Mark Higgins and the 2016 Subaru WRX STI Time Attack car have been getting acquainted. Higgins posted new pictures on his Facebook page and Subaru of America posted these new pictures of the Time Attack car on their timeline too. Higgins is already testing the purpose-built STI in the UK.
Higgins put this on his FB page, “This is the actual car in full livery for TT next week.” He’s been testing the new STI Time Attack somewhere in the UK, and posted a short video of the car with the sound with the restricted exhaust. It will be coming off when he gets to the Isle of Man. Higgins says, “It was good to get a few runs to chuck her about a little, nice and smooth next week.”

Higgins says, “I would like to thank everyone involved ,especially Subaru USA, Prodrive and all the team involved in the build of the car, automotive events and Dunlop, also great to have Dirtfish and A Jartec on board and Alpine stars. All the hard work is now done so can't wait to get back on the Isle of Man next week.”
