  • The new Marina Bay Circuit which hosted the Singapore GP at night hosted its first Grand Prix in 2008. The race, held on a street circuit designed by KBR, is GP4 Offline Championship first night race. The practice and qualifying sessions also take place at night.
  • The European GP was scheduled to take place at the Valencia Street Circuit in 2008, changing from the Nürburgring which hosted the event up until 2007. Because both German circuits share the right to host an Grand Prix 4 OC race, the German GP took place at Hockenheimring in 2008. It will continue to alternate between these two circuits yearly. But after an serious problem with the track in Valencia the European GP was held at the Nürburgring once again. They want to fix the problem until 2009.
  • The United States GP did not hold a Grand Prix in 2008; however, a possible return to Indianapolis in the future was not completely ruled out.
  • In the run up to the 2007 French GP it was reported that it would be the last Grand Prix to be held at Magny-Cours.
