If you haven’t gotten behind the wheel of one of Ford’s sport-tuned Fiesta or Focus STs, you are really missing out. These hot, little Ecoboost hatches have enough performance spunk under the hood to keep you entertained, and they offer handling that will put a smile on your face. These attributes make them an excellent daily driver option to complement your Mustang, Raptor or other performance Ford.
Now we understand if you don’t have it in the budget to add another car to the driveway, but Ford is offering you the chance to pick up a 2014 Fiesta ST on the house as part of its Drift With Ford sweepstakes. All you have to do is text FORD to 89800 or visit DriftWithFord.com to enter the contest. (The rules are here if you want to check them out.)
The winner will not only be fortunate enough to drive home in a 2014 Fiesta ST, but it will be upgraded with gear from Ford Racing, K&N, Nitto Tire, and Rotiform Wheels. That’s right, you’ll get a hot-rodded Fiesta ST that’s ready to go have fun.
As with any performance car, it would be great if you could learn how to make the most of it, and the Drift With Ford contest will help you get the most of your new ST in two ways. First, you will get a free ST Octane Academy school at Miller Motorsports Park. The Octane Academy is included with the purchase of any Fiesta or Focus ST, but you get it with your free ST.
If you want to know more about the ST Octane Academy, here’s a 30-second primer:
The second way they will help you get the most out of your new car is with a private drifting lesson. This won’t be just any lesson, however. It will come from the man himself—Vaughn Gittin Jr. The Formula Drift champion will show you how to drive like this:
If all that weren’t enough, you will also get an exclusive visit to the Hoonigan Racing garage for a private tour. Those that have seen the antics of Hoonigans like Ken Block on YouTube should be stoked to check this place out. Our friends at Ford Racing recently took the tour, so here’s a preview:
By now, I’m sure you’ve already texted or visited the site to enter, so good luck. If you win, be sure to post about it on SVTP.
