So a Stunt Driver Brings His Subaru to an Olympic Bobsled Track …
Or, how to single-handedly keep your chiropractor in business
After feeling the rhythm and the rhyme, stunt driver Mark Higgins decided it was bobsled time.
The 45-year-old driver — who has done stunt work for the latest Bond movies and the Fast & Furious series — took a modified Subaru WRX STI to the top of the St. Moritz-Celerina Olympic Bobrun in Switzerland, the naturally refrigerated track that hosted the Games in 1928 and 1948.
He then proceeded to bomb down the mile-long track like a maniac, rounding corners like a banshee, slamming into walls and almost losing control before actually making it in one piece.
While Higgins didn’t end up with a gold medal for completing the Olympic run, he did leave the track with a piece of silver trim that had been ripped from the car — and a very sore neck.
Don’t act like you’re not impressed.
