TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Video: Watch Mark Higgins’ record-breaking Isle of Man lap

Earlier this month, we reported that former British rally champion Mark Higgins has broken the lap record for production cars on the Isle of Man TT course in the all-new Subaru WRX STI with a time of 19 minutes and 26 seconds--about 30 seconds faster than the record he set in 2011 with the previous model.

Apparently, that wasn't enough for Higgins. Subaru has just released a short, seven-minute video where he sets a time of 19 minutes and 16 seconds--10 seconds faster than the record he just recently set.

"Watching the new video provides an insight into what it is like to drive this course flat-out," said Higgins. "The buildup to the lap is very intense and it is a fight the whole way around. I learn more every lap I take. The final run I was able to do a much cleaner lap. Just an amazing experience, and I hope everyone enjoys the video."

So, while we’re waiting for the "full, unedited in-car driver point of view of the entire record lap with commentary," which Subaru promised it would release soon, watch the condensed version of his record-breaking run below.
