Ever driven a beaten up car? That too, in uneven and slushy terrain? Here’s your chance to live the experience! Paddock Hacks, the upcoming TV series produced by Top Shelf, takes a sneak peek into the practice of driving beaten-up cars into extinction on farm properties. The creative mind behind the show is David White, the former Central Hawke’s Bay man.
The series, which will feature the motorsport phenomenon, aims to showcase rural New Zealand and modified old cars in the craziest ways possible, and then thrashing them through mud, along river beds, or any accessible harsh terrain.
The teaser of the series, which has been posted on YouTube has already attracted more hits numbering more than half a lakh.
The pilot features David White driving blindfolded and it was shot at Takapau and Waipawa. “New Zealand …New Zealand men … New Zealand cars … one sport … one TV show … Paddock Hacks coming soon,” says the YouTube trailer.
The publicity material of the program says it is the usual weekend entertainment event of many people in New Zealand that has inspired the creation of such a television series.
Producer Top Shelf has pointed out that this is a show made for everyone who loves the smell of petrol and New Zealand’s can-do attitude. The series will travel throughout New Zealand.
