    Oh my. So much for Micra Cup being "inexpensive"! NASCAR ain't got nothing on this.

    Fortunately, I read a report that said "no serious injuries" - though one racer went to hospital with soreness in her back.

    Jalopnik posted an item about the crash. Lots of armchair analysis in the many comments...

    So the micra cup has started with a bang well a few bangs actually in a weekend that was cold wet and wild. I got to see a much different side of the Micra Cup series this weekend as I was helping the tech crew and parts trucks. The biggest bang for me was getting rip around Calabogie in a Nissan maxima platinum pace car being driven by the micra cup director Gilles. This guy has driven the pace car at the f1 in montreal for the last fifteen years. He can drive anything including helecopters and aircraft very well. I just grabbed the holy sh#t handle and giggled the whole way around. The other two big thing for me were the learning about this series from inside the tech trailer all of the crew are very experienced around racing for many years and are very good at running a tight ship but at the same time are great guys. The rain tire has put out a statement with the micra cup cars turning laps a full two seconds( which is huge in racing) a lap faster than the Porsche 944 cup cars and in some cases only one second slower than the slick is the statement... amazing! This tire is four pounds heavier than the slick but loses three pounds after one qualification and one race and is pretty much toast.
