The average passer-by wouldn’t normally look at a stock Ford Fiesta and think, “oh, I’d like to test that car out on a track.” Slap an ST badge on it, and put four-time X-games gold medalist Tanner Foust behind the wheel, however, and you've created a car enthusiast's wet dream. This is the situation I found myself in last week, when I made the trek out to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.
At first glance the Ford Fiesta ST is an unassuming, small, hatchback that doesn’t elicit much excitement. But despite looking like a sportier version of a Prius, the Fiesta ST makes up for what it lacks in looks by blowing you away with its on-track performance. It’s essentially the rallycross version of Barry Sanders, because of its ability to nimbly weave in and out of corners and drift effortlessly into the next turn.
