Michelin Cup 2016

Michelin Cup Logo

The Michelin Cup Challenge is a year-long series organised by the Renault Sport Club of South Africa and the Audi Club of South Africa running under title sponsorship of Michelin SA (who came on board in 2014). The event was started in 2012 by true enthusiasts to create an affordable racing experience for the average Joe, affording people a chance to show off their extraordinary talents and to hone their skills. The Cup is divided into different classes giving individuals an equal playing ground. They piggyback off public events to help give competitors the maximum affordability possible, and where numbers permit, they host their own events too.
The Michelin Cup Challenge will consist of one event a month for 7 months and each event is scored based on fastest times with a final prize giving at the end of the year – of course the dyno events are based on power and torque and specific classing to make it fair.
