This cool 70s t-shirt comes from the Pippingarra Speedway in Port Hedland, Australia. The speedway was built in 1968 for hot rod racing and prior to that hot rod racing in the area was simply held on a crude dirt track. The track was built by two traffic inspectors Roy Mitchell and Kevin Whiteford and it only lasted a short time before it was destroyed by a flood and had to be rebuilt. A new 600 meter track was built in 1970 and it began attracting a good amount of attention as The Port Hedland Speedway Club's first race meeting of the 1972 season managed to attract 1,000 attendees.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There are two repairs on the front, see pics.
