Q & A with Mattias Nilsson

Mattias Nilsson, 44 years old from Höllviken, in Sweden. Mattias is the owner and driver of the V8 Hemi powered Light Modified Tractor called ,,XL´´. Before he made with his Team the switch to the Light Mod division, the Swedish Team drove many years in the TWD class. What are you doing in your normal life?
Mattias Nilsson: In my normal life, I have been a self-employed farmer and truck driver for 20 years. And now I have just been employed by a large company as a constructor and spider in the network. As regards the structure and equipment of Trucks and Trailers. From baying, building to selling them. What do you like to do in your free time, except Tractor Pulling?
Mattias Nilsson: At my and Family's leisure time. We would like to go to USA in the winter and in summer we would like to go out with the boat. What do you like about Tractor Pulling?
Mattias Nilsson: I like everything about building, constructing and improving. What was your first Tractor Pulling event?
Mattias Nilsson: 1982 in Ystad, Sweden. It was a show run by a number of Dutch Teams. What is your favourite Event / Pulling track?
Mattias Nilsson: Bernay, France. When and where do you have driven a Pulling Tractor for the first time?
Mattias Nilsson: 1988 in St. Olof, Sweden. What was your biggest success?
Mattias Nilsson: Building of our current Light Mod Tractor. Which Pulling classes do you like too?
Mattias Nilsson: TWD of course. What was your biggest disappointment?
Mattias Nilsson: 2017 EC Stroe, in the Netherlands. I was disqualified, because I crossed the white line. Which things must be changed in the future of the Tractor Pulling sport?
Mattias Nilsson: Hard question, but I could imagine more divisions. Like a "A" and "B" division. What are your plans for the future in Tractor Pulling?
Mattias Nilsson: Better results in the Euro Cup series. What was for you the most important moment in the sport?
Mattias Nilsson: The first time as we were invited to the European Superpull in Ahoy (NL). What was your favourite Pulling Tractor project in the workshop during a winter?
Mattias Nilsson: The building of the new XL Light Mod. Something you want to say?  
Mattias Nilsson: I want to thank my Team. Without them I had not been where we are today. Thank you for your time and good luck for the future!
