In the last season, Corvette Racing has won all eleven races to claim the manufacturers and team championships for the eighth straight year. The number 3 Corvette C6-R is driven by Jan Magnussen and Johnny Oâ€™Connell and has captured the drivers championship ahead of the number 4 Corvette drivers. Mark Kent, director of GM Racing, accepted the manufacturersâ€™ championship trophy on behalf of Chevrolet.
"Corvette Racing has achieved remarkable results in 10 years of competition in the GT1 category," Kent said. "The 2008 season marks the end of one chapter in Corvette Racing history, and the beginning of a new chapter as we move into the GT2 category in 2009. We look back at our past success with pride, and we look forward to new challenges with determination to succeed. We anticipate great competition, and I can think of no team that is better prepared for that challenge than Corvette Racing." This amazing car can reach 0-60 mph in less than 3.3 seconds and top speeds of 187 mph.
