The Wolf GB08 Thunder flying in Mugello’s third round of the Italian Sports Prototypes 2018

18.07.2018: The sporting path of the Wolf GB08 Thunder in its debut season has marked another extraordinary result in the third round of the Italian Sports Prototypes Championship 2018, race run last weekend.

The sporting path of the Wolf GB08 Thunder in its debut season has marked another extraordinary result in the third round of the Italian Sports Prototypes Championship 2018, race run last weekend.



The car built at the factory located in Gardone Valtrompia confirmed all its quality also in Tuscany and positively impressed drivers and staff for its performance. The Wolf GB08 Thunder posted an amazing 1’44.579s with Dario Capitanio as fastest lap of the weekend in qualifying.



Thanks to this exceptional adaptation to the circuit of Mugello this time was 2s quicker than the pole position of the GT3 cars and 3s faster than the best lap posted by Formula 4 last year.



The Wolf GB08 Thunder pushed by the 1000cc Aprilia RSV4 engine not only produced great speed but also granted an exciting spectacle on track with 20 drivers challenging each other corner after corner, keeping the fight for the victory open until the end. Three rounds in, the Italian Sports Prototypes 2018 Championship has three drivers within three points only.




Giovanni Bellarosa (Wolf Racing Cars, General Manager):




“The Wolf GB08 Thunder project keeps awarding us with great satisfaction. The performance scored in Mugello has been an important confirmation of the feeling that this car can give to the driver, despite the reduced costs compared to other types of cars.



The car adapted very quickly to this circuit, which is not trivial as the layout of this racetrack is more demanding, in terms of general mechanics, engine and tyres, than Monza and Misano. The interest around this project keeps growing and the challenge of the Italian Sports Prototypes is certainly a great showcase for the quality of the Wolf GB08 Thunder in all conditions”.



Wolf Racing Cars will be back on track for the fourth round of the Italian Sports Prototypes 2018 at the Enzo e Dino Ferrari Circuit of Imola next July 27th – 28th.
