One of the most en­thu­si­as­tic Sprint Test en­trants was Jonathan God­bold, whose bud­get-build Fi­esta only owes him about a grand! It started as a £200 1.3, and now fea­tures a 1.7 Puma en­gine, Avo coilovers and big­ger brakes, and it’s been on a se­ri­ous diet: the in­te­rior’s stripped out with Co­bra buck­ets, the dash has been light­ened and so have the bumpers, and it has light­weight door­cards and poly­car­bon­ate win­dows. Find­ing bar­gains on Face­book and eBay is the key to keep­ing the costs down, and Jonathan’s built him­self a fan­tas­tic lit­tle road/track toy here for peanuts. He ran a 12.3-sec­ond time on the Sprint Test, which was enough to trou­ble some more ex­pen­sive builds. QUICK SPEC 1.7 Puma en­gine, Avo coilovers, poly­bushes, 300mm brakes, Co­bra buck­ets, TRS har­nesses
