DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – AFS/PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports has added Roberto Gonzalez and Nick Boulle to the team’s driver lineup for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype class this season.
Gonzalez will join full time drivers Gustavo Yacaman and Sebastian Saavedra for all four rounds of the Patron North American Endurance Cup, and Boulle will complete the four-driver line-up for the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“I’m really looking forward to having Roberto and Nick in the AFS/PR1 Mathiasen car, they have both proven to be fast and reliable drivers and they know what it takes to win a 24-hour race,” said Gary Peterson, co-team principal. “They will be a great addition to our lineup with Sebastian and Gustavo, I cant wait to finally see everyone this weekend and get this season started.”
An ex-IndyCar driver, Gonzalez also brings ample sportscar experience to the table, having competed in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2017 in the LMP2 class, and in various events in IMSA in the PC class over the last few seasons.
Boulle is no stranger to the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The 28-year-old already has one class win under his belt, capturing the checkered flag in 2017, and also finished second in 2016 in the PC category.
“I’m super excited to be back at the Rolex 24 at Daytona — even more so to be with the strong AFS/PR1 Mathiasen squad,” said Boulle. “The race this year is going to be spectacular and I couldn’t be more excited to test our strength against some of the best drivers from around the world. I’m excited to get to the Roar with all my co-drivers to get acclimated before the race and get our car to the front.”
