Nick Catsburg and Augusto Farfus are set to drive for BRC Racing Team alongside series champion Gabriele Tarquini and Norbert Michelisz.[1][2] To meet series regulations the team will be split into two entities of two cars with Tarquini and Michelisz racing under the BRC Hyundai N Squadra Corse banner, while Farfus and Catsburg will race under the BRC Hyundai N Lukoil Racing Team banner.[33] Farfus last raced in the series in 2010 while Catsburg last raced in the series in 2017.

2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship and 2018 TCR Scandinavia Touring Car Championship winner Johan Kristoffersson is set to make series debut driving Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR, prepared by Sébastien Loeb Racing joining Robert Huff and Mehdi Bennani.[15] Benjamin Leuchter was announced as the fourth driver for the team on 30 January 2018.[16]

Néstor Girolami will make his series comeback joining ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport alongside Esteban Guerrieri, replacing Yann Ehrlacher.[17] The team also scaled down to two cars as the series' rules do not allow teams to run more than two cars. Timo Scheider, who drove for the team during the second half of the 2018 season, left the series, but will keep his association with the team in the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

After making one-off appearances for Boutsen Ginion Racing in 2018, Ma Qing Hua is set to make his full season return with Team Mulsanne, joining Kevin Ceccon, who drove for the team during the second half of the 2018 season.[19][20]

2018 ADAC TCR Germany third-place finisher Niels Langeveld is set to join Audi Sport Team Comtoyou joining Frédéric Vervisch, while Gordon Shedden and Jean-Karl Vernay will remain with Audi Sport Leopard Team WRT.[8] The second team entered by Comtoyou – Comtoyou Racing – will switch from Audi RS 3 LMS TCR to CUPRA León TCR as the series do not allow more than four cars per manufacturer. Aurélien Panis will remain the team[9] and will be joined by Tom Coronel, who moves from Boutsen Ginion Racing while keeping his association with the team in the TCR Europe Touring Car Series.[34][35] Denis Dupont, who raced for Audi Sport Team Comtoyou last season, will remain with the Comtoyou team in the 2019 TCR Europe Touring Car Series, but he confirmed withdrawal from the TCR Europe Touring Car Series on the 17 April.[36][37]

2018 TCR Europe Touring Car Series teams' winners KCMG will enter the series, replacing Boutsen Ginion Racing, who later switched to the TCR Europe Touring Car Series, as the second Honda team. Tiago Monteiro will join the team alongside Attila Tassi, the 2017 TCR International Series runner-up and 4th placed in the 2018 TCR Europe Touring Car Series.[7] Josh Files, who drove for the team in the 2018 TCR Europe Touring Car Series, left the team to join Target Competition in the same series.[38]

2018 TCR Scandinavia Touring Car Championship teams' winners PWR Racing will enter the series with support from Comtoyou Racing, replacing Campos Racing as the second CUPRA team.[4] 2018 TCR Europe Touring Car Series winner Mikel Azcona and 2018 TCR Scandinavia Touring Car Championship third-place finisher and team co-owner Daniel Haglöf will drive for the team.[6] Campos Racing drivers – Pepe Oriola and John Filippi – left the series with Oriola joining Indigo Racing in the TCR Asia Series, while Filippi will race for Vuković Motorsport in the TCR Europe Touring Car Series.[39][40] Zengő Motorsport, which also ran CUPRA cars last season, also switched to TCR Europe Touring Car Series.[6][29] DG Sport Compétition will also switch to TCR Europe Touring Car Series with Aurélien Comte after Peugeot Sport reduced its support for the 308 TCR.[6][41] Maťo Homola left the team to join Target Competition in the TCR Europe Touring Car Series.[42]

Mid-season changes[edit]

Augusto Farfus will skip the Guia Race of Macau due to clashing commitments with FIA GT World Cup held on the same weekend. As the series do not allow drivers race in different event held at the same weekend, he will be replaced at BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Racing Team by Luca Engstler, who had previously raced as wildcard entry at the Slovakiaring for Hyundai Team Engstler.[3]
