Medal chance for WTCR drivers at FIA Motorsport Games
Medals will be up for grabs in the Touring Car section of the second FIA Motorsport Games at Circuit Paul Ricard from 26-30 October – and WTCR drivers could be in for a share of the glory.
One of six disciplines included in the inaugural FIA Motorsport Games at Vallelunga in 2019, the Touring Car category is one of 17 disciplines scheduled for the FIA Motorsport Games 2022 and will follow the WSC’s TCR regulations, which are also used as standard in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup.
National Sporting Authorities (ASNs) – member clubs of the FIA’s world motorsport governing body – will again be encouraged to enter a driver to compete for a gold, silver or bronze medal under the flag and the colors of their country.

FIA Touring Car Commission Chairman Alan Gow said: “The return of the FIA Motorsport Games, with touring cars on the menu, is great news. Twenty different national sporting authorities were represented at the inaugural Touring Car Cup in 2019, but touring car racing continues to thrive at national and regional levels around the world. This year, with the FIA Motorsport Games now a massive event, entry is expected to be even stronger.
WTCR race winners Tom Coronel, Mato Homola and Gilles Magnus all took part in the inaugural FIA Motorsport Games. Magnus, who drives an Audi RS 3 LMS in WTCR for Comtoyou Team Audi Sport, said: “I have great memories of 2019. We were really competitive and finished second overall. It was also one of the coolest events I’ve ever done.
The FIA Motorsport Games Touring Car competition kicks off on Saturday 29 October with two 30-minute practice sessions. A 30-minute qualifying session and a 25-minute qualifying race plus one lap will be scheduled for the morning of Sunday 30 October, followed by the deciding race in the afternoon, which is scheduled for 30 minutes plus one lap.
