The Dacia Logan Cup has been held in Romania as Cupa Dacia Logan JOE[4] in 2007. In 2008, the name was changed to Cupa Dacia Ursus and since 2009 it was known as Cupa Dacia.[5] It was managed from the beginning by Mach1sport-management and since 2010 the competition was sponsorised by Policolor's "Klar Professional". Cupa Dacia is very popular, with fierce competition, as it is part of the Romanian National Rally Championship (CNR) and is affiliated to FRAS (Romanian Federation of Sport Automotive).

ADAC has been organizing the Cup in Germany since 2006 as the ADAC Dacia Logan Clubsport.[6] This championship rewards not the best driver but the best amateur team.

In France, the Coupe Logan Rallycross was organised by FFSA in 2008[7] as a rallycross series.

In Russia, the Renault Logan Cup[8] rally series is supported by local Renault representatives - OAO Avtoframos, which manufacture Logans at a plant in Moscow. Held since 2008, Renault Logan Cup was private at first, sponsored by AGA autocosmetics. The race calendar consists of 9 races: 4 are part of the Russian Rally Championship, 4 in budget-minded Club Rally Cup, and one final race. Championship events usually attract no more than 5 Logans, as they are expensive. Club Rally evens are twice as popular, and there have been approximately 25 cars built (total) by the end of 2009.

The grand prize of the Russian Renault Logan Cup is free participation in the top winter oval racing (named trek) - Star Race by Za Rylem magazine, which is held each February.
