Icelandic hillclimb racers must hate gravity. There’s just no other way to explain why they attempt to race their tube chassis Jeeps and trucks up near vertical cliff faces, often with disastrous results. Big blocks, lots of nitrous, paddle tires, and miles of steel tubing make this a BangShift.com approved motorsport. The fact that disaster can strike anywhere from the hit of the throttle to within feet of the mountain top finishline, makes it riveting to watch.
The hillclimb moniker fails to tell the whole story on this group of crazies though. As you’ll see in the video below, they also skip these things across the water like flat stones and mud bog them through Icelandic swamps.
We’ve seen lots of videos of dirt hill climbs and even the serious stuff like the Big Eliminator at Gravelrama, but in comparison the Icelandic racers, it is weak sauce. One of the things that we really like about this video is the fact that screaming big blocks can be heard loud and clear.
