“We are delighted to welcome a second Esports discipline to the 2024 FIA Motorsport Games,” said FIA Esports Commission President Niroshan Pereira.

“The Esports GT Category with Assetto Corsa Competizione proved to be hugely popular in Marseille, and we have no doubt that the Esports F4 Category with iRacing will be a similar success. 

“This addition to the programme will offer ASNs and their selected Esports representatives even more opportunities to shine and compete for medals. 

“With the reduced entry fee lowering the barrier to competition, we are hopeful of attracting more than 100 entries across the two Esports categories as the FIA Motorsport Games continues to showcase the skills of the stars of both the present and the future.”
