This is Cosmo's first GT pole in ALMS and a first 1-2 qualifying for Extreme Speed Motorsports.

The recently married Cosmo credited his speed to his wife Louisa and his new life-status noting, "I always said I'd be faster once I was married."

Extreme Speed Motorsports' Ferraris feature a special livery for this year's Petit Le Mans. Guy acknowledged the unique livery:

"The special Ultimat Vodka and Action Against Hunger livery for this race is just ballistic," said Guy. "Ultimat Vodka is another premium Patrón Spirits brand and it's great that we're building it's awareness to all the Patrón Tequila fans out there. Action Against Hunger is a global organization committed to saving the lives of malnourished children across the world. So as we close out the season and head into Thanksgiving and the holidays, we wanted to draw attention to the crucial work that Action Against Hunger does and encourage people to learn more and support this very important cause."

As part of the Ultimat Vodka livery, fans can contribute to Action Against Hunger at The online fundraising campaign supporting Action Against Hunger, will run through the end of the year.
