Will it count them as if you raced the tracks yourself?

Yes, hired drivers count as if you drove it yourself for all achievements.

So, will completing the Event List mainly using hired drivers will get me the World Tourer achievement?

Still no World Tourer achievement. Fingers crossed.

You aren't going to get it just by doing Event List. We said hiring drivers will get you the achievement, not doing the Event List will get you the achievement. There are several tracks not on Event List.

I haven't finished Bucket List yet, so I don't know for sure, but no Drag Racing tracks show up in Event list and I don't think Old Mulsanne at Le Mans or Full Circuits of Nordschleife or Fujimi Kaido show up. There may be others. You could always just look and see what tracks you haven't done.

Kaido Full circuit in reverse shows up in the 8th season, I believe (Did for me anyways). Not sure on the others.

I don't think WT gives different tracks to different people (I could be wrong). The locations are fixed, it's just the races that differ. I haven't driven FK full in either direction, yet and I'm finished with Season 10. I've raced segments of it, but never the full thing. I hate that track and I would remember doing it if I had to do the whole thing.

I know for a fact I raced it in the last season I completed last night (8)... It was one lap around the whole thing, and I used my RX-7 (I chose the Club RX-7 race). It was the 10th or 11th track in the season, and I remember comparing it to Kaido full in FM3, as the Drift Achieve was the last one I got in FM3 before FM4 came out and I raced that track a ton trying to get that stupid achiev. lol

Yeah, like I said I could be wrong. I'm just pretty sure I haven't driven the full thing yet. That stupid drift achievement is the only one I don't have from FM3. I'm one of a very few people that know you CAN run out of Rewinds because of it.

I went through the full 10 seasons of World Tour two and a half times and it does have you run on the full Nurburgring Nordschliefe. The Event List, however, does not. I did not run on Fujimi Kaido full in World Tour ever.

The tracks I still needed after completing ~75% of the Event List and the 10 seasons of World Tour were:

Fujimi Kaido Full Forward and Reverse
Fujimi Kaido New and Old Downhill
Fujimi Kaido New and Old Hillclimb
Top Gear Test Track Full Circuit
All 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1 mile dragstrips. Just scroll through each track and you'll see which tracks have drag strips.

Make sure you're doing a Quick Race or online race or some other form of race, but it has to be a race and not a hot lap.

The Benchmark Test Tracks are not necessary. All other tracks not listed here should be covered by the Event List. You can see my full list of Events sorted by Track here:

Hired drivers are just slightly better than Hard AI. Given the right car they will win a vast majority of the time with the AI on Hard. Almost never on Professional.
