THE Ford Fiesta has been with us for my motoring life and its sporty versions for nearly as long. Many people think 1981’s XR2 was the original sporting Fiesta, but that was 1980’s 1.3-litre Sport, the first Fiesta hot-hatch. My friend and former colleague, Kevin Mills, owned one and loaned it to me so I could cover a county championship game between Muskerry and Millstreet, in Ballyvourney.
