Motorbikes at the Aranui Speedway, off Rowan Ave and Pages Road. The 'holding pit' in the foreground where bikes and racers waited for their race. Stockcars and midgets also raced, a popular form of entertainment at the time. "There was only the picture theatre and speedway". A lot of the early helmets were made out of papier mache.
