Karel Willaert was a Test Engineer at Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium. Forty Years ago his team tested the prototype Mark 1 Fiesta. They drove the Fiesta 24-hours a day on all surfaces and conditions before it went on the market. 40 years later he gets back into the first generation Fiesta and takes us along on the drive.
