THE CAR – HAWKEYE RACING RS18
THE 2018 SUPERLEAGUE
The Hawkeye RS18 is the 9th Superleague car the team have developed and is tipped to be come the most successful one yet.
2018 will be the second season in which Hawkeye will be using it’s own Talos engines, last years most developed engine.
The livery design is an evolution of last years, the day-glow yellow and dark blue colour scheme staying with the addition of black wings and barge boards making it

Liam de Waal is in his first full season in the Superleague after joining last year for the Italian GP. The Dutch driver started 2018 at Storm Racing but transfered to Hawkeye as a replacement for Manuel Martini. De Waal impressed everyone in the first round when he narrowly missed out on winning the Australian GP, finishing second. Regular points finishes for Hawkeye has cemented his reputation as a fast and consistent driver.

Not only is Costa new to Hawkeye, 2018 is also his first season racing in GPVWC. The Portuguese driver has already turned heads with his performances early on in the season and has impressed with his pace, matching team-mate Lopez. A determined driver with a winning mentality, Costa will no doubt be fighting with Lopez for Hawkeye’s first win of the season.
Chris Butcher made his GPVWC debut in 2013 for Formula Challenge team Airastream Motorsport, but it wasn’t until 2017 that he really made a mark in the series, scoring several podiums for Red Arrow Racing. These impressive performances caught the eye of Hawkeye manager Ric Scott, who signed the Brit as reserve driver for the 2018 season. Chris has started the 2018 Formula Challenge brilliantly and is currently topping the standings.
