Written By: Walt Thurn / CorvetteMotorsport.com

Algarve Portugal – In race nine the Callaway Competition and Graff Racing Corvettes battled to second and third place finishes.

However that opportunity came to a close today when Christian Hohenadel and Daniel Keilwitz took the overall victory. The duo were awarded the 2010 FIA GT3 Drivers Championship with 181 total points.
