Lucas Auer will race in the series for the third time.
His previous two TRS campaigns in 2013 & 2013 produced a sixth and third place finish in the championship and he will start the 2019 championship as a firm favourite for the title.
His career has progressed impressively since his most recent campaign in New Zealand and has included the post-Hungarian Grand Prix mid-season Formula One test for Force India in 2017 and a full season in the spectacular DTM series in Germany as a factory Mercedes driver in 2018.
Part of the works Mercedes racing programme, Auer is regarded as one of the best up and coming drivers in racing today and has competed successfully in a wide range of formulae, including European Formula 3 and Blancpain GT as well as the high profile DTM series.
