    Motorsport South Africa (MSA) is recognised by both the Federation

Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Federation Internationale de

Motocyclism (FIM), as the sole national motorsport federation in South

Africa. The FIM and FIA recognise only one "National" federation in each

country, with such federation in turn being responsible for the control and

administration of motorsport in its own country. In South Africa, the FIA

and FIM have transferred their sporting powers to MSA and all motorsport

events in the country are held in accordance with FIA and FIM Sporting

Codes. MSA is one of only a few federations responsible for the control of

both car and motorcycle sporting events, with most other countries having

separate governing bodies for the two disciplines.
