Video: Mattias Wulcan Smashes UK Pro Mod Record With A 5.53!

Mattias Wulcan has raced Pro Modified all over the world, from the FIA European Championship series to the PDRA here in the United States. In his global racing quest, Wulcan has always been a player and his Blackbird Camaro has piled up the wins. Wulcan proved once again this past weekend at Santa Pod Raceway that he’s still one of the best when he reset the European Pro Mod record with a stout 5.53 at 262 mph.

Wulcan has long been a force in the European Pro Mod racing scene, even earning an FIA European championship in 2014. In his first trip to America to race in the ADRL Wulcan suffered a devastating crash that required a rebuild of his racecar. On his second trip to the states, Wulcan nearly won the PDRA Pro Extreme title in 2017, battling it out with Mike Recchia all the way to the series finale.

This weekend’s Doorslammers event at Santa Pod Raceway was billed as a true all-out Pro Mod race with no rules except for safety specifications. With big prize money on the line Wulcan pulled out all the stops and his performance showed it when racing began. On each pass, Wulcan consistently got quicker, even clicking the car off early as he worked on the quarter-mile tune-up in his Camaro.

Check out this footage from Mk1Kieran that shows all of Wulcan’s runs during the event. On the brutal 5.53-second pass, Wulcan’s 60-foot time was a blistering .898, with a 3.67-second eighth-mile time. With this kind of performance, it’s possible that Wulcan could dip into the rare-air of the 5.40s very soon.
