Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Higgins sets a new world record going up Mt. Washington.

Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Higgins has just set a new record for the Mt. Washington Hill Climb. The record was set on June 26, 2011 on the 7.6 mile uphill run to the tallest peak in the Northeast United States. The record was set with a time of just 6:11.54. Before the run, Higgins claimed he had a goal of beating the unofficial record set by Travis Pastrana last year. Not only did he accomplish this by nine seconds, he also beat the one set by Frank Sprongl in 1998.

Higgins was driving a Subaru WRX STI that was equipped with BFGoodrich RC01 rally tires. After setting the record, however, Higgins believes he can go even faster with a new sub-six-minute goal. And now Subaru has finally released the official video of the record breaking event. See for yourself how dangerous the roads are and how fast conditions can change.
