When setting a new record a few days ago, Mark Higgins said that he felt he could do better.  Indeed, Higgins did break his recent record again on the final run on the 37-mile course with an average lap speed of 117.51 mph in 19 minutes and 15 seconds, compared to 116.47 mph average lap speed in 19 minutes and 26 seconds achieved earlier.

Here is what Higgins said about the 2015 Subaru WRX STI that he drove:

“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.”

The Subaru WRX STI that Higgins drove is a stock U.S.-Spec 2015 WRX STI.  The car has been equipped with additional parts and modified for safety as well as being able to handling high speeds and various conditions of the course.  The added parts include an FIA-spec roll-cage, racing seat and harness, fire suppression system, modified springs and dampers.
