National MP Mark Mitchell has revealed his talent for driving like a hooligan and smashing into other cars.
Mr Mitchell and fellow MPs Alfred Ngaro and Denise Lee had a bet on who could stay on the track the longest in the demolition derby at Waikaraka Speedway at the weekend.
Despite a "small engine fire", the former Defence Minister Mr Mitchell was victorious in his automatic Nissan Sunny.
"I spent most of the time trying to tune up my radio, and when I looked up, for some reason I was in the top 10," Mr Mitchell said.
Losers Mr Ngaro and Ms Lee had to do a "walk of shame" down the Opposition corridor, wearing helmets and t-shirts printed with the winner's likeness to the morning's caucus meeting.
Mr Mitchell said he was keen to return next year.
"I have a newfound respect for Nissan Sunnys," he said.
"My car was much smaller by the end of the night. I had a small engine fire. I did manage to get into the top 10 but then my wheel collapsed."
Ms Lee was also in a Nissan Sunny and Mr Ngaro was in a Holden Vectra that "looked the coolest".
Mr Mitchell is married to Peggy, widow of champion rally car driver Possum Bourne.
He wore a racing suit emblazoned with Possum Bourne's name.
