FIA Motorsport Games To Feature 12 Out Of 17 Disciplines at Circuit Paul Ricard in October

The 2022 FIA Motorsport Games, presented and organised jointly by the FIA and SRO Motorsports Group and to be staged at Circuit Paul Ricard and the surrounding area, will feature a total of 17 different disciplines when the event takes place between October 26 – 30.

Circuit Paul Ricard, the venue for the French Grand Prix and for many top-level sportscar events, will features events for Endurance, GT, GT Sprint, Touring Car and Formula 4 on its slalom course, Auto Slalom and Karting Slalom on the slalom course, drifting at the driving centre and karting events for endurance, senior and junior at the karting venue.

The opening ceremony will be hosted by the city of Marseille with a display from every National Sporting Authority and its team of drivers near Vieux-Port at the Mucem in Marseilles.

First held in 2019, the debut event attracted participation from 49 nations and 192 drivers. For 2022, the event has tripled in size to cover ‘an array of disciplines from the grassroots to the highest echelons of the sport with the aim of increasing understanding and accessibility to the sport.’.

SRO Motorsports Group founder and CEO Stéphane Ratel is excited to see how the event has developed.

“Circuit Paul Ricard is an incredible circuit and venue,” he said. “We hosted the first ever BPR Endurance Series there in 1994, marking the revival of GT racing in Europe and the 1000km race has been part of our series, most recently the Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, for more than 10 years. It will be fantastic to see everything from karting to GT Sprint and Endurance action all at the same place. It’s the ideal venue to host 12 of the 17 disciplines at this year’s FIA Motorsport Games.”

“We are thrilled to host the FIA Motorsport Games,” said Circuit Paul Ricard CEO Stéphane Clair. “It will be interesting to watch all these competitions between worldwide countries and various motorsport categories in the same place. We look forward to working with Stéphane Ratel, his team and the FIA to organise an incredible event in the South of France.”
