Joakim Tärnström from STCC said to Svensk Damtidning that they finalized the calendar a few days before they got to know that Madeleine is getting married on 8th June. There are eight racing weekends and if he misses one, he will miss having points. We who have followed him since he started in 2008 think he is a very talented driver, says Tärnström.

Carl Philip went off the road on Saturday at the Rally of Sweden.
- He was a bit far out of the way and got a bit panicked. He braked hard, and then went off the road, said spectator Robert Stormyrbakken.
Salvation came when the audience helped to push up the car on the road again. Of course, he sat in the car during the rescue.
Thanks to all snow the car survived without damage.
Expressen has unsuccessfully sought the Royal Court's information officer Bertil Ternert for comment.

Why Ternert would have to comment this? Doesn't Expressen have an own sports reporter at the WRC Rally of Sweden who could have asked Carl Philip's comments?

He's starting to annoy me. He needs to get an actual job now.

Agreed!!! I feel like he can do less motor racing and add more time to public appearances and charitable causes! Motor racing is a hobby fir a prince... Or at least it should be! His job is and should be to represent his family and people.... I'm not saying that he needs to have anywhere near the amount of public engagements that Victoria or the King and Queen have, but he needs to take up more and take some of the load from them or at least add to the public exposure of the family. Motor racing does and should not be an acceptable public appearance.

Just saying!

Carl Philip's STCC team Polestar had their season launch on Thursday in Gothenburg. CP is of course excited and says that he has respect to drive this car and respect on the other riders, who are very experienced.
Prince Carl Philip is known to be interested in design. He thinks that the car is neat, he has designed the paint and varnishing.
- I and my colleague (Oscar Kylberg) were asked and we thought it would be great fun. The connection between Volvo and Sweden was there ready. But also my own connection to Sweden. We wanted to play with the blue and yellow colors and keep the lines so sober and classy as possible.
Just three logos on the car - two of them are charities, the other of them is Childhood where his mother Queen Silvia and sister Madeleine are involved.

I was expecting something far more "cooler" given the CP love of design and his education as well as his experience. I didn't expect him to simply paint the Swedish flag on the top of the car and color the bumper as well as other small parts yellow to stand out on the all blue car.

When he said that he wanted to play around with the colors of Sweden, I was expecting something fun and exciting... A twist if you will. This design/paint job does nothing that says an artist has done it other than word of mouth (ie- the prince telling people or magazines announcing his design/paint job).

I'm not trying to be rude here in any way -I simply was excited to see something fun in terms of his personally designed car only to find it so simple that almost anyone can do something like it.

My most favorite area would have to be the swedish flag on the hood of the car!

I agree with you. It's a nicely painted car but that's is all to it; just a nicely painted car. Nothing special, anyone can come up with an idea like that, it really does not require lot of skills or thinking. I, too, was hoping for something way more exciting.

Carl Philip can't race at STCC in Solvalla on 8th June because of Madeleine's wedding.
Bertil Ternert from the court says: It is a clear priority order, that Carl Philip will attend at the wedding. The timetables are too tight, there is nothing strange in this.
The spokesperson of STCC, Joakin Tärnström, told to Expressen that they had tried to change the schedule of the day because of Carl Philip, but it couldn't be done because of the TV-coverage of the races in Solvalla.
Carl Philip will race at 4th May. Ternert says that the prince is waiting it very eagerly.

I actually really like the design of the car. It's very easy for that kind of thing to veer into terribly tacky territory. (Bet you can't say that three times fast.)

Carl Philip was 13th overall at the three day tests. From the first test day to the last, he improved his best lap time by one second.
- I have many impressions from test days. We have taken some important steps forward, but there is still much to do. The car is really fun to drive and I'm very happy with the team, said Prince Carl Philip.

At the first race he was 13th, but had 8th fastest laptime during the race. He said: It has been a great debut weekend for me in STCC. Unfortunately, I made some unnecessary mistakes, but it is really positive that I got a proof that momentum is there for the top ten and I'm very happy. At the second race he was 14th.
