GP3 driver Juan Manuel Correa will contest the Toyota Racing Series at the start of next year with M2 Competition.

The Ecuadorian American driver spent much of 2017 in ADAC Formula 4 with Prema after winning three races with the team in the Italian series last year.

He moved into GP3 however with Jenzer Motorsport in time for the Spa round at the end of August.

At M2 in TRS he will join up with his former Prema team-mate Marcus Armstrong, who has confirmed he will return to his domestic series to aim for the title.

“I am excited to do TRS this year, as I’ve heard many great things about it from other drivers,” said 18-year-old Correa.

“I think it’s probably the most complete option any driver has, to maintain a racing form during the long off season.

“I’m sure the racing will be great and I’m also looking forward to being in New Zealand for the first time!”

Correa heads to TRS in the wake of Jenzer GP3 team manager Nicolas Caillol taking on the role of category co-manager.

Frenchman Caillol has engineered for M2 previously, guiding Nick Cassidy and Lando Norris to the series title in 2013 and 2016 respectively.
