On April 26, 2021, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) announced a collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to host the world's first ever "Olympic Virtual Series Motor Sport Event."
The Olympic Virtual Series is a collaboration between the IOC and five international sports organizations and gaming publishers. The five official sports are baseball, cycling, rowing, sailing, and motor sport, the last of which will be held on "Gran Turismo Sport." Players from all around the world will be able to put their driving skills to the test through this new event.
The Olympic Virtual Series will start on May 13 and continue to June 23. The Global Online Qualification will adopt a time trial format, with the top 16 competitors vying for a spot at the World Final.
The World Final will be broadcast on June 23, which is Olympic Day commemorating the birth of the modern Olympic Games back in 1894. The goal is to promote global participation in sports regardless of age or gender. Be sure to be a part of this historic event!
