FI­ESTA ST GOES UN­DER­GROUND

Fast Ford - - News -

When you hear the phrase ‘Europe’s great­est driv­ing roads’, what springs to mind? The Stelvio Pass? The Col de Turini? How about a salt mine 400 me­tres un­der­ground…?

Ford have been putting to­gether a video se­ries doc­u­ment­ing the con­ti­nent’s great­est roads for keen driv­ers, and have taken the bril­liantly un­usual move of putting a new Fi­esta ST way, way be­neath the sur­face of the Earth with WRC hot­shot El­fyn Evans at the wheel. “The salt is ac­tu­ally like fine gravel to drive on, quite slip­pery to be hon­est, es­pe­cially on road tyres,” said Evans. “You ex­pect it to be claus­tro­pho­bic but ac­tu­ally it’s quite the op­po­site, a great place to re­ally en­joy the new Fi­esta ST.” The sound of the ex­haust res­onat­ing through the 60km tun­nel net­work is re­ally quite some­thing too.
