Team MONTAPLAST by Land-Motorsport starts with a highlight in the 2018 motorsport season: The Roar Before and Rolex 24 At Daytona are on the calendar in January. As in the 2017 season, the team will be competing in the GTD class with an Audi R8 LMS.

When the engines for ‘The Roar Before the Rolex 24’ are launched at the Daytona International Speedway on Friday the No. 29 of the MONTAPLAST by Land-Motorsport team will be back in the starting grid of the GTD class. The team already presented the Audi R8 LMS named ‘Peggy Sue’ in a winning new design at Road Atlanta. Not new to the team, but Kelvin van der Linde and Sheldon van der Linde will be new to the Daytona rider line-up. They will share the cockpit in Daytona with Christopher Mies and Jeffrey Schmidt. Mies and Schmidt were already at the first Daytona start for MONTAPLAST by Land-Motorsport.
