Carl Philip is back behind the wheel on Friday and Saturday after missing the Solvalla race because of Madeleine's wedding. He likes the Gothenburg circuit.
"I have many good memories from Gothenburg, especially the Swedish GT win last year. STCC is of course completely different and I am humble ahead of my task to race with these cars here. I am looking forward to an exciting weekend at Volvo's and Polestar's home circuit".

Carl Philip got points at both races in STCC in Falkenberg today. At the first race he was 7th (his best result in STCC) and in the second 10th.
- I'm very happy, I have gradually increased the tempo and had two good races without any major mistakes. This was one of my best race weekends ever, said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip races at STCC in Östersund, today are the tests and tomorrow qualifications and race.
"It has actually gone better than I expected. But as tough as the STCC field is, I am not taking anything for granted ahead of the second half. A new circuit means an even bigger challenge and for my part it is mainly about continuing to learn and build experience for the coming seasons," said Prince Carl Philip.

Not a very good qualifying for Carl Philip, he was 13th.

At the race Carl Philip was 11th. He had a spin and lost a lot of time. His teammates from Polestar Racing took places from 1 to 4.
http://www.stcc.se/stcc-xmlreader.ph...t+1&1376143437

Carl Philip said that the race did not turn out as he had hoped. His race times were well okay. He made some blunders and had some bad luck, but sometimes you have that too. He was pleasantly surprised at this race track, which was made to an airport. The race seems to be appreciated, since there was so much people watching. Carl-Philip has three races remaining. The first is in Karlskoga, which he sees like his home track and he hopes it goes better than today.

Carl Philip delivered yesterday in Lidköping a trophy he has founded for young karting talents - Prins Carl Philips Racing Pokal (Prince Carl Philip's Racing Trophy).
Through this prize I want to help the development of young kartingtalents and I look forward to follow this year's winners in the future, says Prince Carl Philip. There were exciting competitions and I am impressed by the arrangement Lidköpings Karting Club offered. It was just as good as I had hoped for and it feels very good that in this way to give something back to motor sport.

On the second race he had to retire after being involved in an incident with three other cars on the first lap.
- I am not satisfied with the race weekend. The first race was quite okay, but the second contest ended on the very first lap. There are these weekends in racing sometimes and I'm already focused on the next race, said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip is racing in STCC today and tomorrow at the Tierp Arena. Today are the test sessions and tomorrow the qualification and race.
He chases top ten finish in this weekend's race after having had three not so good competitions.
- The last three races have been a mixture of mistakes and technical hassles. Tierp Arena is an intense and challenging course, we are continuing to work with my program and I hope to be able to get into the top ten again, says Prince Carl Philip.
http://www.polestar.se/sv-se/2013/sm...a-tierp-arena/

Carl Philip was 13th at both training sessions.

Carl Philip was 10th in the race in Tierp, and got one point.
STCC - Resultat

Carl Philip has nine points total and he is 13th in the class before the last race.
STCC

The competition was fierce with a lot of incidents. But I set faster lap time in the race compared to qualifying, so I continue to take steps forward and learn. That is what is important and to take on new credit, I am naturally happy, I'm happy with helgem says Prince Carl Philip.
Carl Philip's teammate Theo Björk secured that STCC championship today, even though there is one weekend left at the serie.

Carl Philip participates today and tomorrow at the STCC-final at the Mantorp Park. Today are the tests, tomorrow the qualification and two races.
Carl Philip Bernadotte has got good memories as well from Mantorp Park from his previous championship.
"The last race at Tierp was eventful, but overall positive. It is going to be great fun to race at a big circuit like Mantorp Park. I have many good memories from here and I look forward to take on this weekend's challenges".

Hadn't visited this thread before and it's quite an interesting read as it shows (imo) the growing up of P.Carl Philip from a young, somewhat brattish, racer to actually putting in the hard work of starting in a lot of trainings and races and actually winning some to, lately, sort of lagging behind the others a bit (10nd and 12th doesn't sound so bad, but in reality it usually last or second to last from the ones finishing), which i don't think is a technical problem because the other cars of the team do really well....

Is he pursuing this as a career? Or just something to do in the 'boyish' years and sort of wrapping things up and moving on?
(also i get a bit of similar vibe as Charlotte Casiraghi and her equestrian career, which probably is not a nice thing to say...)

Carl Philip was 10th at today's second race, which was also the last of the season. So he got one point.
http://www.stcc.se/stcc-xmlreader.ph...t+2&1379774851

At the final standings he was 13th at STCC with ten points. Carl Philip's teammate Theo Björk won the championship. The STCC manufacturers' title went for Volvo. Volvo Polestar Racing secured ten out of 12 victories and 24 out of 36 podium finishes.
