In this episode of te reo adventure show Pāia, co-presenter Waioira McLeod wonders what today’s challenge will be. Rereahu Collier informs her that they’re going for a spin in a V8 muscle car. After four laps at the Hampton Downs track near Meremere, the one who drives the fastest wins. The loser will have to do 50 leg raises on the spot. Rereahu goes first and tries to remember all the instructions. Waioira finds that driving at high speed isn’t so easy.
Te āhua nei kei te ora te waka i muri i aua mahi pōrangi. Autaia tonu! (It seems the car is still alive after that useless effort. Not bad!)– Waioira McLeod ponders co-host Rereahu Collier's efforts behind the wheel
