This is the 1/4 track here in Iceland. The video is not the greatest one but shows few of the regular cars. Last summer time boards were fitted so you could see the time. But untill then times were anounced over the speakers(in Icelandic) .

There are some really fast Icelandic cars . Best example is the Team Ice Impreza built by Roger Clark. Does 9sec runs and is street legal. Hopefully the comming summer we will have better videos!!!*wave*

It does look like that yes! I am not sure if it is or not! I think if it is its no where near as bad as it looks on the video!

Wow I had this assumption in my head that this vid was going to be mainly pegout, citroen, vw... mostly european cars. Im surprised at how many North American cars are out there!!

Well that is very true! The story is that long time ago the Vikings decided to change the name with Greenland to confuse potential attackers from comming here.

Cost for importing is almost the same here whether its from EU or US.
Most sold car here though is Land Cruiser.
We do have allot of fast cars here. Here is an old clip of a Subaru owned by Icelanders built by Roger Clark:

Video is in UK and the car now looks different and has more power (same coulour scene like the RGM subaru)
Here is their site and a pic of the new version:
