“What an unprecedented weekend. Running eight cars with over 12 drivers and an unbelievable staff supporting this effort. I can’t thank the entire team and crew for all the hard work to pull this off. With over 30 personnel supporting eight cars, we had multiple wins, podiums and a lot of success. A big part of that was Porsche Motorsport. I am very happy with the results but thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie and the competition with my friends, who also happen to be my clients. That’s half the fun in racing; spending time with fellow competitors you enjoy racing with.”
Zac Anderson, Driver, No. 7 NOLASPORT Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
“Amazing, amazing, amazing weekend. My first race weekend at Sonoma and the NOLASPORT / OGH Porsche 718 Cayman Clubsport was so balanced it made it possible for us to come away with two class victories and a second even in the low grip conditions. To accomplish that as a team with my friends and sponsors from Trattore Farms cheering us on was just incredible.”
