2016 Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man TT -- Flat Out
Watch Mark Higgins take Bray Hill at 170 MPH.

The Ultimate Test Drive
1988. Tony Pond setting the fastest production car time on the IOM TT course. He managed 37.73 miles in 22min 44 seconds. An average speed of 99.58 mph for the whole course in a standard Rover 800 Fastback Vitesse - just with racing tyres. He was trying for the 100. This footage is with a local reporter in car, after Tony had already set the fast time. Captured from a VHS Video, so quality is as was then. Exhilarating speed in a car so close to the walls - not sure I'd ever be brave enough to do it.

Isle of man tt cars quicker than bikes?
In 2016 a prototype suberu was raced around the isle of man tt coures and it set a fantasticly quick time 128.730mph Auto car not me 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇 Three-time British Rally champion Mark Higgins blew his own Manx TT course lap record out of the water this week with an average speed of 128.730mph in a Prodrive-built Subaru. This is the third year Higgins has attempted the record. In 2011 he beat his hero Tony Pond's best time for the 37.73-mile lap by some margin; driving a Rover 827 Vitesse, Pond went around in 22m09.1s in 1990, posting the first ever four-wheeled lap at more than 100mph. Higgins set 19m56.67s in 2011, returning in '14 to lower that to 19m15.88s - which equated to 117.51mph. Both of those were set in largely standard Subaru WRX STIs.

Higgins has now lapped the course in 17min 35.139sec, at an average of 128.730mph. Subscribe to Autocar now: What do you think of Mark Higgins' impressive performance?
