Land-Motorsport has their two cars for the upcoming ADAC GT Masters season, with several news items from the team.
There have been quite significant changes during the winter. It’s become somewhat of a habit of calling them Montaplast by Land-Motorsport in ADAC GT Masters, VLN, N24 and IMSA, but the title sponsor is no longer part of the team, so now it’s just known as Land-Motorsport.
There are changes to the driver line-up. Christopher Mies and Max Hofer continue from their 2019 lineup, but the pair will be split up for 2020.
Hofer will share #28 with Christopher Haase. Haase raced ADAC GT Masters for the team in 2017, while the Audi works driver has been placed in other teams since then. Hofer won the Junior Trophy in ADAC GT Masters in 2019 and was on the overall podium a total of four times with Mies.
Mies will be lead driver on car #29, with Kim-Luis Schramm joining him. Schramm has done a single season in ADAC GT Masters in 2018, where he shared a Mercedes at Team Zakspeed with Nicolai Sylvest. He moved to Phoenix Racing in the Blancpain series and VLN for 2019, racing an Audi R8 LMS for the first time. He can use that experience now and learn even more from one of the very best Audi works drivers, in the shape of Mies. Mies won the Championship for Land-Motorsport back in 2016, has continued to race for the team ever since, along with all his other Audi tasks.
The ADAC GT Masters 2020 is planned to start on the first weekend of August, but it might hit some delay due to German government decisions regarding events in Germany. There is a lot of work for the organizers, to find out if it will possible to take the cars back to the race tracks as soon possible.
