LUCAS AUER to Bavariasports
"I'm thrilled to be driving in New Zealand. Together with Remus, this is a great way to stay in shape in a dead motor sport month in Europe in New Zealand, and to prepare well for the future tasks in the Super Formula. I will spend Christmas and New Year at home. And then it's all over again - which makes me very happy. "
