Michelin Cup ZA - Gauteng

Post by FT_86_SM_GP » Sun Dec 18, 2016 10:21 pm

Registrations for the 2017 Michelin Cup season are now open:
http://www.michelincup.co.za/Home/Registrations

Register before 20th December 2016 and qualify for an early bird special (2016 registration fee),
Thereafter the normal 2017 fee will apply,
Entries close 15th January 2017!

This is in my opinion the best form of Social / 'Club' Racing Championship/Cup that Gauteng and South Africa has to offer,

In the 2016 season there were a few Honda's /Type R's that waved the Honda flag high,

It would be great seeing more Type R's this year(2017) to match up on the Strip/Track/Gymkhana events against other clubs and manufacturers,

If you would like to know more about the Cup,
You can read up on the website (link provided above) and the 'Michelin Cup ZA' facebook page.

Cheers

There were allot of Honda guys that joined as Daily participants at the ODI event in the 2016 season,
The facilities and management/control over the ODI event was poor,
As a result the Michelin Cup will no longer hosting any Strip events at ODI,

So give the Cup a chance and other events if you came through to that event and did not have the best experience :-)

The full calendar will be published early next year (2017),

The provisional dates are as follows:
December 2017 - Registrations

January - R1 Dyno
February - R2 Red Star Raceway
March - R3 Drag 400m
April - Social Breakfast Run
April - R4 VKC
May - R5 Zwartkops
July - R6 Gymkhana
August - R7 Strip Event(possibly 200m)
September – R8 Head to Head
October – Year End Prize Giving


Costing Estimates:
Dyno: Members - R250 4wd, R200 rwd/fwd. Non members - R350 4wd, R300 rwd/fwd.
Tarlton: R200
ODI: R310
VKC - R350
Midvaal: R550 for track day + timing
Zwatkops: R550 for track day + timing
Red Star: R650
Skidpan: R360
Tar Rally: R200

Let me know if you guys have any questions regarding the Cup and events,
