COSMO BACK IN SERIES AS PART OF CHALLENGE CLASS
The introduction of the American Le Mans Series' Challenge class at the Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix is bringing back some familiar faces. Among them is Guy Cosmo, who is scheduled to drive one of ORBIT Racing's Porsche 911 GT3 cup entries with John Baker at Miller Motorsports Park.
Cosmo's most recent stint in the Series saw him as part of B-K Motorsports' LMP2 program with a rotary-powered Courage C65-Mazda. He teamed with Jamie Bach for two seasons that saw them earn one class victory (2005 at Mid- Ohio), Rookie of the Year honors (2005) and nine podium finishes.
Cosmo also drove for American Spirit Racing at Sebring in 2003, a 12th- place overall finish with Mike Lewis and Tomy Drissi.
