Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor, and the No. 3 Corvette Racing team won the GTLM Drivers and Team championships two weeks ago at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca; this is Chevrolet’s 13th Manufacturers title in IMSA GT competition since 2001.

The C8 wins a handful of 2:40 sprints with the advantage of a rare Porsche season of difficulties and the usual BMW consistent weaknesses and they are called champions. As far as I'm concerned until they can produce at least podiums after long endurance events and are able to complete these events without major mechanical failures they are unworthy of being called champions.

Sounds like Porsche and BMW were unworthy of being called champions.
