2009 – 2018 | Henrik Birkegaard [….]
2018 – today | Aron Ingi Svansson [Storm]

The car (or the rollcage) came from the Danish Formula Offroad racer named Henrik Birkegaard who built the car in 2009. At the time he was 1340kg (2954 lbs) with his home-made paddle tire but without the mount of his bumpstops . 

Aron Ingi bought just the tubular frame in 2018 and shipped from Denmark over to Iceland and began some modifications. His goal was to keep the car as close to the 1000kg (2200 lbs) as he could. His first step was to build the axles underneath it and did he make it out of Patrol Y61 housing then slowly and steadily the car came together and Aron raced for the first time on his rebuilt on Egilsstaðir for the 2018 NEZ Cup.

2018 - Currently The Storm

Aron Ingi caught the Formula Offroad bug at a very young age and was a fan just a child. He had planned to compete long before he actually bought his first car. His brother, however, beat him to it and bought a car to which Aron was the “Team Chaptain”.  In 2013 – 2014 Aron bought the car that belonged to Ingólfur Guðvarðarson. His brother Kjartan Guðvarðarson crashed the car during the NEZ Cup in Skien, Norway in 2013 and therefore was deemed totalled and there is where the name “Zombie” came from. 

While racing on Zombie, Aron showed his talent and was often in the top 5 of each rounds. Now on a new and improved car we can only see Aron rise higher and higher on the scoreboard.
