Lucas Auer is a Austrian based racing driver, currently competing in his debut season of the DTM with ART Grand Prix.[1] Auer is one of a number of DTM drivers to have earned his chance in the championship through the Formula 3 Euro Series.[1]

Current SeasonEdit

Auer wields the #22 Mercedes C-Coupé, run by ART Grand Prix alongside Gary Paffett.[1] Auer suffered a difficult debut in Hockenheim at the season opener, retiring from one race and failing to start the second.


After karting from the age of seven in 2001, Auer made his debut in racing cars in the JK Racing Asia Series, taking the championship at the first attempt in 2011.[1] Auer then opted to split his time between the German Formula 3 Series and the Toyota Racing Series in 2012, finishing as runner-up in the former.[1] He remained as an entrant in the TRS in 2013, while, in Europe, he made the step up into the Formula 3 Euro Series.[1]

3rd in the TRS for 2013 was combined with 4th in the Euro Series, with his efforts also rewarded with a one-off appearance in the World Endurance Championship.[1] Dropping his Toyota commitments allowed Auer to focus on the WEC as well as the Euro Series in 2014, a move which proved profitable for his career.[1] 4th place once again earned Auer a chance in the DTM with ART Grand Prix.[1]

DTM HistoryEdit

Auer was announced as a DTM driver on the 29th of January 2015, with his race number selected as #22.[2] After retiring from the first race at the 2015 DTM Festival after contact with Martin Tomczyk, Auer failed to start the second race of the weekend. Auer ran wide at the Sachskurve on his reconnaissance lap, ending up in the barrier and out of the race.
