Video: David Higgins’ record-breaking Mt. Washington hill climb

A high-definition video of David Higgins breaking the record at the Mt. Washington hill climb earlier this year has just been posted up onto YouTube. Higgins broke the record in a Subaru Impreza WRX from the Subaru Rally Team USA.

The impressive run beats Travis Pastrana’s unofficial record run (6:20.47) from last year, with an official time of 6:11.54. There’s fog, cliff edges and sheer speed, all key ingredients for an intriguing and highly entertaining performance car video.
