Gama on BBC Top Gear – Interceptor and MKIIIs

BBC Top Gear returned three Jensen Interceptors to Gama Cars yesterday after filming them the previous day for a special broadcast which will be going out on Sunday 24th July 2011 on BBC2.

Gama are extremely excited to be on Top Gear; the programme borrowed two original, privately-owned Jensen Interceptor MKIIIs and one new interpretation of the model (the Interceptor S), Jensen International Automotive’s Interceptor, for the filming!

The latter was with Top Gear an extra week for some additional filming.

We really recommend you watch the programme as it may be quite an interesting one for the brand, the models involved, and all of us at Gama who support JIA and the Jensen marque as well as many other makes in our tuning and upgrade engineering work.



First new Jensen’s near completion!

Gama are pleased to announce the first 2 cars from the new Interceptor S production line, are nearing completion ready for delivery to their proud new owners in the next few weeks!

Pictures will be posted soon showing the finished cars, but in the mean time, take a look at them being worked on via the BBC news video that was taken last week:

Gama Tuning Open Day – 22nd May

Gama will be holding its next tuning day on Saturday 22nd May!

Whilst this IS open to anyone with a car that is not necessarily a Mercedes or BMW, we do ask that you check with us first to see if it can be re-mapped and we can then provide you with expected BHP and torque improvement figures.

Unfortunately we have to restrict the number of cars we do in 1 day, therefore we ask that at the point of booking, you pay a £50 deposit and the first 20 people who do so, will be the only ones who can take advantage of the special price on the day.

Only £175!
With prices normally starting from £245 upwards, we are offering an ‘Open Day Only’ special price of £175!  All tuning booked outside of the Tuning Day, will be subject to normal pricing.

This blog will be updated as we get nearer to the date, so please keep checking back.
To book your slot in the day, please email or call:

Mercedes-Benz UK Forum Tuning Day – Sat 1st May

Gama and Angel look forward to welcoming you to the first Mercedes-Benz UK Forum tuning day!

Hot and cold drinks will be available on the day, however due to the attendees being spread throughout the day, we will not be providing food as we simply wont know how many will still be there at lunchtime. There is a Morrisons superstore across the road. Toilet facilities are available on site at Gama too.
We would like your time with us to be enjoyable but safe and comfortable.  All those who have booked and paid their deposits should have received a confirmation email by now.  If not, please email and we will re-send it to you.

The address to come to is:-

Gama Motorsport
Riverside Business Park
Tramway Industrial Estate
Banbury OX16 5TU

Tel: 0844 414 5704

Most of you are likely to have Sat Nav, but just in case….. when you are driving past Morrison’s (with it being on your right hand side) take the next left down Tramway Industrial Estate and drive over the canal bridge.  Immediately take the first right (you will see new council offices on the corner). Drive to the end of the road into Riverside Business Park and you are there! There is ample parking, however please be advised that the first row of spaces opposite Unit 6 are for the tyre place in Unit 5 and those spaces are for their customers, so please do not park in these.

Obviously if you get lost on the day in Banbury, call Gama on 0844 414 5704.

Please note: If you have NOT booked and paid your deposit, please do not turn up on the day.  If you would like your car tuned, please call 0844 414 5704 or email to book your slot.  The day is divided up into specific timeslots per customer, so it is not an ‘open’ day as such.
