2012 – today | Magnús Sigurðsson [CUBE]
The Cube was the aftermath of an experimental project of the team of Cube. In 2010-2011 they raced on a Suzuki Jimny in Street Legal class and made note of what was working in the hills and what needed improvement. Then when they had a near complete design made up they started building Cube from the scratch and to race in the Unlimited Class. Although Cube has some kinks some think are unconventional. Almost everything in the car is either upside-down or back-to-front, except perhaps the drivers themselves (most of the time).
The car is a unique car because it has a mid engine reversed in the car so the axles are set upside down. The balance of the car is almost 50/50 but once the driver sits in the car it shifts to 48/52, and because of this equal balance and low weight points the traction and handling of the car is extremely easy.
In 2012 – 2013 the engine caused some troubles couple of times which the team were quick to fix because when they returned to race in 2014 they have almost every race been in the top places fighting for the win.
The Cube is also unique for it’s engine, because most of the other cars have the big roaring V8s but Cube has the subtle yet powerful 2,4L Honda engine.
Magnús started racing in Formula Offroad back in 2010 where he began his career in the Street Legal class on a modified Suzuki Jimny.
Guðni began his career in a service team back in 2004, and then he became the “Team Captain” for Magnús Sigurðsson. He occasionally gets to compete on the Cube.
