Kyalami G P Circuit, South Africa. When first the Kyalami G P Circuit was completed (1961) marshalling was provided by two separate organizations, namely TMA (Transvaal Marshals Association) and TMCC (Transvaal Motorcycle and Car Club). Each managed a portion of the circuit and the disputes over whether an incident had occurred in the one or the others sector were apparently quite spectacular. During 1971 the circuit owners stepped in and insisted that there be only one body and that that body should reside under the authority of the Circuit Owner giving rise to the birth of the Kyalami Marshals Association.

The British Motorsport Marshals Club – formerly known as the British Motor Racing Marshals Club – is the main organisation for marshals in the UK.

All the members of the BMMC and the related British Rally Marshals Club are unpaid volunteers who, nevertheless, pride themselves on their professionalism.

The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in Paris, France, is the governing body for world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organisations. The FIA, which roughly translates as The Internation Federtion of the Automobile, separates motoring into Touring and Sporting activities. Most countries have a national sanctioning/governing body that is a member of the FIA, in Canada it is the Sports Development Group (SDG). In the United States the national body is The Automobile Competition Committee of the United States (ACCUS)

The FIA has delegated the Touring authority in Canada to our fellow FIA member, the Canadian Automobile Association. The FIA has delegated the Sporting authority to the Groupe de developpment sportif (Sports Development Group) which governs amateur and professional motorsport in Canada. A complete list of affiliats is not available at this time as they are still in transition from the old ASN Canada FIA that is now defunct.
