Home Town/Country: Borlänge, Sweden
Team: Green Goblin http://www.meracing.com
Best ET: 6.248 seconds
Best Terminal Speed: 227.22mph
Sweden

The fabled Green Goblin Ford has long been one of the most potent Pro Mods on the European scene. A new chassis was built during the off-season to improve the car’s handling and produce smooth, straight runs of championship-challenging quality.

Mats came close to his personal best at May’s rained-off Main Event (MSA Rnd. 2), clocking 6.267sec. In July’s FIA races in Scandinavia, he reached the second round at Alastaro, Finland, before rain again brought a halt, and clocked another 6.267 en route to a semi-final finish at Mantorp Park, Sweden. A 6.262, at a career-best speed of 227.22mph, was sufficient to qualify him 5th at Santa Pod’s FIA European Finals, where he reached the 2nd round.
