June is Youth Month in South Africa, the perfect time for us to host Moto Mech, the annual showcase of our industry for upcoming mechanics.
Attendees can look forward to a range of exhibits from equipment suppliers to parts suppliers, bargaining councils, healthcare providers, tool suppliers, fire and health safety suppliers, and everything else industry related.
The highlight of the event is, of course, the Junior Motor Mech Show, and we’re thrilled to have teams from technical schools as far as PE attending. This year’s contest will be more streamlined; plus, we’ve crafted a nail-bitingly exciting final to really test participants’ skills.
There will be plenty to keep kids entertained, too. Little ones will love the old-fashioned carnival vibe and our Songololo train, while older kids will clamour to take part in the virtual simulator race-off, especially since there are prizes for the top three contestants. Look out, too, for displays featuring wheel-inspired Lego and customized scale cars, as well as our virtual truck simulator on loan from the Kempston Driver Academy. The kids’ area is being manned by our local Round Table, and all funds raised will be donated to a charity of their choice.
Moto Mech always provides great opportunities for learning, and this year is no different: HaynesPro is making an appearance at the show for the first time, with two demo slots, while Cliffie Jacobs from Cliffie’s Auto Repairs and David Spenser Higgs from D&T Servicing will host a workshop for women who’d like to upgrade their vehicle know-how. If you are in the area please make an extra effort to pop around and support the show. The visuals shown are from last year’s show to give you a taste of what you can expect!!!
