Subaru WRX Isle of Man TT Record Official Video

We’ve already brought to you details and video of Subaru WRX record run at Isle of Man TT course. But now Subaru released their own edit of the run, featuring greatest moments of the adrenaline-filled lap, which damn nearly killed driver Mark Higgins and his journalist passenger when he nearly lost control of the car at 150 mph. The funny bit is, he blames it on the passenger because of his weight! Read more about the “moment” after the jump.

“This is one of the most daunting tracks I have ever driven, and the most terrifying,” said Higgins, a Manx native. “We were only able to get two practice runs and on our second practice I had the biggest “moment” of my career. We had a passenger on the run and so coming into Bray Hill at more than 150 MPH, the extra weight compressed the suspension more than on previous runs and shifted the Subaru to the left and then right as I corrected–it was a real tank slapper. The whole thing went by so quickly that we never slowed below 110 MPH, and then we were back on the power. It was amazing and the helicopter shots really show just how hairy it really was.”
