Monterey, Calif. (2 May 2015) –Guy Cosmo was back in IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar series competition on Sunday as he teamed up with young Patrick Byrne to pilot the No. 45 Audi R8 LMS for Flying Lizard Motorsports in the Continental Tire Grand Prix of Monterey at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The weekend marked the first-ever TUDOR outing for Bryne as he made the transition from Ferrari Challenge and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge competition to the top step of the IMSA ladder with a run in the TUDOR GTD class alongside Cosmo.
This week Flying Lizard Motorsports returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix, the next round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. In 2014, the team earned pole position and led every lap of the 78 lap race. The perfect run ended in heartbreak as the car ran out of fuel in the legendary corkscrew in the final lap, resulting in a 6th place finish.
With a strong determination, the Lizards will return this week to reclaim the win that narrowly escaped their grasp in 2014. Driving the No. 35 Audi R8 LMS will be veteran IMSA driver Guy Cosmo and Ferrari Challenge driver Patrick Bryne.
