Hit a Grand Slam at the 2015 Necker Cup BVI hosted by Sir Richard Branson

Like me, you may have had to settle for the living room plasma screen when Novak Djokovic went head-to-head with the legendary Roger Federer, or the emotional defeat of Serena Williams by Roberta Vinci at the 2015 US Open hosted in New York. Lucky for us, global business mogul and visionary Sir Richard Branson is bringing the thrill of tennis down south at the 2015 Necker Cup Pro-Am and Legends Tennis Camp on Necker Island from November 28, 2015 through December 3, 2015.

 

The Necker Cup is acclaimed as the “most fun and exclusive” Pro Am Tennis Event IN THE WORLD. Naturally, the event will be hosted in true Branson style. The all-inclusive six-day/five-night experience will include sixteen ATP/WTA Tour Players and legends who will be paired up with sixteen amateur teams of all levels. Imagine going back and forth on the courts with tennis greats Boris Becker, Brad Gilbert, Martina Navratilova, Marion Bartoli, Tracy Austin, Viktor Troicki, Donald Young, David Nalbandian, Chris Evert & Johan Kriek!

I know, this is an overdose of tennis frenzy and you may need some time to relax. There is still plenty for you to do at Necker Island like paddle boarding, sail boat races, kite boarding, wake boarding, snorkeling, massage therapy, parties, and more! A-list celebs including Sean Paul, Jewel, Charlotte McKinney & Chevy Chase will all be joining the festivities too!

The unique experience organized by Premier Tennis is all about FUN and has raised over $2 million for their chosen beneficiaries.

Guy Cosmo set for World Challenge Racing début this weekend

After starting his career in the open wheel ranks and then moving to sports car racing, Guy Cosmo has long been checking off a wide range of boxes on his career to-do list. And this weekend will see one more item marked off the list as Cosmo is set to make his Pirelli World Challenge debut.

The versatile racer has been tabbed by M1 Racing (http://m1racing.co) to pilot the No. 23 Tampa Bay Jaw Surgery Audi R8 LMS ultra as World Challenge opens the 2015 season at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend.

The visit to the 3.418-mile circuit is not the first for Cosmo, who already knows the way to the podium at the Texas track, having scored a runner up finish in ALMS competition aboard a P2 entry. Cosmo has driven a range of GT machinery on the circuit including testing the Ferrari Challenge 458 platform at the picturesque track. Cosmo opened the year as reserve driver for the visitflorida.com line up at the Rolex 24, and the popular pilot is looking forward to his first taste of World Challenge action this weekend.

“Pirelli World Challenge has seen incredible growth in the past few years and this season in particular will be extremely competitive,” said Cosmo. “The sprint format will be a welcome change for me where I can focus on myself and the car without the compromise of a teammate, and to do all this at a world-class race track like Circuit of the Americas is just fantastic. I am ready to rip.”

The weekend will open up with a test day on Thursday, with Race 1 set for Saturday afternoon and Race 2 on Sunday. Live streaming of the race will be available at www.world-challenge.tv.
