Career[edit]

After karting, Serenelli raced in Formula Ford in his native Venezuela, winning his first title in 2000. After racing in the Italian Formula Renault Championship in 2001, he reclaimed the Formula Ford title in 2002.

In 2007 he finished runner-up in the Formula Renault Panam GP series, with two wins from the nine races. In 2008 he won the LATAM Challenge Series, and after finishing runner-up in 2009 he won the title again in both 2010 and 2011.

In 2012 he returned to European competition, signing to race in the Auto GP World Series for Ombra Racing.[1] He also signed to race in the GP2 Series with new team Venezuela GP Lazarus, where his team-mate was first Fabrizio Crestani and then Sergio Canamasas. After nine rounds of the championship, he was replaced by René Binder.[2]

He signed with Belardi Auto Racing to make his debut in the Firestone Indy Lights series at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in August 2013. He continued with the team, competing in the final four races of the season and finished 10th in points. His best finish was three seventh place finishes in the final three races.
