Subaru WRX STI: his record lap the Isle of Man

The Isle of Man, the theater of the Tourist Trophy, which fans of motorcycle racing known as one of the most dangerous in the world, is also a paradise for those who love the four wheels. Its fast 60 km of public roads are traveled by the fastest superbike in just over 17 minutes (the record of 17'12 "3 belongs to the legendary John McGuinness).

But how long does a normal sports car? The new record has just been marked by the Subaru WRX STI: 19'56 "7. That the legendary Mountain Course is attended by automobile manufacturers as the Nürburgring, for obvious reasons-traffic, witness the fact that the previous record of about 21 ', date back to 1990.

The old record owned by Tony Pond on Rover 827 Vitesse, which was also the first to get unavelocità average over 100 mph (160 km / h).
