The Driver:

I was on a service team back in 1990 and then again this summer. We had this great idea, and I thought why not, you only live once. Doing this with my son, Driver Profile: Gunnar Örn Jónsson.

The Car:

We can trace the steps of “The Doctor” back to Eyjólfur Skúlason, designer, builder, first owner. He competed on it for some years until Þór Þormar Pálsson bought it from him in 2014 and it took the name “Spiderman” a.k.a “Mjölnir”. Þór Þormar had great success on it throughout competitions all over. In 2016 Þór Þormar shipped his vehicle across the ocean to participate in the First F.O. race in the U.S, making history. Now Birgir and his team; “Be Sick Racing” have the car and it is safe to say that we can expect great things from him. They bought the chassis and roll cage from Þór Þormar and have they been putting it together to be able to race in the first round in the Icelandic Championship on Hella. The look will be similar to the old “Mjölnir” look but in different colours.
