The Sparkle series and GT Lab custom chip sets will only be obtainable from the season pass, and will not be available for purchase otherwise.
Note that the early access available to download version pre-orders, which allows purchasers to play the game on 21 March 2022, does not apply to the season pass: The Sparkles series set and GT Lab custom chip set will be available to early access players on 24 March 2022.
