     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.
