The goodness of the technical project devised by Wolf Racing Cars, that designed, built and developed this car specifically for this single make Italian Sports Prototypes Championship 2018-2022 collected another important confirmation at the circuit of Santerno, where the Wolf GB08 Thunder pushed by an Aprilia RSV4 1.0 liter engine has been shining again as in all the previous races.
Excitement has been high for the whole event, starting from free practice, to qualifying and to the two electrifying races, the first decided a few meters to the chequered flag in an amazing closing lap, and the second that witnessed countless overtaking moves and twists, as the top five closed within a handful of seconds.
The Wolf GB08 Thunder confirmed the very high level of the project, as shown by the fastest lap of the weekend, a 1’44.941s posted by Matteo Pollini in race two, that was 1.57s quicker than the fastest lap in qualifying by Formula 4.

“Eight rounds into the series the satisfaction coming from the Wolf GB08 Thunder is growing and growing. The weekend of Imola has been another very important test-bench. The Championship is in its decisive stage and drivers did not hold anything back and cars have been challenged more than any other time, but reacted very well both in terms of single lap and race pace. The aero package of the car combined to the excellent Aprilia RSV4 engine confirmed to be a very exciting mix capable of adapting to the driving style of all drivers also at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari circuit. The balance of performance exalted the driving skills of the drivers and produced an exciting spectacle. Five different winners in eight races: these figures speak for themselves. This is a crescendo of sporting thrills that will reach its top after the summer break”.
