What do the two tall chimneys belong to, just above the race-track?

The chimney above the race track (which in the days of the photograph was a running / cycle track) belonged to the power generator which supplied electricty for the Tower Grounds ie Fair rides and cafes / bars. The other chimney further along Grosvenor Drive is Bennetts Laundry.

Loc: ex Wallasey now Atlanta GA USA
I remember riding my bike around that track when I was a kid (in the early 60s), quite a scary ride (steep banking!); sneaked in a couple of times
It was disused at the time I think, although maybe the Rakers (New Brighton F.C.) still played there then (if not I wonder when they left?) The Stock cars came a few years later...

Anyone know what the track was built for, originally? Was it intended for bike (bicycle) racing?
