Isn't there some sort of FIA tie in with the Manufacturers Cup and Nations Cup. I found this: A product of three years of work with the FIA, the game will harness two separate officially endorsed world championships, which will feature both online qualifying rounds and live streamed regional and world finals. It's remains unclear whether these finals will be live events, but FIA chief technical officer Charlie Whiting will be a judge in the FIA World Final, according to the game's creator Kazunori Yamauchi. There are two categories of competition within the game; a Manufacturer Fan Cup and a Nations Cup, with class divisions based on age and region. Winners will progress to regional finals for the top players in each country - who will then move to a World Final. The regions are split into three loose time zones: the Americas; Europe, Africa and the Middle East; Asia and Oceania. https://www.autosport.com/other/news/124365/gran-turismo-sport-and-fia-details-revealed I know this is old and I have no idea how reputable this is, but I would think it's a fairly significant FIA contribution to the game, that's if it actually pans out. I tend to take these things with a bit more than a grain of salt.
