Avec la Coupe Nissan Micra, la jeune vedette ontarienne du karting passe à la vitesse supérieure, offrant un message d'espoir exaltant à chaque virage MISSISSAUGA, ON et MIRABEL, QC--(Marketwired - 9 mai 2017) - Nissan et JD Promotion & Compétition sont fières de présenter le portrait d'un nouveau participant à la Coupe Micra 2017 : Austin Riley, un prodige du karting âgé de 18 ans. Originaire d'Uxbridge, en Ontario, Austin a commencé la course lorsqu'il avait 8 ans et s'est illustré à tous les échelons de la compétition, montrant à ses supporters qu'ils peuvent croire en leurs rêves. À 12 ans, Austin a reçu un diagnostic d'autisme de haut niveau. Sa carrière de pilote n'était alors qu'à ses débuts, mais ses parents, Jason et Jennifer Riley, au lieu de mettre fin à ses rêves, l'ont plutôt encouragé à les poursuivre. Famille, amis, communauté du karting… tous ont soutenu les Riley pour qu'ils puissent développer le talent naissant de leur fils, qui a commencé à se sentir sur la piste comme un poisson dans l'eau. Voyant leur fils Austin collectionner les distinctions et gagner en aisance sur la piste, les Riley ont compris que son parcours unique méritait d'être raconté. Ils ont donc créé, en 2013, Racing with Autism, une plateforme pour sensibiliser la population au phénomène de l'autisme, de même que l'équipe de course officielle d'Austin. " Les sports motorisés ont enseigné à mon fils d'innombrables leçons qu'il n'aurait pas pu apprendre ailleurs, notamment l'acceptation, explique Jason Riley, président de Racing With Autism et père d'Austin. La course lui a aussi permis de développer des mécanismes d'adaptation uniques, mais transférables au quotidien, dans toutes sortes de situations. " Au sein de la communauté du karting, Austin a largement prouvé sa valeur, lui qui a remporté trois titres et qui s'est fait un nom dans des compétitions des plus prestigieuses. Il compte ainsi à son palmarès la deuxième place au Championship Ron Fellows Karting Challenge 2016 dans la division Rotax DD2 Shifter et la deuxième place au ECKC Goodwood Kartways la même année. C'est un vétéran de la Coupe Nissan Micra, le pilote Metod Topolnik d'Azure Racing, et son épouse, Marie-Christine Bédard, qui ont fait d2couvrir la série aux Riley, après avoir entendu parler d'Austin et de Racing with Autism. Eux-mêmes défenseurs de la cause de l'autisme, M. Topolnik et Mme Bédard ont été inspirés et encouragés par les prouesses d'Austin, et ils ont communiqué avec sa famille. " On a diagnostiqué une forme d'autisme chez notre fils Thomas quand il avait 2 ans. À ce moment, notre monde s'est écroulé. Nous n'aurions jamais pu imaginer que cela arriverait à notre magnifique petit garçon, si curieux et si affectueux, raconte Mme Bédard. Metod et moi avons fait tout en notre pouvoir pour offrir à Thomas les meilleures chances de réussir sa vie, et nous nous sommes engagés dans la sensibilisation à l'autisme. Quand nous avons entendu parler des réalisations d'Austin, cela nous a donné énormément d'espoir. Nous avons voulu nous aussi l'aider à poursuivre ses rêves et diffuser ce message d'espoir auprès des personnes qui, comme nous, en ont le plus besoin. " M. Topolnik a offert à Austin d'essayer sa voiture de la Coupe Nissan Micra l'an dernier. À la suite de cette expérience, les Riley ont vu que le passage à la compétition automobile - ce qu'ils croyaient auparavant impossible - pouvait bel et bien se concrétiser. M. Topolnik, de l'équipe Azure Racing, a obtenu le soutien du Groupe Touchette Pirelli, de la Fondation Els for Autism et de la Fondation Miriam pour commanditer la participation d'Austin à la saison 2017 de la Coupe Nissan Micra, qui marquera du coup ses débuts en course automobile. Ce passage est non sans rappeler celui d'autres coureurs, comme Valérie Limoges, Samuel Crowe, Nicolas Barrette, Kevin King et Stefan Rzadzinski, de même que celui des champions de la Coupe Nissan Micra des saisons 2015 et 2016 - respectivement Olivier Bédard et Xavier Coupal -, qui avaient tous fait d'abord leurs classes en karting. " Le cœur et l'âme de la marque Nissan, c'est d'offrir à tous l'innovation et l'exaltation, et cela imprègne intégralement nos activités de sports motorisés, commente Joni Paiva, président, Nissan Canada Inc. La Coupe Nissan Micra rassemble des pilotes de tous les horizons, des femmes et des hommes immensément talentueux et passionnés. Austin y apporte une riche diversité. J'ai bien hâte de voir comment la Coupe Nissan Micra et son format monotype lui permettront de faire avancer sa carrière déjà impressionnante. " Le 7 mai dernier, les pilotes de la Coupe Nissan Micra, dont Austin, se sont retrouvés à Mirabel pour la journée annuelle d'essais présaison. L'enthousiasme d'Austin à propulser sa carrière vers de nouveaux sommets était palpable, à mesure que la vitesse et la confiance du jeune prodige augmentaient avec les tours. " J'étais vraiment enthousiaste à l'idée de participer à la Coupe Nissan Micra. M'asseoir au volant d'une Micra un jour avant mes 18 ans est le meilleur cadeau d'anniversaire dont j'aurais pu rêver, se réjouit Austin. La course, c'est ma vie. J'encourage vivement tous mes partisans à ne jamais cesser de croire en leurs rêves. Rien n'est impossible. " " C'est un moment exaltant pour notre famille, notre équipe et toute la communauté de l'autisme. La Coupe Nissan Micra représente pour Austin un défi réjouissant, qui plus est essentiel pour cultiver son talent, que nous croyons, franchement, sans limites, commente M. Riley. Un grand merci à Metod et Marie d'Azure Racing, au Groupe Touchette Pirelli et à tous nos commanditaires, ainsi qu'à l'équipe de la Coupe Nissan Micra, qui ont rendu tout cela possible. Ce sera une saison formidable.

Young karting star from Ontario advances career with Nissan Micra Cup, drives message of hope and inspiration at every turn MISSISSAUGA, ON and MIRABEL, QC--(Marketwired - May 09, 2017) - Nissan and JD Promotion & Compétition are proud to announce 18-year-old karting champion, Austin Riley, as a new driver for the 2017 Micra Cup season. The teenager from Uxbridge, Ontario, has been racing since he was eight-years-old, competed and succeeded at every level of karting, and inspires crowds of people to follow their dreams with every race. At the age of 12, Austin was diagnosed on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum. Although his racing career was in its infancy, Austin's parents, Jason and Jennifer Riley, did not stop his racing dreams, instead, they did the opposite. With the support of family, friends and the karting community, the Rileys nurtured Austin's burgeoning talent and he found his element on the race track. As the racing accolades poured in, and Austin's racing abilities developed, the Rileys realized they had a unique story to share. In 2013 they established Racing with Autism, a platform to raise awareness about autism and Austin's official racing team. "Motorsport has given my son countless things he hasn't been able to find anywhere else in life, and one of them is acceptance," says Jason Riley, president of Racing with Autism and Austin's father. "It also teaches coping mechanisms you can't learn anywhere else, but ones that you can apply every day, no matter what the situation." Austin has proven his mettle in the karting community being a three-time karting champion and with numerous career highlights including second place in the 2016 Championship Ron Fellows Karting Challenge in the Rotax DD2 Shifter division, and second place at ECKC Goodwood Kartways in 2016. It was Micra Cup veteran driver Metod Topolnik of Azure Racing, and wife Marie Christine Bédard, who introduced the Rileys to the Nissan Micra Cup, after learning about Austin and Racing with Autism. Autism awareness advocates themselves, Topolnik and Bédard were inspired and encouraged by Austin's achievements, and reached out to his family. "Our son Thomas was diagnosed with autism at two-years-old and at that moment, our world stopped. We never could have expected this for our beautiful, curious and affectionate little boy," said Bédard. "Metod and I began doing everything we could to give Thomas the best chance for a better life, and became advocates for autism awareness. When we learned about Austin's achievements, it gave us immense hope, and we wanted to help support and encourage Austin in the pursuit of his dreams and share this message of hope with people like us who need it most." After Topolnik offered his Micra Cup race car for Austin to try on the track last year, the Rileys realized something they once considered out of reach -- advancing to car racing -- was a real possibility. Topolnik of Azure Racing rallied support from Groupe Touchette Pirelli, The Els for Autism Foundation and The Miriam Foundation, to sponsor Austin to participate in the 2017 Nissan Micra Cup season, marking the first time Austin will compete in car racing. Austin's debut continues a pattern already seen in the Micra Cup family. Valérie Limoges; Samuel Crowe; Nicolas Barrette; Kevin King; Stefan Rzadzinski and the Micra Cup champions from the 2015 and 2016 seasons respectively -- Olivier Bédard and Xavier Coupal -- all earned their racing stripes in karting. "Offering innovation and excitement for everyone is the heart and soul of the Nissan brand and absolutely carries over into the motorsport side of the business," says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada Inc. "The Micra Cup grid is an assembly of highly-skilled, passionate men and women with a mixture of driving backgrounds. Austin diversifies the Micra Cup series in a wonderful way. I look forward to seeing how Micra Cup and spec series racing will further advance Austin's already-impressive career." On May 7th, the Nissan Micra Cup drivers, including Austin, gathered in Mirabel for the annual test day ahead of the season start. Austin's passion for advancing his career was apparent, as the young karting star gained speed and confidence with every lap. "I've been really excited to drive on the track as a Nissan Micra Cup driver. Getting behind the wheel of the Micra one day before I turn 18 is the best birthday gift I could ask for," says Austin Riley. "Racing is where I belong. I strongly tell everyone to keep following their dreams, nothing is impossible." "This is a very exciting time for us as a family, as a team, and for the autism community. Austin is about to embark on a fun challenge with the Nissan Micra Cup, but one that is necessary to further cultivate his talent, which we staunchly believe, has no bounds," Jason Riley added. "I'd like to sincerely thank Metod and Marie of Azure Racing, Groupe Touchette Pirelli and all our sponsors, as well as the Micra Cup team, for helping make this happen. It's going to be an incredible season." More information and the complete list of drivers who will participate in what will be an exceptional season of the Nissan Micra Cup will be provided soon.

The Nissan Leaf has been a fading light in the electric car market, but after a few years in the dark, it will soon get a chance to shine once more. Despite a battery capacity increase in 2016 and a quarter of a million in sales since its 2010 launch, the Leaf has been in dire need of a proper trip back to the drawing board. Especially in recent years, with the increasing number of competitors on the market, the Leaf has somewhat fallen out of the public eye. DON’T MISS: 2018 Nissan Leaf: what we know so far about next electric car This September, that will change when the Renault Nissan Alliance unveils the long-awaited second-generation Leaf. A recent article in industry trade journal Automotive News included some details about the alliance's ambitious longer-term plans for plug-in electric vehicles. For 2018, the Renault-Nissan group plans on increasing the Leaf's electric range to keep up with its competitors. Considering models such as the 238-mile Chevrolet Bolt EV and even the new 124-mile Hyundai Ioniq Electric have more range than the world's best-selling electric car, the expectations are high. It has been hinted that an electric range between 200 and 250 miles could be expected from the new Leaf. Nissan Motor CEO Hiroto Saikawa said that by 2020, the company would even be able to reach the 300 mile-range. READ THIS: Six new electric cars coming for 2018 and 2019 He, however, did not specify whether such an upgrade would be applied to the mass-market Leaf. But that is only one of the two issues Saikawa plans on tackling. Mitsubishi is the second one. The struggling brand had an aging lineup and declining sales even before it was slammed with a highly public scandal over cheating on Japanese emission and fuel-economy tests for many years. That scandal led directly to the purchase of a 34-percent stake in Mitsubishi Motors by the Renault Nissan Alliance. In return, Nissan will benefit from Mitsubishi's expertise in plug-in hybrid technology. The Outlander plug-in hybrid has been a big success, having sold over 100,000 units in Europe and Asia. CHECK OUT: Honda to launch electric car in China next year too, joining Toyota, reluctantly The resulting three-way alliance will also let Mitsubishi benefit from the group’s technology and a shared compact electric car platform that could eventually underlie both the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Zoe. Executives said that mentoring and the exchange of technologies will, for now, be the extent of the companies’ collaboration. Indeed, that's the way Renault and Nissan started out, taking several years to begin sharing engines, vehicle platforms, and combined purchasing. As for electric cars, could the tiny, aged, and mediocre Mitsubishi i-MiEV get a second wind thanks to Nissan’s input? Time will tell, but for now, Renault-Nissan and Mitsubishi are moving forward and looking toward a combined future in which, collectively, they make up one of the world's four largest car companies.
