DALLAS, Oct. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nick Boulle of de Boulle, an independent jewelry salon in Dallas and Houston, makes his first foray into the Indianapolis 8-hour Presented by AWS on Sunday, October 17th. Boulle joins Earl Bamber Motorsport (EBM) with a new driver line up including AM driver Adrian D'Silva and experienced endurance driver Jeff Kingsley in the Porsche 911 GT3R.
"I am thrilled to be back in a racecar, even better a Porsche 911 GT3R," said Nick Boulle. "Like many in the sport, COVID changed my sponsorship model. To be able to get back to driving at Indianapolis - the Brickyard - is a dream for me. We have a very strong squad for the weekend with co-drivers Adrian D'Silva and Jeff Kingsley. I'm ready."
This will be EBM's first attempt at the Indianapolis 8 Hour as the team makes their introductory appearance in an IGTC race in the United States.
