[F-V8] 2008 Season

  • Sale
  • Regular price €0.00

The Formula V8 (F-V8) series will give you the opportunity to race Formula One Cars built between 2006 and 2008. In an attempt to curb the increasing engine power levels of the F-V10 series, the maximum engine displacement has been reduced from 3.0 to 2.4 litres and the number of cylinders from 10 to 8. At similar engine speeds, the change was expected to cut peak power by around 200 bhp, which would equate to around three to five seconds on lap times at most circuits. Initial testing indicated the new engines were six seconds slower than their V10 counterparts...

However it became obvious that despite the decrease in power, lap times were not far from the F-V10 series !The Formula V8 Series will race with Toyota TF-108 chassis built in 2008. Toyota TF108 was a Formula One car with which Toyota competed in the 2008 Formula One season. The 2008 Toyota challenger the Toyota TF108 was launched on 10 January 2008, at the team's factory in Cologne, Germany.
