What follows, Barry describes as "beyond dangerous", "the world's most dangerous rally stage" and "bleurgh". It turns out that if I can't actually see the vertiginous drops, I can drive faster.

Eventually, sometime near half-eleven, we get to a hotel near Taroudant and retire for the night. Barry doesn't speak.
