CAR vs BOBSLED RUN

Top Gear (UK) - - INTAKE -

Not con­tent with bal­lis­tic laps of the Isle of Man, Mark Hig­gins has once again proved his brav­ery/in­san­ity with a barely held-to­gether dash down the bob run in St Moritz. To stand up to the pun­ish­ment, an STI un­der­went some se­ri­ous mod­if­ca­tions at the hands of Pro­drive, in­clud­ing an FIA-spec roll cage and seat, spe­cial har­nesses, new tyres ft­ted with 400 7mm-long tung­sten-car­bide studs, 50 per cent frmer springs and all the glass re­placed with race-ready plas­tic. Good thing too, judg­ing by the way he ric­o­chets his way down the ice chute. Plans for in­duc­tion into the Win­ter Olympics are cur­rently on hold.
