When you’re record-setting Mark Higgins, sometimes it’s hard to find new places to race.
And that’s why Higgins and a heavily-modified 2015 Subaru WRX STI decided to do what no other car has done: drive down a bobsled track.
Before the team made the journey to the Swiss Alps, Prodrive modified the Isle of Man record-setting car, adding extra bracing and tires that are now banned from the World Rally Championship (WRC). Higgins is also the same person that set the Isle of Man record, and his resume includes being a stunt driver in various movies including Fast and Furious 6.
