Would-be mechanics invited to open evening

The Isle of Man Youth Motor Project is holding an open evening today (Thursday), for anybody with a budding interest in cars and motorcycles.

It's aimed at young people from school year seven upwards, particularly those in years seven to nine.

The open evening starts at 6.30pm.
