Several years ago Andrew Blackwood, a Formula Offroad enthusiast first met Gestur Ingolfsson, owner of the Unlimited class car “Draumurinn”. Andrew has since been helping Gestur and the rest of “Team Dream” at races in the USA and Iceland. Now he has registered to drive Draumurinn in the Icelandic Formula Offroad Championship in Akraness July 21 and 22. This is the first time an American driver has registered for the race.
The truck was designed and built in 1997 by Helgi Schiöth for Einar Gunnlaugsson and raced under the name Drekinn (The Dragon). After many years it was sold to Garðar Sigurðsson and continued racing. In 2011 it became available and Gestur J Ingolfsson bought the truck and renamed it Draumurinn (The Dream), as this had been Gestur’s dream to own a truck and race formula offroad. He began to assemble the team and entered competition in May 2012.
