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.
