Subaru Releases Full Video Isle of Man Record LapJune 27th, 2014
We recently shared a highlight reel from driver Mark Higgins’ record setting 4-wheel lap of the Isle of Man TT Course, and now we have footage of the entire 19 minute, 15 second lap from the driver’s perspective. Higgins broke the record driving a 2015 Subaru WRX STI, completing the 37-mile course with an average speed of 117.51 MPH.
The voiceover from Higgins is highly informative, as he walks us through the entire lap, from warming up the tires through his record breaking finish on one of the world’s most deadly courses. Despite all the treacherous twists, turns, walls and hedges, Mark hits speeds as high as 165MPH or more, and takes some corners at over 140MPH. It’s amazing how much of the course he takes driving flat out.
And if you’re wondering about the car that Mark drove, Subaru has provided a great video which gives an in-depth look at the record-setting WRX STI:
