Multi-race Program Debuts at 43rd Annual Rolex 24 at Daytona

(West Palm Beach, FL -- February 1, 2005) Guy Cosmo announced today the signing of a multi-race marketing partnership with Demonspeed.com, a Florida based speed shop run by racers, for racers. Demonspeed.com livery and clientele will join Cosmo as he and Apple Motorsports attack the Grand American GT category at this weeks 43rd Annual Rolex 24 at Daytona, February 5-6th.

Demonspeed International is a Florida based Company with locations across the state. Demonspeed manufactures braided brake and clutch lines for all cars as well as being a dealer for Ironclad Gloves, Pit Crew Racing products, Wings West, Sparco and others. The Company was first opened in 1996 by Douglas Pirrotta, himself an avid racer and motorsports enthusiast.

"I am 34 years old and have attended this race 32 times" said Pirrotta, describing his love for the twice-around-the-clock event. "Having participated in this race with my own team several times, Daytona holds a special place in my heart. Aside from being a valuable part of our marketing efforts, Guy is also a friend so it will give us the opportunity to renew our friendship and conduct some business all at the same time."

Doug looks forward to reuniting with Cosmo, having first tapped Guy's talents in 1998 to drive along-side him in "The Longest Night", a 24-hour endurance race. "Any team that Guy is a part of has a tremendous chance to succeed" says Pirrotta. "We've raced together in the past and formed a great friendship right away. So much of racing is chemistry. Guy is incredibly talented, extremely versatile and he just oozes charisma. He is hands down the most marketable driver we've ever met."

Cosmo will pilot the #93 Apple Motorsports GT3-Cup Porsche in the Rolex GT category. He will drive with team owner and former Rolex 24 GTT class champion Gary Stewart and his nephews Dave Stewart, Rob Stewart and Bobby Gilbert.

"I'm really glad to have Doug and Demonspeed.com on board with me for the 24" says Cosmo. "Doug's always wanted to win Daytona and I'd love to bring that win to him. Demonspeed is a fun company and very enthusiastic about racing. I look forward to us both accomplishing our goals together."
