Last weekend of April, Jacob arrives at the Shannonville Motorsport Park in Ontario to give race cars a try for the first time. Exclusive Autosport rented the track for a couple of days for the team to practice in preparation for the upcoming 2017 season. Jacob hopped into one of the spare cars to see if racing was something that he could handle. It was a huge learning curve but Jacob quickly got up to speed keeping with the teams #1 and #2 drivers. This caught the eye of team owner Michael Duncalfe who wanted Jacob to sign on as a team driver by the end of the weekend.
