High-speed ride with Subaru Rally Team USA's David Higgins at STPR 2012
Ride inside the cockpit and on the front bumper with David Higgins and Craig Drew in their Subaru Rally Team USA STI as they race flat out through the forest stages of Pennsylvania's STPR Rally. Watch more videos at www.subaru.com/rally
Subaru driver David Higgins completed the biggest comeback of his career to finish second overall on the sinuous and technical dirt roads of Pennsylvania's 2012 Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally (STPR), round four of six in the 2012 Rally America National Championship. Higgins dropped over three minutes to the leaders after a mechanical problem struck his Subaru on the event's first stage dropping him down to 13th Overall. With his BFGoodrich-tires shod Subaru WRX STI fully repaired for STPR's second and much longer day of rallying, Higgins pushed hard and climbed the leaderboard, finding himself on the podium at the finish. The strong result retains Higgins' substantial lead in the 2012 Rally America Championship standings and puts him within a handful of points of securing his second straight Rally America crown with two events still remaining.

David Higgins and Craig Drew of Subaru Rally Team USA may be back-to-back
champions, but at the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, Ken Block has been king.
A win here at round two for Higgins would rock the boat and shake things up
for the rest of the series. But, an overnight storm in Missouri has dumped
snow on the high-speed stages, placing the whole outcome into question. Can
the teams keep it on the road in the treacherous conditions? Can Higgins
and Drew get their first career win at this event?

world's worst weather. And one of the nation's oldest motor sport events.
New Hampshire, and the legendary Mount Washington Auto Road where 7.4 miles
of narrow, death-defying tarmac and dirt cling to the mountain's slopes.

shatter old records. Today's benchmark to beat is 6 minutes 11 seconds...
With an all-star cast of past and current record holders ready to push the
bar one more time, including Subaru Rally Team USA's David Higgins and

Subaru Isle of Man TT Record Attempt
Subaru of America, Inc. has released a new YouTube video of the 2011 Subaru
WRX STI setting an all-time course record for the historic Isle of Man TT
Mountain Course. The 5 minute 25 second video highlights in graphic detail
the speed and drama surrounding rally driver Mark Higgins' lap that
averaged 115.356 MPH. After the run, Higgins talks through the "moment" at
Brey Hill when he momentarily loses, and then regains, control of the WRX
STI at more than 150 MPH.
Driving a US specification 2011 Subaru WRX STI, Higgins achieved speeds of
162 MPH and a lapped time of 19 minutes 37 seconds over the 37-mile track,
navigating more than 200 corners.
"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
The WRX STI was a production US spec car running a standard 305 HP turbocharged boxer engine. Some safety
modifications were made. The Subaru was equipped with a Lifeline fire
suppression system, Hockley Motorsports roll cage, motordrive competition
seats, Mintex brake pads (but stock calipers and rotors), and a louder open
Exhaust to warn spectators of the
on-coming car. The speed limiter was turned off to allow a higher maximum
speed; off-the shelf Tien springs and dampers were added to accommodate the
numerous high-speed jumps on the circuit, sending the WRX STI almost four
feet off the ground. The car ran on street legal Pirelli P Zero Trofeo

first foray into rally driving at Dirt Fish Rally School. There, Don

From the skidpad to the slalom and the boneyard, Lang tries her hand at
every course and, by the end of the day, declares herself ready for The
Wedge. Situated as a full rally stage, The Wedge offers real rally driving,
and making one mistake can equate to wrapping your car around a tree. Find
