As the year is coming to an end we took a look back at some of GBS’s best moments of 2016. 2015 was a great year for us and looking again back  through the GBS Blog shows that 2016 really has been another great year for us, we have attended many new shows & events, met some great people and had some great experiences, these are just a few of our favourite moments and photos from 2016 that we would like to share with you again.

In January we were excited to share with you that we were able to offer finance options on GBS Zero Factory Builds, Zero Kits and many associated products which has proved popular, we welcomed Anthony to the GBS team who is our design engineer and has had a very busy year with lots of exciting products being designed and developed. We had filming at GBS with Cadtek who we produced a promotional video with that captures what we do as a company, if you’ve not seen the video then you can see it here.
2016 saw the GBS workshop get even bigger as we had a mezzanine floor installed. We launched our new Cars & coffee events which have been fantastic and proved very popular, so 2017 GBS Cars and Coffee events can only be better, We had several GBS Zero kits exported to USA and across Europe and we were also featured in a  renowned Danish motor magazine Bil Magasinet of Copenhagen where there is considerable interest in these style of cars. The GBS Zero Ford demonstrator took part in the London to Brighton Kits & sports Car Run. We did several GBS track days including a Rockingham track day which was great to experience the Zero’s on a new track that we have never been on before. The GBS Zero Run Out was another fantastic day and enjoyed by everyone, the planning for the 2017 GBS Zero run out is now under way.

Our new Apprentice Thomas Slaney joined us and has been busy ever since he started in the GBS Machine Shop and Design Room. His skills and knowledge have developed and most of all he is enjoying his apprenticeship with us. We have supplied many universities and colleges across the country with Zero kit builds which has been fantastic and we have enjoyed having the students join us at GBS for factory tours where we have shared our knowledge and passion for what we do!

These are just a few of the highlights of this year, but please look back through the blog and see what other things that we have been upto over 2016. We would like to thank you all for your support over the year and help making it another successful year. We’re looking forward to 2017 already as that’s looking like its going to be very exciting.

The next event for the GBS team is our Christmas event at the GBS factory that is happening this Saturday 10th December. It looks like it’s going to be a busy day, there will be plenty of mince pies, we hope you can join us. Please visit our event page for more details.
