It was 1991. A wet Goodyear tyre test at Silverstone. Hundreds of media were there, but probably only one who wanted to be. Which would be me. I’d not been party to any of the arrangements, but had been told that if I were to present myself to the McLaren motorhome at lunchtime I could be driven around the track in the Honda NSX I’d brought with me by Ayrton Senna. Yes, really. And, no, I couldn’t quite believe it either.
