Isle of Man TT World Record Lap

Every year when I watch the Isle of Man TT it makes me super anxious, because you just know that if one little thing goes wrong it’s game over.
Here we have rally driver Mark Higgins pushing his 2011 Subaru WRX STI to the limit around the Isle of Man TT Mountain Course acheiving a record time of 19-minutes and 37-seconds and an average speed of 115mph.

Make sure you watch the end of this clip where Mark discusses his 150mph close call with a journalist in the passenger seat. Pretty damn sure that lucky journalist had some breaking news in his pants after that little encounter.

More TT after the jump

This gives you an idea what 150mph looks like from a spectators view.
