Background

The Driver:

Ingólfur has been around Formula Off-Road for many years and like many others started in the service team. He worked with his brother, Kjartan ''Galdri'' Guðvarðarson, multi Icelandic Champion Haraldur Pétursson and many others. Ingó, as he is called, has helped many of his fellow contestants with the construction and improvements of cars that were competing in the old days and cars we see today. His career in Formula Off-Road began back in 2010.

The Car:

In the year of 2010 Ingó bought the Willys Hannes Bergsson owned and competed on it Street Legal that year and 20112012 began major changes so he could compete in Unlimited. In 2013 Ingó began to change the car yet again. It was rebuiled and improved but that particular car didn't last very long. In Skien, Norway the car was completely destroyed the fall of 2013. Guttinn Reborn as we know it today was built in 2014 from scratch.
