Nice video. I got to meet David Higgins at the STPR rally event. He was quite soft spoken and I don't think he expected anyone to ask him for his autograph. I got his and Dave Mirra's autograph though. I saw him race those two days and I can without a doubt say that the man is skilled. The video above just confirms my belief. He saved that car and that took some insane skill.
I forgot all about Isle of Man, until I talked to one of the Subaru Rally Team USA mechanics at STPR. I got to chew his ear off for a while on the opening day. A really nice guy and he didn't mind me talking about rally and the VT car specs. Hell, he went into great detail about the VT 9.5 spec car that Mirra was driving and the VT 10 spec car Higgins was using. Even that the rallycross cars are completely different from those.
Speaking of that. Catch the last stage of Rally America's Rally Cross Championship on espn tomorrow night. 6/25/2011 at 9 pm (EST).
Spoiler: Higgins is driving Subaru's sole entry, because Subaru's rally cross team is still fixing Mirra's car from the last event. Plus, its a warm up for Higgins. That way he doesn't go into the X games never have entered a Rally Cross.
