The Nissan Micra Cup’s third and fourth races of a 2016 deteriorate will take place during a Circuit Mont-Tremblant, for a normal Spring Classic competition weekend.

It’s a mystic lapse for a Nissan Micra Cup family, as it was on this lane in a Laurentians where all started final year, with dual races that introduced an sparkling new array to a universe of Canadian motorsport.  Since then, array drivers have had a eventuality to disturb spectators and denote a qualities of a flexible and most batch Nissan Micra S cars during many other tracks.

Following a initial dual races of a 2016 deteriorate during Calabogie Motorsports Park on May 14th and 15th, Quebecker Xavier Coupal (Albi Nissan Team), leads a drivers’ championship forward of Albertan Stefan Rzadzinski (Ici Pneu Team).
