With an average lap speed of 116.47 mph, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI, driven by Mark Higgins, has set a new lap record by finishing the 37-mile Isle of Man TT Road Course in just 19 minutes and 26 seconds, breaking Higgins’ own record of 115.36 mph, 19 minutes and 57.6 seconds that was set three years ago on the 2010 Subaru WRX STI.

According to Higgins, he was happy with the record, but he could do better, he said

“I think there is definitely time that we left on the course.  I lost time on the second part of the track, overshooting my braking point at Sign Post corner.  I actually hand-braked the turn in the end, so I feel we can definitely do better.”

The WRX STI that set the record was a U.S spec Subaru WRX STI 2015 model year.  It is completely redesigned inside and out for 2015 and is powered by a 2.5-L 4-Cyl BOXER turbocharged SI-DRIVE engine, producing an output of 305 horsepower and 290 lb.-ft. of torque.

The 2015 WRX STI has also earned 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK award from Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), announced last month by Subaru.
