There are two belts on the front of the engine - a V-ed belt that
drives all of the accessories (air con., alternator, hydraulics) and
a toothed belt that drives one cam on each side. Both belts go all
over the front of the engine - it isn't 'one per side'.
They're both over two metres long, BTW.
There is a separate chain on the back of each bank to keep the
twin camshafts each side in check.
There is a separate V8Q mailing list, where I'm sure you be able to
find more information. Perhaps some kind soul will post the URL
