It’s been said before, but should be repeated often and loudly, that there needs to be more motorsport involving small, underpowered cars with little to no aerodynamic aids. Canada’s Nissan Micra Cup series fits the bill to a T. These cars are essentially showroom stock buzz boxes with just over 100 horsepower and tiny tires with little grip. Until this weekend, we’ve lamented that the series does not have any kind of video streaming package. Now, thanks to Nissan’s NISMO TV YouTube channel, you can catch the whole season with English commentary.

The world needs more racing series with pace cars that are significantly faster than the race cars. With a GT-R pacing a field of Micras, this series has that on lock.
