    Micra Cup at Motorama show, March 11-13

    TORONTO, ON // MARCH 4, 2016

    The fast-growing Nissan Micra Cup road racing series will make its Ontario motorsports show debut with an appearance at the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by Mothers. The show takes place March 11, 12 & 13 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

    Visitors to the Nissan Micra Cup display at Motorama will have the opportunity to get an up-close look at a typical, race-ready Micra Cup car. The booth will also feature a video detailing the series’ inaugural year. Jacques Deshaies, former ASQ President and technical advisor Gilles Villeneuve, and several Nissan corporate representatives will also be on hand to answer questions.

    I went to motorama today. After seeing the cars there it is easy to believe that any engine swap is possible. Here is a few pics of the free swag I scored and a few cars enjoy....

    The micra cup may have life with factory support after next season. Here is a video with nismo USA boss Mike who hints of morphing the series over to the next generation and the excitement of the success of the current series.

    Hm... A hint of expanding the series internationally with the gen 5 Micra.

    Dumb question of the day: are there any other countries currently running a Micra Cup, or is it only Canada?

    They run something called copa nissan march in Columbia. Very similar but I don't know if the rules are the same I've been told by Nissan they are different cars so it must be the rules unless they have a three cylinder because they look the same.

    Interesting. Well, I don't think they sell a triple March/Micra in the western hemisphere.
