The 2008 Superleague season is the 9th GPVWC Superleague season. It was the first time in several years the league had used the GPVWC moniker, and was to be the last year in which Geoff Crammond's GP4 was used.

2008 was a difficult year in many ways. Membership was down to the lowest the league had ever seen and a fresh start was needed with little time and tools at the league's disposal.
