Your chance to represent Team UK at the 2024 FIA Motorsport Games

Monday 18 December 2023

The countdown is on to the third FIA Motorsport Games to be held in Valencia, Spain next October and Motorsport UK is now welcoming prospective Team UK drivers to register their interest. 

The Spanish city will welcome international competitors across 26 different categories over four venues – Circuito Ricardo Tormo (incl. Drift), Lucas Guerreo (Karting), Circuito de la Ribeira (Cross Car) and Valencia city centre from 23-27 October 2024.  

The Games brings together global competitors and at the 2022 edition in France, 463 athletes representing 72 ASNs raced for glory across 16 categories, in front of 45,000 spectators. With an additional ten competition categories already confirmed for 2024, the number of event participants and attendees is only set to grow.  

James Baldwin claimed Team UK’s first ever gold medal in 2022, winning the Esports category whilst Ian Loggie and Sam Neary secured bronze in the GT. British drivers put in stellar performances across all competing categories and were unlucky to miss out on further medals. 

Motorsport UK is anticipating a strong team of competitors to represent the nation in Valencia and is welcoming drivers to apply HERE for consideration of becoming a member of Team UK.  

The original founding categories of the FIA Motorsport Games – GT, GT Sprint, Touring Car, Formula 4, Drift, and Esports – continue to feature prominently, alongside a new medal opportunity in Esports Rally.  

In Karting, the Junior and Senior Sprint categories will return, while Karting Endurance will welcome female/male pairings aged 14 and over. The new addition in this discipline is Karting Mini, which will be introduced for drivers aged between eight and 11. 

The Rally disciplines account for the greatest number of new categories. Rally2, Rally4, and Historic Rally have each been separated into three contests – one for Gravel specialists, one for Tarmac specialists, and one comprising both surfaces for all-rounders, offering no fewer than nine possibilities to win medals. The new Rally All-Stars category, meanwhile, is open to drivers listed on the FIA priority list who are not currently eligible to enter Rally2 or Rally4. 

Cross Car Junior and Senior return alongside the new Cross Car Eco category, which complements the existing electric competitions in Auto Slalom and Karting Slalom. Further new categories remain under consideration. 

In addition to the coveted trophy for the winning nation outright, there will be regional trophies for Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Middle East/North Africa (MENA). There will also be a NewStar trophy for the nation whose upcoming talents shine brightest in the grassroots categories and an AllStar trophy for the top-performing nation in categories reserved for more established drivers. 

Please note, by submitting an application, you are accepting the Motorsport UK Terms and Conditions which will apply should you be selected.  Your application will be reviewed by a selection panel after the closing date (31st January) and the outcome of your application will be communicated.  For some disciplines, there may be further assessment events to determine final selections – this will be communicated as part of the selection outcome.
