David Ostella wins every F1-K race in 2006
GOODWOOD, ONTARIO -- David Ostella came into the final weekend of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship with the F1-K championship already secured, but he still had something to race for. Ostella had the chance to be the first driver in the five year history of the championship to win every race during the season. Ostella won the F1-K final to make history.
Four other class champions were crowned on Saturday. Eric Gerrits won the Rotax Sr. Championship, Pearce Herder won Canada Senior, Anthony Furfari won the F1-K Cadet championship, Kevin Monteith won the Canada Junior Heavy Championship and Joshua Korenyi won the World Formula Junior Championship -- along with the GM Racing award on the day.

World Formula Junior
Pfaff Fast Qualifier; Joshua Korenyi

Pfaff Fast Qualifier; Chris Holman
Marco Di Leo passed pole man Holman for the win in the pre-final. Evan Hayden was third in the prefinal. In the final, Kyle Herder stormed forward to take the win over Aaron de Heus and Di Leo. Pearce Herder was fifth, and that was good enough to seal the championship.
Pfaff Fast Qualifier; David Ostella
David Ostella had another clean sweep in F1-K Junior. He won the pole, prefinal and final on his way to clean sweeping not only the day, but with the win, Ostella won every F1-K final this year. Behind Ostella in the final were Mike Lennie and Zac Mahoney.
GM Racing awards for outstanding skills went to Joshua Korenyi, who drove his way forward in World Formula Junior to claim the championship.
