Nocera began his car racing career by driving in the Italian Formula Renault Championship championship in 2003; also competing in one race of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0. For 2004 he stayed in the Italian series, but only finished twentieth in the drivers' championship in both this and the previous year.
Nocera first raced in the Italian Formula Three Championship in 2004. Staying with the Lucidi Motors team throughout his time in this formula, he finished thirteenth overall in his first year and improved to third place in the standings in 2005. Following an unsuccessful foray into the Formula Three Euroseries in 2006, Nocera returned to Italy for 2007 and won the F3 championship at his third attempt.
Nocera was recruited by the BCN Competicion team to drive for them in the 2008 GP2 Series season. However, he was released after one round of the championship in favour of Adrián Vallés, who had himself been replaced at Fisichella's GP2 team by Adam Carroll.
Formula Renault 3.5 Series
It was announced on August 25, 2008, that Nocera had signed for RC Motorsport in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, replacing British driver Duncan Tappy who had encountered budget problems. After a further two rounds of the championship, Tappy returned to the seat, and Nocera has not raced since.
