Haukur Vidar Einarsson competes in Formula Offroad over in Iceland. Simple enough…the man is borderline insane, has no self-preservation function and is hell-bent on making a paddle-tired, Jeep-ish creation do things that would make Sir Issac Newton take pause for a moment. That’s not a knock agains the man, that’s just speaking the truth…no matter what we are looking at, whenever we watch Formula Offroad action footage, we can’t help but be awed by what these drivers are capable of doing with these rigs. It’s not just for fun, but an actual championship that is tallied up over the year. Drivers have to be precise, have to be daring, and have to be ready to power down regardless of the outcome in order to maintain the lead in points.
Einarsson lined up for a hill with a lip and dropped the hammer, and on this occasion that might not have been the best call. His buggy ended up kicking off of the hill into a backflip that nearly went twice over. The best view might be inside watching as Einarsson crashes back to Earth and just drives off like nothing happened whatsoever. That’s why this guy is a professional driver…we might need a service check in our shorts before giving anyone the thumbs-up.
