Þórir’s interest in the sport began at a very young age. At the age of 17 he swapped the engine in a ’62 Willys to a Hurricane engine and today the car is for show in the Transportation Museum at Ystafell. Later on he acquired a ’65 Willys and put Chevy 350 with NOS under the hood. He watched Bubbi on his Turbo Bronco (Katla Turbo) in the 80’s and shortly after that he build “Jaxlinn” (1991). He raced from ’92 – ’96 but in those years he won few competitions and won also the “Best in Show” reward in Unlimited Class ’91 – ’95. Today he is rebuilding his old legacy to compete in the U.S this year. Perhaps he will surprise us and show the current driver how to drive like a champ in Icelandic soil.
Jaxilnn was build back in 1991 by Þórir and his team-mates. He competed in F.O from 1991 – 1996 and in his first year he won the 92′ Cup. His old vehicle was a revolution in the sport much like Árni Kópsson’s Heimasætan but now he will be one of a kind. Jaxlinn will be the only F.O. car with a Methanol Fuel Injection AND twin turbo! Guðbjörn Grímsson was the only Twin Turbo vehicle in the sport but now he got some competition.
