A brand new grandstand opens today on the Billown course in Castletown, ahead of next week's Southern 100 road races.

The 171 seater fixture will be officially named at a ceremony at 1.30pm in the holding area at the end of the by-pass.

A number of dignitaries will attend the event, including financial backers of the grandstand.

This year is the Southern 100's Diamond Jubilee meeting.
