Mark Higgins as Star Guest for The Midland Automobile Club’s Awards Dinner
British Rally Champion, Isle of Man TT hero and James Bond stuntman Mark Higgins will be the star guest at the Shelsley Walsh Awards dinner on January 6th 2018 at Stanbrook Abbey. The new for 2017 venue was a hit last year when Mr Mach 1, Land Speed Record holder Andy Green, made a guest appearance in front of 90 guests.
You’ve all seen Mark Higgins drive a car but on the majority of occasions you never knew it was him as he is a stunt driver in the Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre James Bond films, but his even faster driving has seen him smash the Isle of Man TT circuit record in a car when in 2016 he drove the Prodrive developed Subaru WRX STi around the 37.7 mile Mountain course in 17m 25.1 seconds, an average speed of an incredible 128.7mph.
Cutting his teeth rallying in the UK he has won the British Rally Championship three times in a Nissan, a Ford and a Subaru but his latest rally victories have taken place in 2017 in the growing Chinese Rally Championship while he finished third overall at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed too.
