Tow Hook / Tow Strap

Can anyone give me some guidance on mounting a tow hook or tow strap to my FiST? I do most of my track days with the BMW CCA and they very much encourage having at least one tow hook on the car. On the BMW's it's easy because the threaded inserts are easy to get to on both bumpers.

The FiST not so much...

I've looked at a few intercooler DIY's to see what the structure behind the bumper looks like and it looks like there's a location for a tow strap bolt but it's hidden behind the bumper. I don't mind cutting a tiny slot to put a strap on and I'm fine with pulling the bumper. But before I do I wanted to make sure I was going down the right path.

Any suggestions?

I read somewhere that Euro Fiestas have a standard mount for a tow point.

If true, the cleanest way would be to retrofit that hardware.
I just went through a Mountune FMIC installation on our USDM car, and there isn't an OEM mount. There are plenty of places to fashion one, however.
I think replicating the Euro tow point would give us an OEM look as opposed to aluminum plates or straps sticking out of a body seam or slot.

I'll eventually do it but its not very high on my list either.
