Motorsports: Subaru will attempt record time for Isle of Man Attack in new WRX STI

The Isle of Man Attack is one of the most iconic road course events in motorsports, particularly the FIA World Rally Championship, mainly because it’s one of the most difficult competitions because of the daunting course involved.

It is a loop that involves 37.8 miles in total, nearly three times that of the Nurburgring Nordschliefe and for the last few years, Subaru has played a major role for providing the automobile for the last few winning titles.

It all started in 2011 when renowned racer, Mark Higgins set a mind-blowing record in a Subaru WRX STI, clocking a record lap of 19 minutes and 37 seconds, at an average speed of 115.36 MPH.

Last year, he broke that record in a 2015 Subaru WRX STI not once, but twice, with the first time ringing in 19 miuntes at 26 seconds at 116.47 MPH, and then again at 19 minutes at 15 seconds, at 117.50 MPH. This year, Higgins plans to do the same, with the latest 2016 WRX STI.
