Ford Gives 43 Fiestas To Rally School, Wants You To Hoon Them

Illustration for article titled Ford Gives 43 Fiestas To Rally School, Wants You To Hoon Them

Ford has given 43 of the European-spec Fiesta hatchbacks used in the Fiesta Movement to the Team O'Neil Rally School in Dalton, New Hampshire. $495 gets you one day behind the wheel with professional instruction. Anybody else smell a bargain?

The pairing is tied the Monster Energy Fiesta that hoon extraordinaire Ken Block races in Rally America events. The cars have been modified with roll bars, rally suspensions, and off-road tires. Team O'Neil is the official driving school of Rally America, which means that yes, they want you to get sideways.

So go. Why? Because $495 to spend a day hooning around in one of the greatest small cars ever built is a heck of a deal. Remember: Your left foot does the work. Don't get sloppy.

Ok. Thank you, Ford, for finally starting to bring some of the better Euro-Fords to us here in the nation of your birth. I appreciate that you're starting to harvest the fruit of your global development network, hopefully attaining better economies of scale and becoming a more sound company hence providing better returns for your stockholders. That's all well and good. Now, please, give us some small, lightweight, economical, good-handling cars with hatchbacks that aren't FOUR DOOR!!! Why should I take that nice light-weight, zippy hatchback and add a crap-tonne of weight with a bunch of chassis flex so some brain-dead soccer mom can install a rocket-seat in the back and continue to clog up our moderately twisty road-bits like human cholesterol. The good ol' US-Freakin'-A needs solid transport for all our yearnin' to be free masses, I just can't figure out why it has to have 4 doors attached to deaden everything for those of us that don't need a real back seat.

Or maybe that's just me...
