The 5th and 6th rounds of the inaugural Nissan Micra Cup will take place this weekend at Circuit Mont-Tremblant, and Auto123.com’s Mathieu St-Pierre will compete behind the wheel of media car No. 23. These two races will pit 26 drivers against each other on the legendary track, and when all is said and done the first half of the season will be in the books.
So far, Quebec’s Olivier Bédard is leading the drivers’ championship, six points ahead of Thanaroj Tanasotnitike from Taiwan. Valérie Chiasson, the first woman to reach the podium at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, is currently sitting in fourth place, just behind Alberta’s Stefan Rzadzinski.
