In its last full season racing in the GT1 class in the ALMS, Corvette Racing won all eleven races to easily claim the manufacturers" and team championships for the eighth straight year. The number 3 Corvette C6-R driven by Jan Magnussen and Johnny O"Connell captured the drivers" championship ahead of the number 4 Corvette driven by Oliver Gavin and Olivier Beretta.

Mark Kent, director of GM Racing, accepted the manufacturers 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."

O"Connell won the GT1 drivers championship for the third time in his career, but his first with Jan Magnussen. O"Connell also came within three votes of winning the Most Popular Driver award.

"Jan and I were teamed together in 1999 with another marque, and we never got that second season," said O"Connell. "I"m so grateful to everyone at Chevrolet for giving us the opportunity to realize what I thought would have happened in 2000. I"m blessed that throughout my career I"ve had great teammates, guys that I could push and that could push me. To all the great champions, whether you won or not, it's an honor for all of us to compete with you week in and week out."
