Mark Higgins has only done a few full speed laps in his Prodrive-built Subaru WRX STI at the Isle of Man TT course, attempting to break his previous record of 19:15 at an average speed of 117 mph. In those few laps he has already gone past and blown away the old time and speed by a huge margin! His new record now sits at 17:35 with an average speed of 128.73 miles per hour and a top speed of 169 mph. He and the team still have a few more laps to do over the next week. Do you think he’ll be able to break the 130 mph mark?
Check out the video below for clips from Mark’s first laps around the 37.73 mile-long course.
