Cosmo upbeat heading to VIR for ALMS

After the tight city streets of Baltimore, the entire American Le Mans Series paddock appears excited to hit the wide open circuit at Virginia International Raceway. This will be the series first appearance at the historic track.

Guy Cosmo, like every other driver in the Series, can't wait to hit the track with his Extreme Speed Motorsports Patrón Ferrari 458 GT.

"VIR is a true road racers dream and one of the absolute best circuits to drive, ever," said Cosmo.

"It's a very unique blend providing a driver everything he could ask for.

The track has a great flow and a variety of challenges.

You see some very technical slow and medium speed sections, two very long straights, killer braking and passing zones, and a few death-defying high speed sections that will have you holding your breath on every approach… and that will make you cry for your mamma if you get them wrong. You get all of that, and the place is just beautiful. I love going to VIR."

Earlier this year, the Series set up a special test date to give teams the opportunity to test and have a chance to learn the track.

"We tested a few month ago," noted Guy. "I have to say, the ESM Patrón Ferraris were impressive. We had a very productive test. We learned a lot and were able to get the team ready for this place. I'm certain the conditions will be different this week, but I'm very confident we'll have strong cars for the race. I'm really looking forward to the weekend."
