Coach Dave Factory Launches Ahead Of The SRO Season!

It’s happening. We are going racing.

Many of you are aware of Coach Dave Academy and Coach Dave Delta but almost nobody is aware of what we have coming next as it’s been kept close to our chest for a while.

The Official Coach Dave Factory Esports Team!

What’s quite funny is that if you had asked Dave or anyone at the Academy about having an official esports team before this year began they would have laughed. But fate had it that an esports team would be created and created in style it was!

Of course, it goes without question due to Dave being an official Ferrari driver the team will be racing the Ferrari 296 GT3 and they secured an OEM spot into the 2024 SRO IGTC Endurance Series in the Pro class.

“I am happy we finally have an esports team and look forward to taking a completely different approach to racing compared to our competitors.” Said David Perel, the founder of Coach Dave Academy.

Now let’s meet the team!

Coach Dave Factory Team Manager

Alleric Enslin

At the head of the table for the team is Alleric Enslin aka ‘Ulti’. Ulti goes way back for Coach Dave Academy as the companies first official full time test driver and has been with the company in various positions for many years now.

Ulti may not be behind a wheel anymore as he hung his racing gloves up last year, but he has a wealth of experience racing in top level competitions as a driver and team manager. Through the years he’s raced for the likes of Virtual Drivers by TX3, VRacer, Tauro and Rocket Simsport.

In 2023 Ulti was approached by Into The Breach Esports to start their sim racing team and they had a very successful year until Dave came to destroy that relationship and put him in a Ferrari. Forza…

Coach Dave Factory Drivers

Hubert Szymanski 

Hubert has been in the Coach Dave Academy stable for the last 16 months or so, joining at the beginning of 2023 as a test driver and being a fundamental part of the team who creates the setups you all know and love.

Before joining CDA, Hubert competed at the highest level of ACC competitions through 2021 and 2022 racing in SimGrids Endurance Cup Competitions with SOP Esports Racing.

Hubert also had a YouTube channel where he would share his ACC setups and knowledge as well as stream league and daily races with his most popular setup video reaching 30k views. 

David Pertile & Amedeo Castorino 

This duo really need no introduction to the world of ACC racing. David and Amedeo are the reigning SRO IGTC Silver Class Champions and are somewhat Aston Martin specailists!

What you might not know is David and Amedeo both started working for Coach Dave Academy as part of the setup team in May 2023, alongside their own racing commitments as drivers in the competitive Team Racing Point Esports team.

Most recently David and Amedeo finished 4th overall in this years edition of the Virtual Endurance Masters by LFM but now it’s time for a new challenge.

They will join Hubert to make the main trio and core of the factory team and they will need to get themselves up to speed in the Ferrari 296 GT3. But we have no doubts they will transfer that Aston Martin pace over and be competing at the front in 2024.

Looking Ahead To The 2024 Season

The teams first objective for 2024 is to tackle the SRO IGTC Endurance Series. The calendar will take the team to Suzuka, Spa, Indianapolis, Red Bull Ring, Monza and the Nordschleife.

This weekend is round 1 at Suzuka and it’s already been a positive start to the championship, making the top 20 overall in pre qualifying during the week, to participate in main qualifying today, which will decide the teams starting position for the race tomorrow.

Whilst each race will be a learning experience, the team is hopeful of a strong campaign. So make sure you jump on the official SRO YouTube channel to show your support for the guys.
