The World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) is the most powerful body of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). It decides on rules and regulations for the FIA's various racing series, from karting to Formula One.[1] Its membership is chosen by the FIA General Assembly, which contains representatives from national automobile clubs (ASNs) throughout the world. It is one of two FIA World Councils; the other deals with matters such as tourism.

The World Motor Sport Council meets three or four times a year to consider proposals from specialist FIA Commissions. It has a current membership of 27, including FIA President Jean Todt and Formula One commercial rights owner Bernie Ecclestone.
