It doesn't last. Leading in the McLaren, I mistakenly made the assumption the Mac's satellite navigation is actually capable of reading a map, and become immediately lost, trailing a series of increasingly frustrated cars in my wake like a mass of noisy, evil bunting. I try to self-navigate, only to flip our convoy onto some roads best described as ‘rural', and worst described as ‘not actually roads', though for that one 12-year-old boy riding his father's rusting bicycle down the lane, I suspect that we made at least one person's day.
