Here's a rallying call for my little Fiesta

My love affair with Ford goes back many years - as I used to drive Ford Lotus Cortinas.

I raced and rallied Escorts for years too.

And when I started the school for young drivers, Ford it was who came in and supported me.

Currently I am driving a Ford Fiesta.

It's a car anybody would love to have.

It is smart, practical and gets me around in great comfort.

I think it is a great little 3dr, although I must say I think it feels bigger.

The 125bhp engine is energetic.

It's a 1-litre 3cyl Zetec Sport turbocharged engine with Ford's EcoBoost technology to make it that bit more economical.

I regard it as the prettiest car I've had in years.

And it's in the most gorgeous red colour.

Indeed, the only drawback is that I have to be careful to drive impeccably because it attracts so much attention.

I can tell you that it is a real little flier when you get it on the motorway.

And I love it.
