�The Exhibitions Team had a great time designing and planning Speedway King: The Ivan Mauger Story. We were well aware of Ivan�s status as a speedway legend here in Christchurch, but were amazed by the number of international visitors, from as far away as Finland and the Czech REpublic, who recognised the name and were excited by the exhibition.�

Stephen Ruscoe,
Exhibitions Manager

�Speedway King: The Ivan Mauger Story not only showcases some fantastic memorabilia from Ivan�s career, but gives people an opportunity to learn about the amazing achievements and stories behind these objects.�

Lesley Colsell, General Manager Museum Programmes

�It really is a great honour to be able to celebrate and display the achievements of one of the greatest speedway riders of all time. The fact that Ivan grew up in Christchurch and has given us the chance to tell his story here at Canterbury Museum makes it all the more relevant and special for our local visitors.�

Anthony Wright,
Director
