The Taranaki Historic Speedway Association was formed in 2002 with the aim of
recording the history and preserving the vehicles and records of speedway
racing in the province of Taranaki in New Zealand.
The first meeting was called together by Laurie Callender and included former speedway driver/riders Dave Gifford, Max Rutherford, Eric Beardmore, Bruce Ovenden, Russell Miscall, Neil Rook, Ces Budd, Wayne Paul and others. The above were all competitors or involved with the Waiwakaiho Speedway, which was the first fully active speedway in this province and one of the first in New Zealand.
