The FIA Motorsport Games were born out of the successful FIA GT Nations Cup held in 2018 at the Bahrain International Circuit, and the concept was announced by the FIA last month.
The inaugural event, organised by the FIA in conjunction with promoter SRO Motorsports Group, is scheduled to take place in Rome and at the nearby Vallelunga Circuit from 31 October to 3 November 2019.
The FIA Motorsport Games will be held across six different motor sport disciplines, with established categories such as GT, Touring Cars and Formula 4 featuring alongside the emerging competitions of drifting, digital motorsport and karting slalom, which are rapidly gaining in prominence.
Continuing the national focus of the GT Nations Cup, each competition invites one entry per country, to be selected by the respective National Sporting Authorities (ASNs) worldwide. Liveries in each discipline will feature the national flag of the respective country.
Each competition will award gold, silver and bronze medals to its top three, all of which will contribute to an overall medal table to determine the winning nation at the end of the event.
