A glitch in the entry price has now been fixed. If you got in before the problem was sorted, the club may be in touch to fix it up properly.

SERA brand is here!

It is with anticipation & excitement that I release to you all, the new branding of my karts to Sera.

The Sera Kart is a continuation of our already successful Deadly brand which has been around for four years winning multiple National & State Championships in Australia, New Zealand & the USA. The karts will still be manufactured out of DPE Kart Technology in Melbourne, Australia using the highest quality parts.

The reason for the re branding? I wanted to incorporate my surname into the brand as it's been synonymous within the karting industry for nearly three decades and each one of my family members have played an integral part in our success.

As a family, we've been able to win an unprecedented 22 Australian Championships & over 100 State Championships.

The Sera X5 is coming, we'll let you make the choice.

A change is here.
