    This is mesmerizing. Running the Isle of Man TT course at up to 175mph right next to stone walls, trees, houses, and, of course, the spectators.

    In between all the annual motorcycle races, the organizers allow a demonstration run for a car. The driver is Mark Higgins and the car is a Subaru WRX STI with 550hp. Enormous. balls. of. titanium.

    The kinks that he can drive at over 150mph in that car... amazing. Anyone who has driven kinks on the track at over 100mph can appreciate just how ballsy that is.
