This might be a case where, whoever the artist was who did this mural, didn't do enough research.
I came upon it in its formative stages some weeks back, and then spotted that it had been completed, so took a photograph last Friday. This is situated on Great North Road, close to the Housing Corp flats at Tuarangi Road corner, and is quite near to Stadium Road, the access to Western Springs Speedway. You'd think, therefore (I would, for example) that this relates to that particular attraction.
Because I know nothing about speedway at all, but my friends Bill and Barbara Ellis do, I sent the images to them. Their comment?
What was the artist thinking? These are stockcars or production saloons that race at Waikaraka Park Onehunga not at Western Springs. Western Springs has midgets, sprintcars, TQ s etc.
Fair enough comment, I think, when you compare images from Western Spring's Speedway's website to those from Waikaraka.
