  • We now have the FIA motorsport games. Good start to Olympic-ize motorsports. I expect rallying and virtual racing to be part of that instead of the actual sporting Olympics.

  • i think an F3 car is very suitable for motor racing at the Olympics. Countries should recieve one or two cars a few months before the games and mechanics that work on the car and the pilots should all be the same nationality. everyone tests and sets-up the car within regulations. it's not a hugely expensive idea.

    • They should also do a Paralympics version of their motorsport games, but with the 1st placing driver in that gets to race in main event

  • I think they should consider something like karting or some stock car racing for the olympics, so that the drivers are the ones competing and not manufacturers or countries with huge car manufacturing capabilities.

    • @Dimon Well last year they had kart events at the FIA Motorsport games, I don't know if they still want it to be an Olympic sport.

    • Well, the Youth Olympics had it as a demonstration sport in Buenos Aires in 2018... so there's hope.

    • Some time ago i've read that FIA(Or someone else? Not sure) was trying to push karting into the olympics, i guess nothing came out of it.

    • They can simply use Junior driver for that. So no driver will fear reputation shredded because they haven't have any in the first place

  • Not only are they considering esports, but there are groups lobbying to get _pole dancing_ to be an Olympic sport. No, I’m not kidding.
