2023/2024 deBoulle Magazine

THURSDAY “All smiles here at Watkins Glen In- ternational, despite a tough first day getting through some teething issues in the Porsche Carrera Cup car. We’ll have it sorted for Qualifying tomor- row morning and find out where a new set of tires puts us. Quali session goes green at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. Race 1 is at 1:20 pm, for 40 minutes.”

FRIDAY “First race in the Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America is done & dusted. Ended up in position 14 of 20 in the Pro Class. I have a long way to go but loving my first rip in the car and the competitive field. Every session gets easier as we learn the tricky car, so we’ll see how we end up! We also have 40 minutes for race 2, which starts at 12:20 pm.”

SUNDAY “My first run in the 992 Porsche GT3 Cup car wrapped up with race 2 yesterday. The results aren’t there yet, but we know what needs to happen next. We knew it would not be easy jumping in for a first round at Watkins Glen midway through the season, so we’ll push to move it for- ward, next round. Looking forward to another weekend in the Porsche Carrera Cup soon and getting some more laps behind the wheel. Big thanks to de Boulle, de Boulle Motor - sports, John Mossey, Trevor Andrus- ko, 762 Motorsports, Harris Levitas, TPC Racing and the crew for all of their support this weekend!” In late September, more than 90,000 passionate car fans gathered in Mon- terey, California, over four days to thrill to classics, newly minted leg- ends — like the all-new 911 GT3 R Rennsport — and racing. The hook? It’s was all Porsche, all the time. Held at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and billed as the world’s largest gathering of Porsche race cars and drivers, the Rennsport Reunion is called “a time when new and long- time Porsche enthusiasts, owners and collectors stand shoulder to shoulder with renowned drivers and legendary engineers. A place where new-vehicle reveals and some of the rarest Porsche models ever made are found just steps away from exciting racing action, e-sports, fan zones and meet-and- greets with living icons.” Nick Boulle drove in two races with MDK Motorsports in the No. 3 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, competing in the Pro Class. In the first race, Boulle finished 14th in his class, moving up from 20th at the start. In the second, he started 18th and moved up to 12th, briefly af- ter the start, before being forced off the track and having to recover, finishing a hard-won 18th. In its seventh installment, the Rennsport Reunion celebrated the cars, people and moments at the heart of the Porsche experience. It was a weekend for the books — four days filled with iconic Porsche vehicles and drivers, including one we happen to be quite familiar with.
