some photographs of his GBS Zero at Mazfest 2015 which was held on the infield of Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California. Paul left his home at 6am by which time it was already 75 F to get a head start on the traffic and was on the road as the sun came up.  The photo of the car in the morning light with the mountains in the background shows  he was first there for set up.  Paul’s son Jeremy came about an hour later in his car with all the supplies and they set up the display.  Paul said as usual the Zero attached a lot of attention but also as usual is was pretty darn hot, 105 F, the ice cream man was doing a great deal of business and he made sure the GBS was displayed right next to his truck!

It was also nice to see on the GBS Face book page GBS Customer Ian Harrison shared with us a video of him taking 1st Overall in Nat B section of the Farnborough Autosolo. He said his GBS Zero GT beat all the Westfield’s, Caterham’s and host of other makes.
