Mark Higgins’ lap around the TT course in a Subaru rally car today (Monday 6/6/11) turned out to be a very convincing way of how to break Tony Pond’s four-wheel record for the TT Mountain course.
The Manxman completed a circuit at an average speed of 113.505 miles an hour, easily beating Pond’s 1990 effort, when he clocked 102.
I captured this picture of the Scooby returning up Pit Lane in the TT Grandstand after smashing the record.
