Driving a rally-prepped Subaru WRX STi, David Higgins shaved 30 seconds off the top time for the annual Mt. Washington Hill Climb on Sunday, reconnoitering the 7.6 mile circuit in 6 minutes, 11.54 seconds. Also in competition: Mike Ryan's hillclimbing, Gulf-liveried Frieghtliner, which you can briefly experience below.
For one hundred years people have attempted to climb to the peak of Mt. Washington faster than anyone else. Travis Pastrana beat the record by 20 seconds in a Subaru WRX STI. On his first try. Watch his Subie dance.
