Guy Cosmo And Mazda "Home" For American Le Mans Series Season Finale

Guy Cosmo and the B-K Motorsports team come "home" with the Mazda powered Road & Track / Kumho Tire #8 LMP2 car this weekend as the American Le Mans Series wraps up their season at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The Salinas California track is the spiritual home of Mazda and Mazda racing.

"We're very excited to get back on track at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca," said Guy Cosmo. "This is by far one of my favorite tracks, and our #8 Mazda / Road & Track / Kumho Tire LMP2 car is definitely one of the most exciting cars you can drive around this place."

The season finale for the American Le Mans Series has quickly earned its place as a fan and driver "favorite" since the race became and extended four-hour event racing through the hills of this legendary track and in the evening twilight.

"Jamie [Bach] and I are really looking forward to the 4 hours of racing around Mazda's spiritual home," Cosmo continued. "We'll be gunning for a podium finish. Last year we finished 3rd at this event, just 20 seconds out of 2nd place. Mazda Raceway is also where Jamie and I captured the Rookies of the Year award for 2005 as well. We truly like being here."

The season finale is more than just a four hour race at the track. The team has been active throughout the week participating in promotional events in the area.

"I've had a lot of fun already with the promotional events we were doing this week to generate awareness and interest in the American Le Mans Series and this weekends finale at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca," noted Guy. "Tuesday we had a Klein Tools pit stop competition demonstration in downtown San Francisco. It was very well-attended and televised by the local news. Then Wednesday we were in downtown San Jose driving the race cars through the streets, signing autographs, meeting fans... it was great."

Continuing with his "fan appreciation" campaign, fans attending this week's race and autograph session will be treated to Guy's official poster and 2007 calendar. Just stop by the B-K Motorsport Mazda transporter and pick one up.
