Post Watch Mark Higgins whomp the Isle of Man TT course in a 2015 WRX STI

Filed under: Motorsports, Sedan, Performance, Videos, Subaru

Subaru has made another trip to the infamous Isle of Man TT, bringing along its all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI. The goal? Best the already impressive time set by rally ace Mark Higgins and the 2011 Impreza WRX STI on the same swirling, high-paced ribbon of tarmac. Of course, you already know how that went.

What we didn't know when the story first broke, though, was that Subaru was monitoring data. Specifically, Higgins' data. He was fitted with a monitor that would record his heart rate, breaths, skin temperature and the g forces he was faced with as he lapped the 37-plus-mile road course. While Higgins and Co. were aiming to best their 2011 time (19:56.7), this year's effort also saw a push to beat the time of the sidecar racers.

You can get a recap of the entire event, with plenty of footage and data from Higgins' lap in the exhilarating video below. Take a look.Continue reading Watch Mark Higgins whomp the Isle of Man TT course in a 2015 WRX STI
