The Nissan Micra Cup unveils its revised 2020 race schedule

This year, nearly 30 drivers are expected to race in the Micra Cup season, which will begin at Circuit Mont-Tremblant on July 24-26.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – The Nissan Micra Cup will kick off its sixth season next month. The series, which has been a fixture on the Canadian motorsport scene since 2015, is one of the first in the country to release its official 2020 race schedule, which is filled with exciting events that will thrill fans and competitors. This year, nearly 30 drivers are expected to race in the Micra Cup season, which will begin at Circuit Mont-Tremblant on July 24-26. Additionally, highlights from the Micra Cup races will be broadcasted on RDS television network, a first for the Nissan Micra Cup.

Since its inception in 2015, the series has welcomed dozens of drivers, most of them racing novices, to experience the thrill and excitement of motorsports. Some of them have left their mark by earning titles and victories, but all of them have immensely enjoyed the atmosphere and the pleasure of driving these nimble, almost stock Nissan Micra’s on Canada’s grueling race tracks.

The 2020 season took longer to organize due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The season will consist of four events with two rounds each. “We have worked hard in the recent months to ensure that the 2020 season will be just as exciting as the previous ones. Of course, the safety of our drivers, teams and staff are our priority, and we will respect the health and safety standards that will be put in place by the track owners to the letter,” says Jacques Deshaies of JD Promotion & Compétition, the promoter of the Nissan Micra Cup.

“The drivers are looking forward to some intense competition! I’ve rarely seen such enthusiasm. Drivers want to have fun and the Nissan Micra Cup – with its low cost of entry – is definitely the series that offers them the best fun-to-cost ratio! We expect to have 24 to 25 drivers at the first event, and probably about 30 at the Grand Prix du Canada1 later in the season,” says Deshaies.

The Summer Classic at Circuit Mont-Tremblant on July 24-26 will mark the start of the season before the series moves to Calabogie Motorsports Park, southwest of Ottawa on August 28-30. Following the Ontario event, competitors will enjoy competing at the Grand Prix du Canada1 and the season will conclude with the Fall Classic at Circuit Mont-Tremblant on September 24-26.
