Guy Cosmo Set For 2006 American Le Mans LMP2 Championship Run

Road racing standout, Guy Cosmo, announced he is competing for the 2006 LMP2 Championship in the American Le Mans Series, returning with the BK Motorsport Team and Mazda North America.

"I'm excited about returning to the American Le Mans Series," said Guy. "We had a great season in 2005 and as we formulate our effort for 2006, I expect we'll find our way to front of the LMP2 grid. It's an extremely competitive class with an impressive line-up of talented drivers. I'm motivated by the quality of the field and looking forward to rejoining my teammates at BK Motorsport and Mazda North America."

Currently preparing for the 54th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, the former Star Mazda Series Champion reflected on the job at hand.

"I think people are going to see some terrific racing in the LMP2 class this year," Guy continued. "There's obviously a lot of anticipation regarding the arrival of top tier teams to the LMP2 class, but I think you'll see everyone step up their effort. I think it's great seeing the bar raised. Endurance racing is never a slam-dunk and when you look at running flat-out for 12 hours at a track like Sebring, anything can and will happen. That's what makes this form of racing so challenging and rewarding."

Recognized as one of the most successful and versatile young racing drivers in North America, Guy ranks among the top-level road racers in the world. He has earned overall racing titles and major successes in many disciplines including karting, Formula Ford, Formula 2000, Star Mazda, Toyota Atlantic, Grand American and American Le Mans. Yet, it is Guy's extensive background between open-wheel formula cars and sports prototypes that earns him his reputation as one of the most diverse and accomplished drivers still capable of rookie status in many series.

Known for his extensive experience in car and chassis development, tire testing, driver coaching, data acquisition and knowledge of tracks throughout North America, Guy is fast, responsible and consistent. He has a solid history of excellent results while preserving equipment and avoiding incidents. Always the consummate professional, Guy is a favorite with fans and the media.
