Subaru has finally released footage of Mark Higgins' record setting lap at the Isle of Man TT Road Course in the 2015 WRX STI.

During his first run, Higgins was able to complete the 37 mile (59.5 km) long course in 19 minutes and 26 seconds at an average speed of 116.47 mph (187.44 km/h). This beat his previous record of 19 minutes and 56.7 seconds in a 2010 WRX STI.

While Higgins beat his previous record, he felt he could still go faster. As a result, he made a second attempt and lapped the course in 19 minutes and 15 seconds at an average speed of 117.51 mph (189.11 km/h).

According to Higgins, “This was a great run when everything came together and I was able to do a much cleaner lap as I am still learning where I can go flat in this car. I can’t say enough about the new WRX STI and how much abuse it has taken as we have really ridden it hard over this course for three very fast runs and this is definitely not an easy course. The chassis on this new car is just night and day.”
