If you’re a fan of car racing in general and the Nissan Micra Cup in particular, or if you just want to make for a very happy Dad this Father’s Day, take note of the “Discovery Experience” event taking place at the ICAR circuit in Mirabel, Quebec this coming Sunday, June 18.
Thirty lucky participants will be joined by a driver from the Nissan Micra Cup series in one of the racing circuit’s cars for a driving experience that is exhilarating while remaining steadfastly safe. Drivers taking part in the special Father’s Day event include 2016 season champion Xavier Coupal, 2015 season winner Olivier Bédard and last year’s overall fifth-place finisher Valérie Limoges.
After an off-course instruction session, participants will have the chance to drive one of the cars used in the Nissan Micra Cup – equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission – around the track accompanied by one of the professional drivers. This will be followed up by an exhilarating lap around the circuit as a passenger in a 2017 Nissan GT-R supercar driven by a professional racer.
Cost for the event is $295 (taxes not included) for a 20-minute on-track session. As mentioned, only 30 spots are available, so don’t delay!
The “Discovery Experience” event is being presented by JD Promotion and Compétition with the support of Total Canada. For more information or to register for the event, visit the website of the Nissan Micra Cup.
