Canadian Tire Motorsport Park hosted the first of six race weekends on Victoria Day weekend.

The May long weekend marked the beginning of the 2017 season for the Nissan Micra Cup. The first race  took place at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP), which is located east of Toronto, Ontario.

This year, the Nissan Micra Cup will host two race weekends in Ontario and four in Quebec. Two races will be on the schedule at each race weekend, for a total of 12 races.

A large number of drivers who took part in the series last year are returning to the track again this season, as are nearly a dozen new additions. This year, the Nissan Micra Cup will see the creation of the senior category, reserved for drivers 40 years and older. A second podium will be dedicated to this category and winners will be awarded prizes provided by Nissan Parts and Accessories.

Registration for the contest is available on the Nissan Micra Cup website at micracup.com/eventregistration. While the contest is already closed for the first race weekend, there is still time to register for the second race weekend at the Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Québec, which is taking place the following week.
