I watched the first race from SVT. One car drove off from the track and two cars collided so Carl Philip got to 7th place, when he collided with another car. He span. The collision was his fault and he got 30 seconds time penalty for unfair driving and finished as 10th.
My country woman Emma Kimiläinen was the first woman to start on pole and she came 2nd at the race. The first podium position for her. Good for her.

I can imagine he's not please, 11th doesn't sound bad, but it's from 13 cars in total, so actually third from behind... His teammates do a lot better, so the car can't be completely bad, let's hope he'll make top 5 or something at some point...

Carl Philip will race in STCC in Knutstorp on Friday and Saturday, tests and qualifying on Friday and two races on Saturday.

After a tough start to the season, Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte has scored points in the past three races and is chasing more points at Knutstorp.
”I had a tough season start at Knutstorp in May, I am aiming to turn that around this weekend and continue to score points for the championship,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had technical problems with the gearbox and the mechanics were forced to work hard to get the car ready between testing and qualifying. With just seconds left ahead of the start of the qualifying session, Prince Carl Philip was able to join the track and is going to start 12th for both races.
”The team made an amazing effort to get me out in time, a big thanks to them. But I am not pleased with my position in the qualifying session, but we lost a lot of important time due to the technical issues and I made a step in the right direction in terms of lap times from testing to qualifying,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip's first race in STCC just started, live:
Motor: STCC, Ring Knutstorp | SVT Play

The other race at 15.10 swedish time.

Carl Philip was seventh at the first race. He drove as 12th or 13th but then came a big crash, many cars broke off the race and Carl Philip was 5th after the safety car left the track open. Two cars went past him and he was 7th.

Carl Philip drove in 2012 together with Jan "Flash" Nilsson, they drove a serie where there were two drivers in a team. And he won some invitation race.

Today Carl Philip started from 12th place to his second race, but there was only 10 cars at the start.
The king was already yesterday in Knutstorp and now SVT showed him watching the race start.
http://imageupper.com/i/?S0300010010...08795762227230

Carl Philip was sixth at the second race, he was perhaps a little lucky because of the misfortune of other drivers.

6th doesn't sound bad, but how many drivers finished the race? If it was 6 then it's still not very good..

You can find out more about his racing team here: Polestar Racing - Volvo Cars official Motorsport Partner

He is currently last of 13 in points for the year. You accumulate points by your position of finish in each race of the year.

The last two years he has driven the Volvo S60 in STCC class (touring cars). In previous years, while driving a BMW - he had some decent results - but no podium finishes in two years.

At least in the US, this class of racing is a combination of sponsored drivers working their way up in class and people who have enough money to fund their own ride (or to find sponsors to fund their own ride). In general they are nice people to be around, living a dream that many of them have. It's a fun sport to follow!

In the first race Carl Philip's lap time was clearly the slowest of those who were able to finish.
Resultat | STCC
Also in the second race his lap time was the slowest of those who completed the race.
Resultat | STCC

He is normally much slower than the other drivers who race for Volvo Polestar Racing with the same car Volvo S60. He is racing against some very experienced STCC-drivers, there are at least three drivers, who have over 100 races in STCC.
But there are also drivers to whom this is the first season in STCC, like finnish young woman Emma Kimiläinen, who already has got one podium place this year.

According to the court website Carl Philip is at the military exercise on the Baltic Sea on Friday and Saturday, but according to his STCC team Volvo Polestar's press release he is racing in Solvalla:
Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had his best ever STCC race weekend at Knutstorp with sixth and seventh. A tough challenge awaits him this weekend as he has not raced at Solvalla before.
”I have only driven one test session at Solvalla previously, so the challenge is great. But I am strengthened by the results from Knutstorp and my goal is to continue to score points,” said Prince Carl Philip.

That is how I read it too and as far as I know the court web site calendar never mentions his motor racing since it is one of his hobbies.
