MISSISSAUGA (Ontario) – La Coupe Nissan Micra a tenu son deuxième événement de la saison 2019 la fin de semaine dernière au Calabogie Motorsports Park, au sud-ouest d'Ottawa.

Les 2 courses de la Coupe Nissan Micra qui se sont déroulées samedi et dimanche ont été marquées par une série de premières :  Kevin King a remporté ses deux premières victoires de la saison 2019, tandis qu'Austin Riley, le premier coureur autiste du Canada, a remporté son premier podium depuis son arrivée dans la série en 2017.

Les fans peuvent consulter tous les faits saillants de la fin de semaine dans le dernier numéro du magazine Coupe Nissan Micra (ci-joint) et dans le communiqué de synthèse complet ici.
