de Boulle Motorsports Nick Boulle and the Park Place Motorsports team is prepped and ready to be back together racing in the Michelin Endurance Championship’s third round at this weekend’s Sahlen’s 6 Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International. Only weeks ago both Boulle and Park Place Motorsports team principal and driver, Patrick Lindsey, were at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Boulle claimed a 12th place class finish and Lindsey claimed a huge 24 Hours of Le Mans victory.
The #73 Park Place Motorsports de Boulle 2019 Porsche GT3R will feature the same trio from Sebring with Boulle and Lindsey alongside Porsche factory ace, Patrick Long. The Watkins Glen 6 Hours takes place in beautiful upstate New York and was recently repaved with asphalt now known for its smoothness and high grip.
Nick Boulle: “I’m just really excited to get back in the Porsche GT3R with Park Place Motorsports. I know several guys have been with the team since my last round in Sebring, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how they’ve developed it. Every round with ‘The Patricks’ has been really good and I feel like we have just kind of been waiting for everything to come together. Hopefully Watkins Glen can be that weekend for us. Both the Porsche Factory Ace Pat and the Le Mans winner Pat are great teammates and so I’m looking forward to showing what we can do together this weekend!”
