Background

The Driver;

His father, Árni Steindór Sveinsson, was in the service team for the multi-champion Haraldur Pétursson so naturally he began to develop interest for the spot. He started competing himself in 2013 and has he won the Icelandic Championship fromt 2013-2015

The Car;

Haraldur Pétursson build the car in 2000and competed on it until 2004-05 with great success. The car was unused for few years or since Haraldur stopped racing and until Jón Örn Ingileifsson bought it back in 2007

In 2013 Snorri purchased the car without any engine only a month from the first race. He and his team  tore it apart, painted and build a new body and the whole thing got scrutinized. Since then they have spent a lot of money for spare parts and to have all new part in the car itself. Since Snorri bought the car he has upgraded the engine and the brake system.
