Motorsport is controlled worldwide by two governing bodies: the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) responsible for all forms of automobile sport, and the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), responsible for all categories of motorcycling. The Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK), forms part of the FIA.
Both the FIA and FIM recognise only one National Federation in each country, with such Federation in turn being responsible for the control and administration of the sport in its own country. In South Africa, the FIA and FIM have transferred their sporting powers to Motorsport – South Africa (MSA) and all motorsporting events in the country are held in accordance with FIA and FIM Sporting Codes. South Africa is one of only a few countries responsible for the control of both car and motorcycle sporting events, with most other countries having separate governing bodies for the two disciplines.
There has never been any discrimination in motorsport, and before any club’s application for affiliation to MSA is considered, the club has to provide a copy of its Constitution to MSA, wherein it must be clearly stated that there will be no discrimination between race, colour, creed or religion within the club. The MSA Handbook further specifies this in the Introduction Section.
The control of motorsport in South Africa is divided into six regions, namely Northern Regions; Kwazulu Natal; Western Province; Eastern Province; Border and FS/Northern Cape

Merinos, in great numbers will be found in the drier Northern Cape province, on the fertile lands of the winter rainfall areas of the Western Cape and millions of Merino sheep run on the Karooveld and Grassveld of the Eastern Cape and Free State. Well-known Merino Breeders with large top quality flocks are also found in the East Griqualand of Kwazulu Natal and the most parts of Mpumalanga.
The Meals on Wheels Community Services project was founded in 1964 by Doctor Denis Baird. In light of the serious need amongst the ageing community in East London (South Africa), Dr Baird launched a fund-raising project aimed at financing the first ever Meals on Wheels delivery vehicle. He then gathered a few caring ladies, arranged to use a local church kitchen during weekdays, and the rest is history. At that time, Dr Baird and his original team had no idea that they were giving birth to what would become an enormous miracle of mercy.
