Team Gunston was a name used by Rhodesian racing driver John Love to enter his own cars in Formula One and sports car racing in South Africa between 1962 and 1975. He also entered cars under his own name, i.e. John Love. Commonly the vehicles were entered for Love himself, but he also provided cars for a number of other drivers during the period. In 1974 Team Gunston entered the South Africa GP held at Kyalami with drivers Ian Scheckter (Jody Scheckters elder brother) and Paddy Driver. After starting the race back in 22nd position Ian Scheckter managed to pull through the pack and after a few around him retired ended up finishing in 13th place.
