Subaru TT Challenge 2
Subaru returns to the world's most formidable racetrack, the Isle of Man TT
Course, with the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI to set a new lap record.
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
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
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.

With the first two events in the 2014 Rally America Championship complete,
Subaru Rally Team USA has claimed two podium finishes; a win at SnoDrift
Rally for David Higgins, and 2nd Place for Travis Pastrana at the Rally in
the 100 Acre Wood. Now, the team's focus shifts to the third round of the
Rally America Championship, the Oregon Trail Rally, where the goal is to
get both Subaru team cars on the podium together.
The Oregon Trail Rally was the second event back with the Subaru team for
Travis Pastrana after over three years away from the sport. Pastrana has
been getting up to speed with his new 2014 Subaru WRX STI while working for
the first time with veteran co-driver Chrissie Beavis. The duo were clearly
another step faster in Oregon and
took the lead of the event early, winning three of the four stages held on
David Higgins and co-driver Craig Drew hit trouble early on the second day,
dropping over a minute to Pastrana in the process. As Higgins began to
charge back he was then hit with time penalties for hitting cones in a
chicane, thus putting himself even farther behind Pastrana. Higgins found
himself still nearly 40 seconds adrift of Pastrana at the start of the
Higgins and Drew had just six stages covering 40 miles to make up those 40
seconds and they went flat out to do so. The battle goes down to the final
stages...who would emerge victorious in the battle of the teammates?
