Icelandic Insanity

Lego Formula Off Road

The list of things to come out of Iceland that we’d like here in our home nation is quite a small one. Sigur Ros, Of Monsters and Men and – if we’re feeling a bit weird – Björk in the musical category, and Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir in probably everything else (Google her…). But one thing we’d definitely like is Iceland’s insane Formula Off-Road racing, in which 1600hp space-framed monsters blast up (and regularly crash down) Iceland’s huge volcanic cliffs in the slim hope of reaching the summit.

This excellent remote control Technic version has been constructed by Dalafik of Brickshelf. With all-wheel-drive, balloon tyres and a fantastic roll-cage it looks just the thing for a mini-Formula Off-Road event staged on TLCB’s garden rockery. You can see more on Brickshelf at the link above. Once you’ve Googled Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir of course.

    Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir is BEAUTIFUL, but after worked for more than 10 years in AFS exchange programs here in Venezuela, and meet more than 50 Icelandic students girls, I can certify that ALL of them are such a cute specimens! specially those BIG and ROUND eyes.
