Clinching victory in the final round of 2023, André Kursim and his Don’t Touch Racing team are determined to build on their success. With a blend of skill and ambition, Kursim sets his sights on more wins and podiums this season.

After finishing third in class in 2023, John Newell embarks on his second full season in the Goodyear FIA ETRC. With a growing confidence and determination, the British racer aims to improve his performance and establish himself as a regular contender for class victories.

Returning with T Sport Bernau, Spanish champion Antonio Albacete, who secured a fourth-place finish in 2023 alongside several podiums, prepares for the upcoming season. Leveraging his experience and track record, Albacete is ready to launch a challenge for more wins and podium finishes.

A hot favourite in the Chrome class, German tankpool24-racing driver Steffen Faas aims to build on his success from last season and will gun for glory in 2024.

Looking to improve on his sixth-place finish in class last year, Clemens Hecker brings a hunger for success and ambition to the championship. With several podiums under his belt, the German racer aims to make his presence felt on the grid and challenge for top honours.

After winning the European Young Drivers Title and the Promoter’s Cup last year, José Eduardo Rodrigues is ready to continue his success and challenge for top honours once again.

Steffi Halm returns with the German Schwabentruck outfit, piloting her iconic orange Iveco truck. With a few podium appearances and close battles last season, Halm is eager to continue her momentum into 2024.

Spaniard Luis Recuenco joins the field with an overhauled Iveco, determined to continue his success in the championship. After securing his first-ever overall victory last season, Recuenco is eager to build on his achievements and secure more silverware this year.

Making his second full season appearance, Mark Taylor is determined to build on the lessons learned from his debut year and sets his sights on more success in 2024.

A familiar face joins the full-season lineup this year, as Luke Garrett makes his debut as a full-season driver. With experience and success from racing in the British Championship and his race-by-race entries in the Goodyear FIA ETRC in 2021, Garrett is familiar with the demands of competitive truck racing. Building on his past achievements, the British driver is determined to make his mark in the European series.
