Autodealer representing at Michelin Cup Challenge

08.04.2015

The Michelin Cup Challenge (MCC) is an event sponsored by Michelin South Africa in collaboration with the Audi Owners Club of South Africa and the Renault Sport Club of South Africa. It puts challenges from both brands against one another in a different event every month.

Our own editor Sean Nurse is participating in the challenge. The first event was held on 14th of March at Dastek Dyno in Pretoria. The overall winner was Philip Opperman, driver of a 569 horsepower Audi RS3. The inaugural Dyno Day was well supported by 57 vehicles doing power runs of which 42 were MCC competitors and 15 members from various car clubs

The event was first created in 2012, to provide an affordable racing experience for the average person who wanted to show off their talent. The event was given a revamp when Audi Club SA joined the Renault Sports Club SA in 2015, as co-hosts. These two clubs changed the format of the original Dyno event, so that a competitor’s power run was used for scoring for the overall event, and to determine classification. The reason behind the new format was to make it more competitive for the drivers and more exciting for the supporters watching the event. Drivers need to focus on speed, as each event in the MCC series is scored based on fastest times.

The second event is on 18th of April 2015 at the Vereeniging Karting Circuit Gymkhana, and there will be a competition every month until October, culminating in a year-end prize giving.
