    The FIA is an association established to represent the interests of motoring organisations and motor car users.

    The organisation is mostly known as the governing body for many auto racing events, such as the well known Formula One. 

    The World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) has responsibility for all aspects of international motor sports.

    Its primary role is amending current regulations and drafting new regulations for all of international motor sport.

    Kenya has had interests in the organisation, whereby President Uhuru Kenyatta managed to secure Kenya's inclusion in the world Safari Rally circuit. 

    "Before my administration assumed office in 2013, I made a promise to the people of Kenya, to return the Safari Rally back to the International Automobile Federation World Rally Championship family. This process has taken us seven years.

    "It is my pleasure today to announce to the people of Kenya and Africa that this process has been concluded and the Safari Rally has been included in the International Automobile Federation World Rally Championship, marking the return of the World Rally Championship to Kenya and Africa, after 18 years of waiting," President Kenyatta expressed in 2019.
