The unique multi-discipline competition event is said to have attracted more than eighty nations through their National Sporting Authorities (ASNs) with over a thousand drivers competing under their country’s flag and colors.

In accordance with the FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem with the nature of FIA Motorsport Games, it’s structured to create an environment that will see all the participants earn the values of respect, unity, and equal opportunities.

Mohammed Ben Sulayem, FIA President, said: “Participation in the FIA Motorsport Games offers myriad benefits for everybody, from grass-roots competitors to elite athletes. This truly international event unites the global FIA community and allows participants to proudly fly their national flag.

“The Games present a platform for developing new disciplines and sporting frameworks. These are key to encouraging local participation, fostering diversity and making the sport more accessible and affordable. For upcoming talents, in particular, the Games represent a great opportunity to showcase their skills in front of a receptive audience. This creates new role models who will, in turn, go on to inspire future generations.”

The 2022 FIA Motorsport Games will start with a spectacular Opening Ceremony held near the Vieux-Port, at the Mucem in Marseille on Wednesday, 26 October, when each ASN and its team of drivers will embrace the opportunity to parade under the colors of their country’s flag.

It was last hosted in Rome (Italy) and staged at the nearby Vallelunga circuit in 2019, featuring six core disciplines and attracting 49 nations and 192 drivers.

The FIA and SRO Motorsport Group have since built on the success of the inaugural event to vastly expand the 2022 FIA Motorsport Games to feature nearly three times as many disciplines, covering the grassroots to the pinnacles of the sport. The entire spectrum will be represented from Karting Slalom to Rallying, Drifting to Formula 4, Endurance, and GT racing.

Rallying will also become a major part of the proceedings this year. Staged on the tarmac roads of Sainte-Baume, three separate disciplines will be included in the 2022 program, with exciting new additions for high-performance Rally2 machinery and two-wheel-drive Rally4 cars. The popular historic scene will be on show too, with Historic Rally joining the bill.

Esports action also returns, giving the opportunity for motorsport gamers aged over 16 years to compete on the global stage without a racing license.

The Games will continue its future-forward approach and the 2022 edition will be organized as an environmentally responsible event, aspiring to fulfil the highest three-star FIA environmental accreditation standard.
