Former Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona Champion, Nick Boulle— of de Boulle, an independent fine jeweler here in Houston and Dallas, is part of Jackie Chan DC Racing’s lineup for next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world’s oldest active sports car race for endurance racing and is held annually since 1923 near Le Mans, France.
“To say that I am excited to be racing with Jackie Chan DC Racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is an understatement,” exclaimed Boulle. “Le Mans has a huge place in racing history and is one of the greatest single sporting events there is – period.” We are excited to say that Nick placed 8th in the ultra-competitive LMP2 category.
“These moments will be with me forever, and I will never forget the fact that I was able to live out a childhood dream,” said Boulle. “It didn’t really set in until around my second time in the car as I drove up until just before night fall. I had this surreal moment as the sun has just set and I saw that I really was driving through the Porsche curves of the Circuit de La Sarthe at 155mph in darkness.”
de Boulle jewelry located in River Oaks District is a Houston destination for fine jewelry and they are thrilled for Nick’s accomplishment. To make Boulle’s debut possible, de Boulle Motorsports partnered with several prominent companies: Concepta Labs, Dallas Auto Exchange, Hydro Carbon Exchange and Meridian Veterinary Capital. Which shows the families continuous interest and support in the community and charitable organizations.
Naturally, his sponsors are only the finest in jewelry and luxury watch brands. He’s sure to be the most stylish driver out on the track, decked out in exquisite timepieces from the likes of Patek Philippe and Rolex.
