Teams' ChampionshipEdit

Points were awarded to the top 8 finishers in the order of 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1. Teams with multiple entries did not have their cars combined and each entry number was scored separately in the championship. Cars which failed to complete 70% of the winner's distance were not awarded points.

The top two finishers in each teams championship earned automatic entry to the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans.
