Setting a new Lap Record! Isle of Man TT Course | Rimrock Subaru

Subaru returns to the world’s most formidable racetrack, the Isle of Man TT Course, with the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI to set a new lap record.

In a final timed run on the Isle of Man TT Course, Mark Higgins driving a 2015 Subaru WRX STI breaks his lap record of the fabled 37-mile course with an average lap speed of 117.510 and a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds. In Higgins’ record lap earlier this week, several errors caused him to lose time and he was determined to get more out of car. This new lap record breaks the 116.470 MPH average and time of 19:26 set Wednesday. The previous record of 115.36 MPH was set in 2011 in a WRX STI.

Subaru Broke The Isle Of Man TT Record, Again | Rimrock Subaru

June 6, 2014

IN FINAL RUN, 2015 SUBARU WRX STI BREAKS ISLE OF MAN LAP RECORD AT 117.5 MPH

Douglas, Isle of Man –  Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that in a final timed run on the Isle of Man TT Course, Mark Higgins driving a 2015 Subaru WRX STI breaks his lap record of the fabled 37-mile course with an average lap speed of 117.510 and a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds. In Higgins’ record lap earlier this week, several errors caused him to lose time and he was determined to get more out of car. This new lap record breaks the 116.470 MPH average and time of 19:26 set Wednesday. The previous record of 115.36 MPH was set in 2011 in a WRX STI.

Isle Of Man Record

The run was completed in a U.S.-spec 2015 Subaru WRX STI.

“This was a great run when everything came together and I was able to do a much cleaner lap as I am still learning where I can go flat in this car,” said Mark Higgins. “I am really happy to beat the lap records set by John McGuiness in the Zero Bikes and the sidecar lap record as John was riding me about that! 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 car Higgins drove is a stock U.S.-spec 2015 WRX STI, with the exception of an FIA-spec roll-cage, racing seat and harness, fire suppression system and modified springs and dampers to handle the sustained high speeds and changing conditions of the course. The Subaru WRX STI also featured Dunlop Direzza tires and a high decibel straight exhaust for crowd safety. The speed limiter was also removed from the car.

“I would like to thank Subaru for making this possible and also a big thanks to all the organizers and marshals who volunteer their time here and who made this drive happen and also made it a safe run,” Higgins added.

“We knew there was more speed in the car after Wednesday’s run and we are very happy the organizers made this happen today,” said Dominick Infante, National Manager of Product Communications, Subaru of America, Inc. “Mark was really flying on today’s lap and could show what the new chassis can do on a circuit as demanding as the Isle of Man TT.”

The event, which has been comprehensively risk assessed by both Subaru and the ACU, including consultation with all relevant parties, took place under full, closed road race conditions.

David Cretney, the Isle of Man Government Political Member responsible for Tourism and Motorsport, commented:

“We are pleased (delighted) to be able to help one of the TT’s valued, long term partners in delivering their promotional campaign for the new vehicle. Subaru of America has made a major commitment to the event, both financially and as a provider of course cars, which helps us to reduce the fiscal contribution required by the public purse.

In his previous attempt on the course, Higgins created one of the most memorable race videos when he had a self-described “moment” at the bottom of Bray Hill at 150 MPH. The video has received almost 4 million views. After setting the record Higgins stated, “Setting the record was both the most exhilarating and the most frightening thing I have ever done.”

Stay tuned for a full video release of the run.

WRX drivers can test the 265 hp and 244 lb-ft of torque developed by the SUBARU BOXER 4-cylinder engine. All this power transfers through Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.The WRX STI engine turns out 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. The WRX STI seriously raises the bar with its sophisticated drivetrain technology. Its systems include:

  • Subaru Intelligent Drive, which selects from three different engine modes
  • Driver Controlled Center Differential, with automatic and manual settings that set the percentage of torque distribution between the front and rear wheels
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control, which offers Standard, Off, and performance-oriented traction modes
  • Brembo® performance brake system
All three Subaru Motorsports teams utilize the WRX STI for stage rally (Subaru Rally Team USA), rallycross (Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team), and road racing (Subaru Road Racing Team). Read more about the teams here.

2014 BRZ STi, WRX, and More – Subaru Rumors, Spy Photos, and Facts

New 2014 Subaru rumors – what are your thoughts?

August 28th, 2012.
According to a recent publication by MotorTrend, there are several freshly upgraded Subaru vehicles on the way in 2013-2014.  Automotive News is also suggesting that Subaru may be focusing on enhanced performance on several successful vehicles in the next couple of years.

First up, the new 2014 Subaru WRX Spy Photos…

Varied Artist’s Concepts and Leaked Spy Photos:

Above you see two images of a mule of the next generation car for testing, and two artist renderings of the 2014 WRX. What do you think?

The 2014 WRX rumored to have a turbocharged 2.0 leter F-4 270 hp engine, with the BRZ’s six speed transmission and other BRZ technologies. The WRX STi will likely be around 305 hp with other rally performance enhancements. Both these cars are expected to hit our lot here at Rimrock Subaru in 2014.

Yep, the 2013 BRZ is a brand new car, but Subaru may already be doing some serious tinkering for its debut in 2014. It’s rumored by top industry sites like MotorTrend and MotorAuthority that the 2014 Subaru BRZ may (and some say likely will) have a performance enhanced STi edition, as well as a BRZ convertible edition, and possibly a new exterior look. The STi may have an upgraded boxer engine in the 250-280 hp range, with an even further lowered suspension, improved aerodynamics, and enhanced brakes.

2014 BRZ STi Artist’s Rendering:

The 2014 Impreza and Forester lineups may include hybrid versions, as well as body changes and enhanced aerodynamics. The Tribeca may be discontinued after next year, with an all-new successor (with three row seating) for 2014.

Changes are coming – and they’re looking good, right?
