Actually, you wouldn't want anything more powerful than 8x for race watching, a 10x would be great if the cars weren't moving. You need to hold a 10x pretty steady to get a good view. The cars will be easier to follow with an 8x. The 8x also has a wider field of view so you can track the action with it better.
All races are held in the daytime so you don't need the low light capabilities of a big 50mm objective lens, the 25mm lens will be quite sufficient and the smaller size makes it easier to carry around with you. On the ships we need quite often to view things in the distance and the most common binocular size we use is 7x50. 7x to help steady the view (the ship is moving) and 50mm for low light conditions.
These Ferrari binoculars look quite good and they are powerful enough. But a binocular is only as good as the quality of its optics. I'd be curious as to who makes them. If you can find out who makes the optics let us know.
