Passion flows through everything in David Ostella’s life. Passion for his tight-knit Italian family and friends. Passion for style. Passion for success as a race driver.
That enthusiastic, infectious commitment paid off on the racetrack in 2013. Ostella showed skill and perseverance to win the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin championship, one of Porsche’s nearly 20 global one-make series designed to prepare drivers for North American competition in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship or GT racing worldwide.
This was just part of Ostella’s success story during his initial year of sports car racing, a year in which the potent combination of passion and focus helped him become a young star with proven results and unlimited potential.
Toronto-area native Ostella wasted little time serving notice of his diverse, polished skills in 2013. He drove with a veteran mix of metronomic consistency and relentless speed en route to victory in the Prototype Challenge class at the prestigious Twelve Hours of Sebring, his first sports car race and endurance event after spending formative years in North American open-wheel series.
Winning the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin title lifted Ostella’s status to an even higher pedestal. He added the dimension of steel and killer instinct to his colorful, larger-than-life personality.
Porsche took notice of Ostella and invited him as one of just four rising talents to participate in its Young Driver Academy.
Those experiences helped Ostella realize there’s more to success in racing than turning the wheel and pressing the pedals at the right time. A driver must be a complete package, on and off the track, to reach the top.
Ostella will race in the Prototype Challenge class in the elite IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in 2014 and 2015, working tirelessly to reach his goal of becoming a professional race driver. At the same time, he is continuing his collegiate studies to pursue a leadership role in the family business.
David Ostella has reached the next level. His career is riding an upward path with unstoppable inertia. He is a young man shifting into top gear in every aspect of his life.
He is poised, polished and professional. His time is now. He is ready to take your company or brand to the top with an unstoppable combination of passion and focus.
