Cosmo and Brown Struggle At Northeast Grand Prix

It was not a banner weekend for the #02 Extreme Speed Motorsports Patrón Ferrari F430 GT's performance at the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón NortheastGrand Prix at Lime Rock Park. Mincing no words, Guy Cosmo simply stated; "we did not produce the results we were hoping for."

"We just need to get this one behind us and gear up for Mid-Ohio," added Cosmo. bWith the ever-changing conditions and limited track time it was a tough weekend foreveryone. And that was really what this race was all about. We practiced and qualified in the rain and then race day was dry, hot and humid. Everyone was chasing theirset-up and we all suffered with the heat."

"I think the most frustrating part of all is we really had a fantastic time at Lime Rock," said Guy. "We were fortunate enough to have lots of friends and family come outto support us. Having everyone there, along with all the guests fromPatrón, experiencing the excitement of American Le Mans Series racing first hand from the chicsurroundings of the Patrón VIP Club was just great."

Extreme Speed Motorsports made their inaugural appearance at the 2010 12 Hours of Sebring and has enjoyed solid results given they're a new team and competing in what isarguably the most completive sports car racing series and division in the world. And even though the last two events did not produce the results they had hoped for, theteam takes pride in the fact they are taking the checkered flag and completing the races.J The team tested earlier this summer at Mid-Ohio and Cosmo is confident what they were able to learn will work to their advantage. The transporters and crews move in toLexington on Wednesday, August 4 in preparation for the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge.

"We should roll off the trailer fairly close to race ready," noted Cosmo. "Our summer test there went well, so everyone is very optimistic. We'll be ready."
