The hot-selling Ford Fiesta – sold in all areas of the globe – can now add “world traveler” to its growing list of firsts, covering a total of 15,210 miles of travels in just over two months.
Fiesta World Tour 2010 was a road trip like no other, and was created to celebrate the global nature of one of Ford’s most fun-to-drive vehicles while traveling around the globe and enjoying all it has to offer. The tour kicked off in Southern California, headed east across America, through a section of Canada, and wandered about Europe before heading to the Middle East and Asia. The journey wrapped up in Sydney after touring through the wide-open Australian outback. With a group of journalists behind the wheel, the two-car road trip became more of an experience than a drive. Along the way, the following fun facts were logged:
Highlights of the adventure included:
“We’ve traveled upward of 1,000 miles in one day. And at the other end of the spectrum, we’ve also spent time just cruising around cities like Singapore,” said Jeremy Hart, expedition leader. “We even visited the first international airport in Australia, which used to take 34 days to reach from London. We drove to it in the same time. That made us realize that even in 2010, you can still have an expedition, and you can feel like you’re exploring. We didn’t want to just fly somewhere – we wanted to experience everything along the way.”
