1998/99 –These years showed handfuls of podium positions in the Porsche Championship which was a particularly competitive series, having to qualify to reach an oversubscribed grid. Still realizing the challenge of the series, Shaun decided to have one more attempt at this championship, with his much loved Porsche.

Shaun was sure he was ready to move on, although leaving the Porsche’s without a championship went against the grain. He decided to move onto Euro-cars which, at the time were a high profile series and one of Britain’s premier events. On his first outing in the Euro-car, he bagged 5th place against the series regulars which he improved on his second meeting by achieving a podium finish. Shaun battled all season long, determined to win the championship despite being a rookie to the series he had many podium finishes. But a handful of mechanical problems robbed him of winning the championship which meant the tally at the end of the season earned him4th in the championship.

2002 –Ascar (European Nascar) series was growing and gaining respect. Shaun decided this was the challenge that he needed to conquer and, in order to do combat in this unique discipline, Shaun decided to first get involved in a team to learn the car set up and the principles behind driving these Super Speedway ovals .He then rented a car for a one off drive and finished 11th against some of the best.
