After a rough start to the season, Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen earn the GT class title.

Chevrolet and Corvette Racing captured the GT class championship in the final season for its trademark yellow C6.Rs. Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen finished sixth in the No. 3 Compuware entry at Road Atlanta to win the driver titles – Garcia's first and Magnussen's second.

"There is no way we could think about this after no points at Sebring," said Garcia. "The Corvette Racing team just kept digging. We went from zero wins last year to three wins this year."

Magnussen, recipient of the ALMS Most Popular Driver Award, agreed.

"I could not believe Antonio and I would walk away with this after how the season started for us," he said.

"Antonio and Jan are very deserving champions of the ALMS' GT class," said Mark Kent, Chevrolet's Director of Racing. "Their performance, along with that of the team's crew members and engineers, set the standard in what arguably is the toughest class of sports car racing in North America.

"Congratulations to Antonio and Jan (and) everyone at Pratt & Miller and GM Racing Powertrain for a phenomenal end of the season and final race for the Corvette C6.R."

Chevrolet won its 10th ALMS manufacturer championship in 2013 as well as Corvette's 10th title in the series.
