Plans for the next highly successful 2022 Motor Mech show, to be hosted by the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA) at Newton Technical High School in Port Elizabeth, are well on track. MIWA is a proud association of the Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI).
“Motor Mech is always an exciting event on the MIWA calendar, giving us an effective platform for promoting our industry among the country’s youth. Since the Covid pandemic forced us to put the event on hold for the past two years, we are thrilled to announce that the East London Motor Mech Show will take place on Youth Day, June 16 – an appropriate date indeed,” says Teresa Spencer-Higgs, MIWA Eastern Cape vice chairperson.
The show will be hosted at Port Rex High Technical High School, which is once again playing an instrumental role in planning the event. “We are very grateful for the enthusiasm and support shown by this special partner,” she says.
Three years of careful planning have culminated in a show agenda including highlights such as the Junior Motor Mech Competition, where contestants are invited to answer questions and practical tasks based on the Electude system currently used by apprentices in the sector. Students from Port Rex and Alphendale have been invited to take part in this competition, standing the chance to win fantastic prizes from various suppliers.
The day is always jam packed with excitement. This year visitors will be able to enjoy some exciting new car displays as well as vintage car and bike displays from local clubs. Affiliated role players like Motohealth and MerSETA wll be showcasing their brands, and the organisers are also hosting food stalls and a kiddies’ play area, with a local DJ creating a festive atmosphere and lucky draws taking place throughout the day.
“This show has always been such an important part of the Eastern Cape calendar and we are delighted we are able to finally host it again as a much-awaited annual event,” concludes Spenser-Higgs
