Motorsport Ireland is the National Governing Body for four-wheeled motorsport in Ireland. We are affiliated to the supreme authority for world motorsport, which is the "Federation Internationale de l'Automobile" (FIA) based in Geneva and Paris. The FIA recognises in each of its affiliated countries, one sole authority that holds the sporting power, and in Ireland, it recognises Motorsport Ireland as that authority.
Motorsport Ireland's jurisdiction covers the 26 counties and has currently has 32 affiliated motor clubs under its umbrella. In each year, these clubs organise approximately 160 sporting events in total, which are listed in the official Motorsport Ireland calendar and cover 12 different branches of the sport. Every person wishing to compete in one of these motorsport events must be the holder of a Competition Licence issued by Motorsport Ireland or by another national governing body affiliated to the FIA.
On average, each year Motorsport Ireland issues approximately 3,000 Competition Licences.
Motorsport Ireland depends on the support of a diverse community of dedicated volunteers. Our staff members are dedicated to supporting our competitors, clubs, officials, and volunteers.
