Cosmo last minute addition to Rolex 24 Road racing stand-out and 2005 American Le Mans Series Rookie of the Year, Guy Cosmo, will join Blackforest Motorsports in this year's all-star lineup for the 45th running of the Grand-Am Series Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Cosmo brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Blackforest team. He joins Champ Car pilot Alex Tagliani and car owner Tom Nastasi running the only Mustang Cobra GT entry in a field of 40 GT cars.
"This is a great opportunity for us to showcase the Mustang Cobra GT for Ford," said Guy, "and an excellent way to show the capabilities of Blackforest Motorsports. Brian Nott has put together a tremendous program and his knowledge has already brought great results to the team. Tom Nastasi and I have enjoyed racing together over the years and I'm looking forward to running in the 24 with him and Alex."
This will be the debut for the Mustang Cobra GT and everyone involved in the program is proud to have this opportunity.
"Tom had a lot of choices in selecting the drivers for this car," noted Cosmo. "It's always nice to know you were chosen based on your history and ability to bring in a solid performance. I appreciate the trust Tom has placed in me. And, I'm really looking forward to sharing the experience with Alex. I'm sure we'll both bring positive contributions to the effort. It's a good feeling knowing we're in equipment that has the pedigree and potential to win."
"The team tested recently," continued Guy "and everyone was pleased with the progress. The car was put through its paces in a good variety of weather conditions and responded very predictably to set-up changes. We're extremely confident in the car's reliability."
