Background

The Driver;

Gestur began to to watch Formula Off Road as a little boy as this was his favorite sport. Later on he joined the service team for Helgi Schiöth after he built a car named Frissi Fríski. Now he drives a car that Helgi built for Einar Gunnlaugsson that belonged to Garðar Sigurðsson in 2012.

The Car;

Draumurinn is the old Drekinn that Einar Gunnlaugsson got built for himself. Today the car is pretty much the same besides a new engine with injection.
