Ivan Peklin and Konstantin Gutsul to drive for Land-Motorsport in GTC Race


Land-Motorsport is continuing its presence in GTC Race for 2024 after successfully competing in the series in 2023. Two ambitious drivers, Ivan Peklin and Konstantin Gutsul, will be driving the team’s Audi R8 LMS GT3 this season. The pair of Ukrainians have already shown what they are capable of in Audi machinery.

“We look forward to welcoming Ivan and Konstantin to our team,” said team manager Christian Land. “Both have a lot of experience in a variety of championships with a mix of cars. They fit right in here at Land-Motorsport and give us a great platform to take on the coming season.”

For Peklin, the Audi R8 LMS is nothing new, as the 22-year-old has already raced the GT4 version of the car in the series. “I can’t wait for the season to being and am sure that we will be very successful,” he said. “My first impressions of Land-Motorsport were very positive. I know that the team are professionals and they take work very seriously, both the preparation of the car and drivers”.

Peklin’s teammate Gutsul will be making his debut in GT racing this season. His previous motorsport experience is based around the TCR category, including a season in the Italian championship racing an Audi RS3 LMS.

Land-Motorsport is once again helping two drivers climb the motorsport ladder, as Land explains: “Our wealth of experience and expert crew are the perfect backdrop to making our drivers feel comfortable and develop their skills.”
