Each nation's own sporting authority - so the MSA here in the UK (or MUK, as it's now called) - will select the drivers. I don't know about the drifting, karting, F4 or TCR, but the GT Cup driver pairings must be FIA-certified bronze/bronze or bronze/silver.At least it is going to be different than the race of champions, and if pro drivers from like F1, FE, WEC, Blacpain, imsa, nascar, Indy car, touring cars etc. are allowed to enter than we will see who is the best racing driver when they are all on an equal playing field.
Each nation's own sporting authority
Yes, that reiterates what I just said (although it's less clear on the driver ratings for GT3 event - a silver/silver pairing isn't permitted). Also, I wrote the article that created this thread.National sporting authorities will be asked to supply teams for the games.
The GT3 event, which is open to silver and bronze-rated drivers only, and the TCR race will be limited to 24 cars, while there will be 20 spaces on the grid for the F4 event.
Drivers representing a country must hold a passport and a race licence issued in their home nation.
The Motorsport Games will also incorporate a slalom event for electric karts in which national teams made up of one male and one female aged between 14 and 16 will compete.

No, it's six different motorsport competitions, of which digital racing is one.A little confused by the article, so is it a digital competition with he winners then taking part in real cars?!
Think of the Olympics. Competitors don't have a pole vault competition to qualify for the equestrian events...Competitors will race in one of six motorsport categories, representing their nations. Each event will award gold, silver, and bronze medals, with an overall medal table to determine the winning country.
For the Motorsport Cup in 2019, the racing expands to cover four more real-world racing categories. Along with GT3, there’ll now also be TCR, Karting, Drifting and Formula 4 events. The latter competition will feature the new hybrid F4 cars, the first open-wheel hybrids outside of F1.
The sixth event takes place in the virtual world. This “Digital Cup” will feature GT Sport, using a live stage with 12 racing rigs, reminiscent of the official GT Sport FIA Online Championship World Tour events.
I was wondering the same thing. Not for myself though, natchIts frustrating to have absolutely no idea how to influence getting "invited" in the UK
No. This isn't connected to the FIA-Certified GT Sport Online Championship in any way.So not only you got to work slave hours to qualify to live events with no prospects of real prizes, but now they want to make people pay ?
I think it's likely that the motorsports organisations for each nation will cover the entry, travel and accommodation fees for its competitors in all six disciplines.Yup, that's not gonna end well, unless the governing bodies take care of the costs.
I'd also imagine that, although I'm not sure quite what the selection criteria would be for the single finalist per nation would be. I am looking forward to Germany and Turkey duking it out for @TRL LIGHTNING thoughI imagine doing well in FIA-Certified GT Sport Live Events gets you the profile and skillset for national motorsport organisations to select you though.
They are not, however, organised by the same people. Your speculation that "now they want to make people pay" is not accurate - "they" are not the same organisers so "they" do not "now" want to do anything of the sort.Well, both things are FIA events and run on GT Sport. It's not part of the series we run right now, but that's enough connection to me.

*innocent whistle*I'm eagerly awaiting YouTubers making "VALLELUNGA CONFIRMED IN GT SPORT" content
There are entry fees for other disciplines within the Games as well - the karting event, for example, has a €500 per nation fee.I'm not speculating, they're introducing an entry fee for a live simracing event in which drivers won't get to represent their sponsors, again.
So why link the two like this:I have not said I'm expecting the FIAGTC series to introduce such a fee, and I am not expecting it
They are unconnected events. One is a Gran Turismo event with FIA certification, the other is an FIA event that uses Gran Turismo. Nobody now wants to make people pay for FIAGTC, and posting things like this which directly suggest otherwise is exactly how misinformation gets started and runs round the web with "according to GTPlanet".So not only you got to work slave hours to qualify to live events with no prospects of real prizes, but now they want to make people pay ?
Firstly, ahahahahaha, no.My local body wants our candidate to fund the entire trip - so flights accommodation and transfers from NZ to Europe, and the entry fee. Yeah righto
