Grandpa took the kids to race Scalatrix at Sugarloaf Mills in Atlanta. It was fun. Jacob remembered that the last time they went to this race track, Daddy and Mommy went to test drive a Porsche now known as June. 3 years ago: Continue reading Scalatrix
Jon’s did his first DE in 2017 at CMP. Unfortunately Jon registered late so another driver picked “his” number so Jon had to rely on his very limited craft skills. Note to self: in the future if #997 is not available, pick #11 Jon continued to gain experience at the track. Disaster struck on Sunday morning (snow!) so Jon decided to head home. Jon later … Continue reading Snow Day at CMP

Since I started karting, my dad had been telling me that very soon I will be faster than him. At the time I thought it was impossible but with practice I realize that it is possible. We went to LeMans Karting on daddy’s birthday (also the day of the LeMans 24-hour race). Dad let me wore his GoPro on my helmet to record my driving. I did … Continue reading I Beat Dad!

My dad and the other kid’s dad joined in on the last session of Bantam karting and I achieved … Continue reading Graduating to Big Boy’s Kart!

In May Jacob and Coco had their first go-karting experience at the NASCAR Speedpark in Sevierville, TN. Jon decided that it’s time for Jacob to get some racing experience with the Cadet Program at LeMans Karting. “Tiger-dad” … Continue reading Team Shum: The Next Generation
Jon is heading to the airport to picked up Cecilia and the kids! After a great holiday in Canada, Jon returned to work in South Carolina by himself first, while Cecilia and the kids stayed in Toronto for a few more weeks. “Empty nester” Jon took full advantage and was very active at the local car scene. After the long Canadian road trip, the GX … Continue reading A Busy Empty Nester
After June joined Team Shum, RocketS “Rocky” was to remain as Jon’s autocrosser. Unfortunately the unreasonably high insurance premiums made it impossible to keep him. Jon listed Rocky on Craigslist, and within 12 hours there were two potential buyers serious enough to want to see Rocky the same day! A showing was arranged with a family that very same afternoon. Jon spent the morning giving … Continue reading Goodbye Rocky
After his first DE at CMP, Jon is ready to tackle a “big track”. The PeachState PCA organized a DE event at Road Atlanta (in Braselton, GA) which is less than 2 hours away from home. Jon left home early on Saturday morning to arrive at the track in time for the morning meeting and tech inspection. Jon was again assigned a great instructor (Ed). … Continue reading Jon’s First Road Atlanta DE
