    The V8 Series races with the JL G-09 model used by all teams in the series is made of a tubular chassis, covered by fiber glass bodywork shaped as a Chevrolet Sonic or Peugeot 408 car models, but with identical performance.

    Powered by a V8 engine with 520 HP, 6-speed transmission and total weight rounding up to 1320 kg, the car can reach speeds of up to 270 km/h.

    The vehicles are equiped with a so called “push –to-pass” system: Just like in the real series, the player can configure a button to boost the engine power in 50 HP for a few seconds, in order to assist overtaking other cars during race sessions.

    The V8 Series is ideal for top-top racing, three days a week!

    Schedule
    The V8 server will be online all week for practicing. The server is setup with an extended first practice session. Please only use this practice session when racing online for fun, do not vote it round unless being asked to do so.

    i like the idea of two series a week like this. it would be quite cool if they were both at the same track i think. Also how about running a second race straight after the first? maybe with a qually inbetween to let others join? the more rank events the better.
     
  6. Definitely down for this.

    Hoping to be there tomorrow and Thursday as well :)

    @Scott Webber Remember that awesome push to pass overtake you did when we raced here? :)

    Was a pleasure to watch as well :D especially at the start when there were 5 of you battling it out, well done :thumbsup:
     
  14. Fantastic cars! I had a great battle with Lars and Robert until an extremely light touch with Lars sent me flying off the track :(

    Edit: ah that was Matt Richards who I touched with, not Lars. Same car :)

  15. You were flying in race trim, Matt. Much quicker than the rest of us, even at the end on worn tires.
