Building a premiere racing experience for drivers and racing fans

The Nissan Micra Cup is Canada’s most affordable racing series, giving many Canadians the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a racecar, something that many wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience. Whether it’s the empty nester who is taking up a hobby, or a hardcore racing fan looking to get into the action, the Micra Cup offers something for everyone.

"We’re excited for drivers and racing fans alike to experience the fun that’s in store in the fourth year of the Micra Cup," said Jacques Deshaies, owner of JD Promotion & Compétition and the series promoter. "With an effort to bring the country’s most affordable racing series to Ontario and Quebec with three events each, we are looking forward to putting on a show for racing fans and helping prospective drivers realize a dream.”
