GBS ZERO’S OUT ON THE TRACK IN AMERICA….

A few weekends ago (14th – 16th September) the Zero’s were at Laguna Seca raceway home of the famous “Corkscrew” complex of corners.  Dan Kincade and Paul Barnes our Representative in the United States, made the 8 hour drive up from Southern California to Laguna Seca which is located in Monterey California.  Car fans around the world will know Monterey is home of the world famous car week held in conjunction with the Peddle Beach Concours d’Elegance with beautiful coastal views.  The Zeros joined over 800 other Mazda Miata MX5 powered cars at the event.  While out on track Dan soon noticed the increased performance difference between his road going Mazda powered Zero and even the full race MX5’s. Dan can be seen below taking on the Corkscrew.

Mazda also used the event to take some promotional video’s for an upcoming add campaign with a parade of MX5’s that stretched the full length of the circuit so watch out for a zero somewhere in the line of cars stretching back from the camera car in upcoming MX5 commercials.  There was great interest in the Zero’s as MX5 owners saw the advantage of “adding lightness”  rather than adding power to achieve the performance they have dreamed about while driving their cars.  With several Zeros nearing completion on the west coast of the USA next year promises to be even bigger for Zeros at the event.

Below are a few photographs that Dan and Paul have sent us of the weekend. The next track event for the GBS team is our GBS Track Day at Silverstone which is happening on Thursday 11th October and will be on the Grand Prix Circuit, please see more details on our event page.
