David begins an incredible four-week stretch of races this weekend.
Just four weeks after suffering a broken arm at the Cameron Motorsports Barrie Grand Prix, David Ostella will be back on the race track this weekend as he begins the most important four-week stretch of his season by racing in three different series' and a National Championship.
The stretch begins Friday in Wampum, Pennsylvania, as the World Karting Association Manufacturer's Cup Series visits BeaveRun Motorsports Complex for the SSC East/CRG Nationals. The fourth round in a five round championship, David enters Sunday's JICA race as the point leader in class by a substantial 100 points after scoring a pair of second-place finishes and a Grand National win at the last round. A fourth solid run will put David very near his goal of the Series Championship.
Just one week later, David returns to Canada and the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship for round four at Mosport International Karting. Once again David will enter Sunday race action as the championship leader as he is 29 points clear in Rotax Junior competition. Just as with action in the WKA, David has been on the podium in every round to date after sweeping the first two weekends and being classified third at Barrie after his accident lapping traffic. In Saturday action at the event, David will race F1-K Junior where he is also in the championship hunt sitting third in points.
The first weekend in August will see David and tuner Mike Roth head back to the US with the Cameron Motorsports National team for Snap-on Stars of Karting action in Shawano, Wisconsin, at USA International Raceway. The second and final Eastern-only event for 2007, David will enter in a positive frame of mind as it was at the same track in June where he captured his WKA Grand National Eagle. Mixed fortunes through the first four Series starts see David sitting eleventh of fifth in Eastern points heading into the double-race weekend.
Four weeks of racing will wind up at the 2007 ASN Canada FIA National Championships in Hamilton, Ontario, where David will look to win a spot on Team Canada for the Rotax Grand Final by finishing first or second. A thrilling format for the event, the National Championships race three heat races after timed qualifying in order to set the field for a Sunday main event. David will also race in F1-K Junior as a National support class.
