Fri, 10 Jun 2011

Mark Higgins has smashed the record for the fastest time around the TT course in a car.

The multiple Britsh Rally Champion took the Subaru Impreza round at an average speed of 115.356mph.

The Manxman beat his time from Monday by around 20 seconds.

Until this week, the record had been set at 100mph.

That speed was recorded by Tony Pond in 1990.
