Team Shum got off to a great start with Jon’s 17th-place at Laguna Seca.

Jacob soon achieved TeamShum’s first top-10, with a hard-fought 10th-place at COTA!

Unfortunately those were the only point scoring finishes. Driver errors, accidents, and mechanical issues (broken gas pedal) meant there is still much work to do.

Series 3 sees the return of the challenging 911 Cup Car. Jon persevered in the hour-long races and finished in the points in 3 of the 4 races he entered:
