End of Season 8 in the V8ESC

XVR look to be on course for a clean sweep in the Racetech Euro V8 Championship in Season 8! With Nicol Foggie heading the main drivers championship, Steve Levallee on top in the Club championship and the team at the top of the table for the Team championship it looks like another highly successful season for the team.

Everyone has got to grips with the new V8’s, with what some say is the hardest car to master on the service, and it’s been a great effort by the whole team to get such speed so quickly.
