On November 12, 2016, the CRKC Awards Banquet for drivers in the Goodwood Kartways and Mosport Kartways series was held in Woodbridge, Ontario.

Fellow competitor, Matte Ferrari, received recognition for winning the Saturday championship in the Goodwood CRKC, beating last year’s champion Tyler Yue and newcomer Adam Ali.


Daniel DiLeo was the master of ceremonies, helping to recognise the accomplishments of numerous drivers in different age categories across both series.

The top three drivers on the Friday schedule of the Goodwood CRKC were champion Daniel Demaras, runner-up Alexander Holyer and third place finisher Ivan Kosar.


Receiving awards for the Sunday schedule at the Mosport CRKC were champion Daniel Demaras, with Rebecca McDonald edging out her brother Joshua for second place.


Demaras Auto Racing Team’s sponsor Laird Auto Body was represented by its young executive, Phil Hatzinikolaou, on hand to share the joy of Daniel’s two championships.

Daniel Demaras is now a two-time CRKC Champion, and one of few drivers to win championships at both Goodwood and Mosport.


Family is very important to a young racer. Michelle and Alice Demaras were proud of Daniel’s accomplishments in 2016, and were happy to help him bring home the hardware!
