Having amassed an extensive amount of knowledge over his 25 years in the sport, Sera is now turning his focus to helping the next generation of stars. Sera’s mission: To get the most out of each driver and provide tuition to continually improve. The core of the KartClass programs is the ability to fine-tune each driver’s skill set. Being a successful driver himself, David has the ability to give the finest details in his coaching. From corner entry to throttle and brake modulation and overtaking, to how to get the best jump off the start of a race and avoid on track incidents, David can provide the necessary tools to get drivers to the front of the pack. There are few who offer this type of detailed coaching, and even fewer that have the ability to verbalise their expectations to their protégés.
