Man-Sized Action: Subaru Releases Narrated In-Car Video of Mark Higgins IoMTT Record Lap

Mark Higgins in-car 2016 Isle of Man TT

A couple of weeks back, we posted the rough-cut video of Mark Higgins’ record-breaking lap of the Snaefell Mountain Course on the Isle of Man during this year’s TT. Now Subaru has released a full in-car video of the 17:35.139 lap, narrated by the Manx rally driver.

Watch! As a multitude of bugs collect on the Prodrive-prepared Subie‘s windshield! Thrill! To Higgins’s near-160-mph blast across the start-finish line and up over 170 through the site of his near-disaster in 2011! Hear! Higgins calmly and evenly describe the obviously insane things he’s doing at ridiculous speeds. Marvel! At the fact that dudes on literbikes are going even faster. Mutter! To yourself through the whole thing about how totally nuts this endeavor is.



Seriously, the clip is absolutely transfixing to watch, and it’s fascinating to listen to Higgins describe the course and its corners as he attacks them at patently silly velocities:
