“This is a very exciting new program involving some terrific people,” Jensen MotorSport team owner Eric Jensen said.

During the past 15 years, the team has competed in championships including Firestone Indy Lights, the Atlantic Championship and Formula BMW Americas. Jensen Motorsport has enjoyed considerable success with driver development, including training many of North America’s top young racing talents during the past 10 years, including Markus Niemela, Frankie Muniz, Daniel Herrington, Tom Sutherland Tim Bridgman and Adam Pecorari.

Ostella is an example of a driver hoping to use the Road to Indy to move up the racing ladder with in hopes of reaching the IZOD IndyCar Series. The 19-year-old from Toronto is set to graduate to Firestone Indy Lights competition after having raced in the 2009 and 2010 Star Mazda championships.

“David Ostella is a very fast and marketable race car driver,” Jensen said. “Our team has recently signed renowned race engineer Remi Lanteigne to quarterback our technical program, so together with David, we are enthusiastic about our new initiative.”

Jensen MotorSport is also pleased to announce Dipdive Network – www.dipdive.com – as a feature team partner for the 2011 racing season.
