Mark Higgins Narrates His Isle of Man TT Record Setting Lap

By now, you know that Mark Higgins and Subaru took their new WRX STI to the Isle of Mann and dominated his own track record. A new video has surfaced from Subaru that has Higgins talking us through the entire blazing-fast lap.
In addition to the in-car footage, the video shows elevation change, speed, RPM, g-forces, and the driver’s heart rate, respiratory rate, and skin temperature as he makes his way through the deadly course. Higgins crosses the start line at nearly 155 mph and gets up to around 175 mph before he slows for the first big turn. By the end of the 37 mile run, he had averaged nearly 129 mph, which is pretty crazy given all the twists and turns he encounters.
It’s just insane to me how fast drivers go in the Isle of Man TT with narrow roads, homes, cars, and spectators lining the narrow roads.
