First mitchelin Cup event is a dyno day. It falls on the same day as vwcsa 28th January but I'm going till 16:00 to the Michelin cup one so I can get classified for a class for the rest of the season. Then of to vwcsa dyno day. So if you plan to enter Michelin cup this year, please remember to enter the dyno day or you won't be classified.
