The second Moto Mech show is gathering traction as organisers prepare for the event, taking place on 22 February at Port Elizabeth’s Newton Technical High School.
Peter van Mosseveld, MIWA’s representative in the Eastern Cape has joined forces with Bridget Finn of Finn Auto Repairs to conceptualise the event, which will include a classic car display and a showdown between top mechanics in the area, along with car and motor bike displays, kids’ activities and food and drink stalls.
Van Mosseveld says that the event will be even larger than last year’s highly successful inaugural show, and will be a useful tool for introducing both primary and high school learners to the motor industry. “We want junior school children to know there is a career in Motor Mechanics, and to know which schools are available for this career. For those in high school, we would like to educate them about what the industry is all about and the options in terms of available colleges and workshops.”
Moto Mech takes place from 9am to 3pm. All proceeds go to the Newton Technical High School.
