Subaru WRX STI record the Isle of Man

On the track of the Isle of Man, a place famous for the reckless motorcycle race that there tient each year, the Subaru WRX STI with the steering wheel the driver Mark Higgins has made a new record, covering nearly 61 km that make up the path of Historical Tourist Trophy in 19 minutes, 56 seconds and 7 / 10, exceeding by more than two minutes the previous record set with a road car by Tony Pond in June 1990.

Higgins, who knows the location of the TT certainly well being born in the Isle of Man, has seen his Subaru with an average speed of 113 km / h, reaching to touch even 162 km / h. These numbers are very important, especially as related to a road journey as fascinating as technically difficult, in fact sometimes very tight with walls that are touched many times by cars run at speed, with the backdrop of a sometimes hostile territory "wild" that almost gives the impression that time has stopped giving the taste of life in ancient times.

A time of cars, now the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, which is held in the Snaefell Mountain Course is reserved for bikes and is included in the World Championship Formula TT.
