22 year old motorsports entrepreneur and racing veteran Cole Bosanoz has been in the industry since he was 2 months old, however he as a racer has yet to do one thing; enter a professional race. Some may look at his age and see that as a detriment, however Bosanoz has used it to his advantage this time.
At the end of the month, Cole will enter the first ever Ford Racing Mustang Challenge Driver Shootout for a chance to win a $15,000 scholarship to race in the Mustang Challenge season finale in Utah. The requirements?
Produce a two-minute video explaining why you should be chosen to be one of five finalists to battle it out at the Mustang Challenge proving grounds in Toole, Utah: home to The Miller Motorsports Park. Check.
On July 17th, Cole teamed up with his room-mate, ironically enough a cinematographer. Karl Geweniger, a Columbia College Chicago graduate helped film and co-produce the two minute bio. Geweniger took Cole's vison and talent on the racetrack and captured the essence of speed melding racing with art. In addition to Geweniger, Cole's girlfriend Leisa Hurst will tackle the motion graphics on the project, something she is well versed in having graduated from the Illinois Institute of Art Chicago for visual effects.
Step two? Have a valid racing license and no professional starts. Check.
So with the video produced and submitted the crew must wait for the Mustang Challenge's final decision. While representatives from the Mustang Challenge, BF Goodrich and Ford decide the outcome the public will be able to view the video that Cole and Karl produced on Vimeo by searching Cole Bosanoz and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ColeRace. Fans can view the submission August 1st.
Cole was tentative to use such professional help but stresses that the video was produced with zero production cost. Everything required was donated. Cole used a Spec Miata donated by Jack Murphy and utilized the facilities at the Autobahn Country Club Joliet for free. He would also like to thank Dan Norton who mastered the audio on the project as well as driver coaches Kevin Krauss and Tony Kester for providing soundbites.
Do you think Cole has what it takes? Help Cole by viewing the submission August 1st!
