Crazy News Isle of Man TT Challenge record set in a modded Subaru STI

Isle of Man TT Challenge record set in a modded Subaru STI

We’ve all heard of the Nürburgring, aka the Green Hell, and how scary it can be. It takes some serious skills and power to tame the massive track. There is another event called the

Isle of Man TT Challenge that is equally hair-raising. How many of you have heard of it?

Located on, where else, the Isle of Man in the British Isles, the TT Challenge is home to some of the craziest motorbike and automobile races ever. We recommend you look it up on YouTube and watch a few videos.

To help you kick start what will surely be a few hours of clenching and a raised heartrate, here’s a link to a race-prepped 550+ horsepower Subaru WRX STI crushing the one lap record. The final lap time of 17:35.139 is 14 seconds, or roughly 3 weeks at these speeds, faster than the old record.

The onboard view includes a g-meter, heart rate monitor, speedometer, and timer. Concentrate on the corner speeds – this is an incredible display of man and machine on the limit.
