Jake is the freshly crowned 2023 Emzone RCC Champion and was the 2022 Toyo Tires F1600 Champion. Jake’s 2023 season was phenomenal, with seven P1 finishes and five P2 finishes in 12 races.

Jake was selected for the 2022 Team Canada Scholarship and competed for Team Canada in England at Brands Hatch and Silverstone!
