If you cut where you indicate and install the 7808 across that  point, you
will miss the supply point for the hall-effect sensors, they would still be
supplied by the higher zener V (note R109 that takes off around the
R112-D102 junction to head to the sensors).

Rather than cutting the trace, I would just remove R112 & D102 and install
the 7808 across the former R112 opening, with the aforementioned diode(s) in
the GND leg. There's enough copper there you may be able to drill a new hole
or two to catch the 7808 legs.

(Alternatively, 9.1V zeners are pretty common.)
