About the Nissan Micra Cup racing series, it is expected more than 25 Micra vehicles will compete on each race weekend which will include two hours of track time consisting of a 30-minute trial, a 30-minute qualifying session and two 30-minute races.  Nissan said:

The Nissan Micra Cup will offers drivers the opportunity to race on some of the most well-known race tracks in Quebec, with the potential to expand to other provinces in 2016 and beyond.
