Last week we received some great news from the USA our GBS dealer Brian Ball of Brian Ball Motorsports and Paul Barns who lives in Corona California emailed us the news that Pauls newly completed GBS Zero is now fully registered and on the road.

Brian and Paul worked very closely together to get the GBS Zero registered in America and are pleased to confirm that it has now been achieved. They both said that the registration process in California is one of the most stringent in the USA.  They had to take the car to the State department of motor vehicles to get the process started, then through many more processes to get the vehicle approved. But now they have done this it will be much simpler for future builders and Brian and Paul plan to assist other builders in California through the process.

It is fantastic news and already the GBS Zero’s in America are attracting a lot of attention. Pauls GBS Zero is a Zero Mazda GT kit which has taken him exactly a year to build, it is fitted with a 1.8L Mazda engine and Paul also fitted an oil cooler on the engine in anticipation of some hot days in stop and go LA traffic. Paul will be sending over some more photographs of his Zero shortly, that we look forward to sharing with you.

We saw Brian just before Christmas when he was over in the UK he came and spent the day with us at the GBS Factory, and we hope to see them both again soon when they are over in the UK.For more details about the GBS Zero in the USA please contact Brian and Paul or email them at

It’s been a busy start to the week in the GBS Workshop with GBS Zero Factory Builds, IVA’s and much more. We have also had Christian with us who has come over especially from Germany to spend a couple of days with the workshop team developing his skills and learning techniques to help with their build over in Germany. Christian is currently building a GBS Zero over in Germany with our GBS German dealer Bernd Backes.

Don’t forget the GBS Zero range will be on display over the weekend at the Race Retro Show (20th -22nd February) If you would like more details on the GBS Zero or to arrange a test drive and Factory visit please contact us. 

The GBS Factory is always busy, 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 Google +  or to receive monthly emails from GBS, please join our mailing list here.
