rally | subaru | June 21, 2014
Subaru rally driver Mark Higgins set the record for the fastest time around the Isle of Man 37.75-mile rally course with a time of just 19 minutes, 26 seconds, breaking his own record time he recorded in 2011. Then he proceeded to top that time on his next run, this time setting the world record time of 19:15 minutes with an average speed was 117.51 mph.
Fortunately, Subaru has posted video highlights of Higgins’s record-setting run. In the video, we not only see key portions of Higgins’s record run from his viewpoint, but we also see his heart rate, breathing rate, and the g-force he’s experiencing throughout the race. The entire video is really well done and worth watching in its entirety. Spoiler alert: he sets the world record.
Now we’d like to see the full in-car lap.
