Jan ”Flash” Nilsson is going to take part in the Celebrity Race of Stena Match Cup Sweden at Marstrand, a sail race taking place on friday the 8th of July. The double STCC champion is going to face opposition from a lot of Swedish celebrities.

”This is going to be my first sail race ever and I suspect that Ravelli [Swedish goal keeper] is going to blow on the sail him self in order to beat me. It is going to be really fun to meet Anja Person [alpine skier] who is a great role model for me. I have to bring my autograph book,” said ”Flash” with a smile.

”Flash” is not the sole Flash Engineering driver of the sail race as Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia driver Matte Karlsson also is going to take part.

”Sailing is not my usual sport, but it is going to be nice to try something new and meet some other rookie sailers. There are a lot of strong athletes in the race, so it is going to be a real challenge,” said Karlsson.
