New Zealand
6th Feb - Waitangi Day

Otherwise shared with Australia... if not enough NZ'ers to make NZ only cup possible.
25 April - ANZAC Day

NZ and Australia also observe Mother's Day the same date as USA.

Queen's Birthday would apply to all commonwealth countries.

Canada shares many major holidays with the USA, although we rarely get the TLEs even when an appropriate one is already running in the USA.

However, there are a few specific big ones for Canada.

Late May - Victoria Day - the Monday on or just before May 24th.
July 1st - Canada Day - The biggie. You could merely cut-and-paste whatever you do for the USA's July 4th cup.
Mid October - Thanksgiving - 2nd Monday in October. Yes, with turkeys and all that.
December 26 - Boxing Day - It's Canada's original version of Black Friday, with big sales in stores (however we now have Black Friday with the USA too).

Oh surprise surprise.
USA gets yet another regional event.

The rest of us miss out on chance to get Mid tech cards and engines.

So much for Community.

Just wanted to register here my utter disgust with your pathetic attempts to convince players you are actually willing to listen to any suggestions or to implement them. It's already been a month since you've asked players for suggestions for "country specific cups" yet time and time again not only you keep releasing predominantly US-specific cups but also allowing players from ANY country to participate in the European Union specific cups, whilst denying anyone not bearing a US flag to take part in the US-specific cups. Disgusting. Pathetic. Pretty much what I and most other self-respecting players have come to expect from GL by now. It's very clear that this your "invitation for suggestions" is just a ruse to make players believe you care about fairness. No need to reply to this my message as I have learned by now not to believe a single word that comes from the mouths of any GL representatives. Just here to express my disgust as you deserve to hear it.

Today is officially Canada Day. A national holiday. Businesses are closed, and people have some free time to play Asphalt 8. Did Canadians get an exclusive cup? Of course not. Instead, an Independence Day (which falls on July 4th) cup for Americans has started. Will Americans be getting another cup on July 4th as well?

If the rewards these US cups gave out weren't as useful as they are (more tokens than in normal worldwide cups, tons of advanced techs and A/S-class upgrades, expensive token cars like the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS), other players probably wouldn't be as angry as they are.

Can you even begin to understand why players are upset, Gameloft? It certainly seems that you don't. So much for the "level playing field" that your customer service reps like to bring up so much.

Hi, I would suggest Malaysia.

We have Independence Day - Aug 31st and Malaysia Day - Sept 16.

Or, to be fair GL may consider to prmote ASEAN DAY on Aug 8th!

And it will be better if GL can create new track as per our Putrajaya or any Asia country turfs and it will be more interesting!
