WRX STI Sets Isle of Man Record

Came across this great video released by Subaru, where rally driver Mark Higgins sets a new record at the Isle of Man TT Mountain Course, and allegedly does it in a stock 2011 Subaru WRX STI, with some suspension modifications. That's some cool news for Subaru fans, but I am more about the video and precisely the driving of Mark Higgins, or you can say the precise driving of Higgins. I am puzzled how he achieves an average speed of 115 mph on a track that goes throught the most narrows streets you will see in a small town. There is also a moment where he loses control of the car going down the hill at 150 mph and manages to straighten it back out, that moment is replayed and explained in details by Mark at the end of the video.
