The following clubs were elected to the Council for the forthcoming year: MMSC (Madras Motor Sports Club), CASC (Coimbatore Auto Sports Club), KMSC (Karnataka Motor Sports Club), Sportstrek (Pune), MSCC (Motorsports Club of Chikmaglur), HMSA (Himalayan Motor Sports Association), Spitfire Motorsports Pvt Ltd (Coimbatore) and WISA (Western India Sports Association).
