    Watch this Subaru WRX STI go on an Epic Bobsled Run



    When youíre record-setting Mark Higgins, sometimes itís hard to find new places to race.

    And thatís 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.

    But a bobsled track is unfamiliar territory, especially for a car. Itís not a flawless run, and we canít imagine any vehicle that could do it perfectly, but is it a joy to watch.

    Thank you AutoGuide. That is one fun video, and for those who have not seen the above referred Isle of Mann run, it is truly exciting to watch at the link:
