Truck Racing to join 2024 FIA Motorsport Games

Truck Racing to join 2024 FIA Motorsport Games

The FIA Motorsport Games today revealed a huge addition to the line-up of racing categories for this year’s event – when we say huge, we’re not only talking about the importance of the announcement but also the actual size of the vehicles – Truck Racing is coming to the 2024 event in Valencia, Spain.

The 2024 edition of FIA Motorsport Games will feature 26 different motorsport categories from October 23-27 this year.

SRO Motorsports Group and the FIA will rely on the support of the European Truck Racing Association, the promoter of Goodyear FIA European Truck Racing Championship, as well as the promoters of different national truck racing series, to build the competition’s entry list.

Teams from the Goodyear FIA European Truck Racing Championship will compete at Circuit Ricardo Tormo, with series regulars expected to be joined by a host of international racers who compete in truck racing championships from around the world.

​​The format will feature two 30-minute practice sessions, followed by qualifying. A qualifying race will set the grid order for the 35-minute main race to determine the medal winners.

The trucks set to race in Valencia will not only be the biggest machines to compete at this year’s FIA Motorsport Games, they also will be some of the most environmentally sustainable.

The Goodyear FIA ETRC was the first-ever motorsport series to successfully switch to a 100% sustainable fuel in 2021, and with the bio-LNG-powered IVECO S-WAY NP pace truck, the championship has reduced its carbon emissions on the race track by up to 92% over the past three years.

Officially launched in 1984, the FIA European Truck Racing Championship features vehicles from leading manufacturers, including IVECO, Freightliner, MAN, Scania and Ford. 


In 2024, the championship will compete at major venues throughout Europe, including Misano (Italy), Nürburgring (Germany), and Le Mans (France). It will finish its championship season in Jarama (Spain) in early October before heading to Valencia at the end of that same month for the FIA Motorsport Games’ Truck Racing competition.

"It's truly thrilling for truck racing to be included in the FIA Motorsport Games for the first time ever this year in Valencia,” said ETRA Managing Director Georg Fuchs.

“We have a stellar roster of drivers who are not only passionate about representing their nations but also dedicated to showcasing the thrill and excitement of truck racing to a global audience.”

Hungarian racer Norbert Kiss has been the man to catch in recent years, winning the championship in 2021, 22 and 23 (in addition to his 2014 and 15 wins). His rivals include six-time champion Jochen Hahn (Germany), who finished second in the championship last year as well as popular female racer Stephanie Halm, who scored six podiums last season en route to a fifth-place finish in the points.

“We're thrilled to not only bring the excitement of truck racing to the FIA Motorsport Games but also offer enthusiasts the opportunity to experience it firsthand,” said Janine Meyer, Director of Operations at ETRA. 

“We also have a few trucks available from some teams. If anyone likes to try their hands at a new discipline, get in contact.’

“Diversity and inclusivity is at the very heart of the FIA Motorsport Games and with the addition of Truck Racing to the programme, we’re going to have a line-up of disciplines as diverse as it can possibly be,” said Marek Nawarecki, FIA Senior Circuit Sport Director.

“Truck racing is a popular form of motorsport in some countries in Asia or South America, so the FIA Motorsport Games represent a unique opportunity for the competitors from these series to face each other on track, and for truck racing itself to have an event on a scale unseen to date. It should also be a very special show for the fans gathered trackside in Valencia this October.”

Entries for the 2024 FIA Motorsport Games are currently being accepted via the dedicated FIA registration platform, with the deadline being 23 September. 

Competitors wishing to represent their countries at the 2024 FIA Motorsport Games are required to contact their respective National Sporting Authorities

“Our dream for the FIA Motorsport Games is to have a range of motorsport categories that are as broad and diverse as possible. Having Truck Racing now part of the Games for 2024 certainly fits that ambition,” said Stéphane Ratel, who co-founded the FIA Motorsport Games with the FIA.

“We have no doubt that the Truck Racing battle for the gold medal is going to be an incredible fan favourite in Valencia, and I can’t wait to see them in action – drivers flying the flag for their home nation.

“This brings the number of confirmed categories to 26, which represents massive growth from 16 in Marseille in 2022 and our original six from Rome in 2019. We are incredibly proud to see the Games continue to grow and thrive.”
