Subaru's David Higgins Makes Record Mt. Washington Run: Video

Follow Nelson

Earlier this summer, Subaru Rally Team USA's David Higgins set a new record time for the ascent up Mt. Washington's hillclimb. Today, we have the official video.

The latest record run just serves to build Subaru's recent dominance of the Mt. Washington hillclimb: last year Travis Pastrana re-set the record, beating out a 12-year-old record by Frank Sprongl by about 21 seconds, though that run was unofficial.

Higgins' run, however, was official, and knocks a full 30 seconds off the record, setting a new time of 6:11.54, a truly manic pace judging by the video below--made all the more impressive by the fog obscuring the road and the sheer drops alike, but a suitable setting for an event billed as the Climb to the Clouds.
