Distros typically require a FOSS license. The license status of vdrift data is unfortunately not very clear.

One idea I had was to modify the car/track updates downloader code to be able to download all data, so that we only have to ship the executable which is GPL.

Alternatively one could ship a really minimal data set known to be GPL compatible. One just would have to identify the cars and tracks that are safe and document it.

If there are problems with the licenses you can always use Snaps or flatpaks for the distribution.... or just a compressed file with the binaries . But the first options are more visible to everyone.
