Cosmo will make his debut with the team January 4-6, joining co-drivers Emil Assentato, Anthony Lazzaro & Nick Longhi at this week's ROAR Before the 24 testing at Daytona International Speedway.

"I'm thrilled to be joining AIM Autosport FXDD Racing With Ferrari for the 2013 Rolex 24 at Daytona," said Cosmo. "It's an event every driver dreams of winning... and what better chance of doing it than with the team and the Ferrari that won last years Championship."

"Of course I'm back with Extreme Speed Motorsports and Tequila Patrón for the full American Le Mans Series this season," Guy added. "But since it wasn't part of the plan for me to race at Daytona with them this year, ESM was gracious in allowing me to join AIM Autosport FXDD Racing for this event allowing me to stay behind the wheel of these impeccable Italian machines, while continuing my growing relationship with Ferrari."

No stranger to AIM Autosport, Guy worked with team principal Ian Willis early in his career. Ian served as mentor and race engineer during Cosmo's championship-winning years in USF2000. In addition, Guy has driven with Emil Assentato, finishing 3rd at the Watkins Glen 6 Hour in 2011 teamed with GT Champion Jeff Segal in the FXDD Mazda RX-8.

"We are all very pleased to have Guy for the Rolex 24," said Nick Longhi. "Our partners at FXDD are also happy to have him on the team again for such an important event. The GT category in the 24 has become an all-out sprint race from start to finish and Guy has all the speed and experience we need to stay at the front. Anthony has won this race twice and Emil and I have finished second, so with a Championship winning team and a fantastic Ferrari race car, our ambitions our clear. "

"The Rolex 24 at Daytona is one of the greatest endurance races in the world," Guy acknowledged. "For one reason or another, success keeps eluding me at the 24. 2013 is a new year, though... and my New Years resolution is to win races this year. So I'm fairly confident I'm going into the 2013 24 with my best chances yet. AIM Autosport FXDD Racing With Ferrari are a proven entity and they show up for nothing but the win. I'm here to help!"
