Watch the 2019 FIA Motorsport Games Opening Ceremony live
After last year's World GT Finals in Bahrain were such a success, the FIA has regrouped with Stephan Ratel and SRO Motorsport to organise an international coming together.
This year, teams from around the world will compete against the best in each country in a variety of forms of motorsport. Just like the traditional Olympic Games, the Motorsport version is being kicked off by an immense ceremony and parade taking place in the centre of Rome, not far from the Vallelunga racetrack where all the action will take place.
On the roster for this year's event is a selection of the most popular racing categories around. From the grass roots of karting to the illustrious world of GT3 racing and everything in between.
Luckily for those of us that can't quite drop everything and fly to Italy, every event of the coming weekend will be broadcast on the GT World YouTube channel and the FIA Motorsport Games website.
