Carl Philip was 9th in day one and 8th in day two at the first tests for this year's STCC serie in Knutstorp. His teammates from Volvo Polestar Racing, Fredrik Ekblom and Thed Björk were in the very top of the tests.
”I am glad to be back behind the wheel again with the team. We have had two productive test days and I am looking forward to the premiere,” said Carl Philip.

One of Carl Philip's rivals in STCC this year is a young woman from Finland, Emma Kimiläinen. She was faster than Carl Philip in both test days.

The 2014 STCC starts this weekend in Knutstorp with tests and qualifying on Friday and two races on Saturday.
Carl Philip hopes to take a step forward in terms of speed and consistency.
”I have many good memories from last year, the season start at Knutstorp was very special for me to race on the top level and meet the very best racing drivers in Sweden. A couple of races after that and I scored my so far best result with seventh at Falkenberg, a memory I hold dearly. For this year I am aiming to continue to build experience and take a step forward in terms of result with more consistent top ten finishes,” said Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte.

Carl Philip was 11th at the first test in STCC's first race in Knutstorp
http://www.stcc.se/wp-content/upload...est-1-STCC.pdf
And 12th at the second test
http://www.stcc.se/wp-content/upload...est-2-STCC.pdf

He was 11th at the qualifying
http://www.stcc.se/wp-content/upload...fying-Q1-2.pdf
His teammate Fredrik Ekblom starts from the pole tomorrow.

https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/...12211730_o.jpg

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte was eleventh fastest in the first qualifying session, just one place from tenth position which would have meant pole position in the first race. As he was outside the top ten in Q1, he is going to start eleventh in both races as only the top ten drivers are reversed for the first race and the top eight drivers of Q1 takes part in Q2 which decides the grid for the second race.
”I am not pleased so far, there is more to give and I hope to improve my results during the weekend,” said Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte.

Carl Philip will race in Gothenburg on Friday and Saturday.
On Friday he has the tests and qualifications and has to take a plane to be in Stockholm in the evening at the national day celebration.
On Saturday are two races.

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had an eventful season start which unfortunately ended in two retired races despite a competitive pace. For this weekend the 35-year-old is aiming for points.
”Gothenburg is a challenging track, but I like it and I’ve had many fun races there in the past. I am aiming to score points this weekend,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip crashed again in Gothenburg. At the first qualification he got out of the track and his car was damaged. He was 11th at the quali. He was so disappointed that he didn't want to speak with the press.

The qualifying session of Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte ended in the barriers. He had set the eleventh fastest time before the incident and showed promising form in testing which was held in dry conditions where he was seventh fastest and nine tenths from the fastest time.
”I locked my brakes and aquaplanned after that. It was unfortunate, especially as things went really well in testing. We will bounce back tomorrow,” said Bernadotte.

That's too bad, he was really looking forward to race and then having to retire with a technical problem is a shame...

Maybe he would have crashed out anyway...

The retirement of Bernadotte was caused due to a broken tie rod.

Carl Philip was 9th at the second race and got two points. This came partly because two drivers couldn't start to the second race because their cars weren't ready on time after the crashes at the first race.
https://twitter.com/PolestarRace/sta...82904990621696

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had to retire from the first race as well due to technical problems while he finished ninth in the second race from eleventh on the grid to score his first points of 2014. ”It has been an eventful weekend and I am glad to have ended it on a positive note by scoring my first points this year,” said Bernadotte.

Carl Philip will be racing on STCC in Falkenberg on Friday and Saturday. The tests and qualifying on Friday and two races on Saturday.
Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte is also on the hunt for revenge this weekend after a tough start to the season. The 35-year-old took his so far best STCC finish in Falkenberg last year with seventh position.
”I am not pleased with the start of this season. The speed is there but we’ve had a lot of bad luck. I like Falkenberg and my goal is a similar result as last year here,” said Bernadotte.

Carl Philip was 11th at the first test in Falkenberg.

And 10th at the second.

He had some problems with his car at the other test. Photos, Carl Philip has gone back to using glasses, he has had them only in few photos when he was younger.

At the first qualifying Carl Philip was 11th and didn't get to the second qualifying, which is for the eight fastest cars.

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte is going to start eleventh in both of the races, a position he was not pleased with.
”I am not pleased, we lack some speed in order to challenge for the top ten where my goal is. But we’ll be back for tomorrow,” said Bernadotte.
