Hmm, i have some friends who were in the military for a while, but i don't think that it was custom to leave an exercize for a hobby
But then, i don't think P. C-P is a military man by profession?

I admit that I find it a bit weird, but as far as I know it is indeed not his profession.
He only has a week of this exercise left, then it is back to Stockholm and time for other things. Hint, hint

Carl Philip is a reserve officer at a military exercise. Normally at a big exercise like this there are a lot of reserve people with. At least here in Finland for every person at a military exercise is planned a task and one, also a reserve officer, can interrupt/leave the exercise only for an extremely good reason like if one gets ill or someone in one's family gets seriously ill.

I seriously hope he will stay at the military exercise and not go car racing. It would not be a good move.

Yes, that is understandable, but car racing? I still find it a bit weird, it seems trivial to (temporarily) leave for such a thing and I would think that he has time enough for it after the excercise is over. Even during the (further) planning of his wedding.

I do not understand actually why this suddenly popped up, the court information and his team information conflicts. I expected him to be fully involved with the exercise until this coming Thursday and today and tomorrow he is off for car racing? I almost thought "you *do* have time for that?", but that would not be a nice thought.

That is not what I meant, I just find the information conflicting.

Carl Philip was eight at the first test today in Solvalla. And fifteenth at the second test.

Carl Philip was 9th at the 1st qualifying at the Solvalla track. Because the grid has reserved grid order for the start at the first race, Carl Philip will start from the second place to the first race. Emma Kimiläinen was 10th at the qualifying and will be on pole at the first race. Thed Björk is on pole at the second race. Carl Philip's teacher, co-driver and friend Jan "Flash" Nilsson made come back after two years break from racing.
The eight fastest cars go to second qualifying. So Carl Philip starts from ninth place to the second race.

Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte had his best ever qualifying result with ninth, eight tenths of a second from Björk, in the Q1 session which means that he is going to start second in the first race thanks to the reversed grid.
”I am pleased with the result, especially as this is my first time ever on the track. The races will be interesting tomorrow, a great challenge,” said Bernadotte.

what a shame that he went car racing during this military exercise. It just adds up to his lazy image.

I do not necessarily "worry" about that, but I do wonder why he was given permission (is that the right word?) to go racing.

Not surprised at all, after all he is a rich prince who can do anything he wants to do......he maybe fooling himself but I seriously doubt if he is fooling the people. An accident of birth gave him what he has and he should be very grateful and appreciative and show that he is committed to the people and do what is expected of a hard working man in his position.

Lousy start to the race for Carl Philip. He started from the second place and after the first lap he was 8th and now he is 12th. He had a little collision but can continue. And he got a drive through -penalty. He was slow. But he was lucky since some faster drivers had to break up, he came 10th.

The Prince has visited the Rio +20 Sustainability Forum. He has opened a World Bioenergy Forum in an aim to reduce the carbon footprint on the world's resources. The Prince has attended summits on sustainable energies and designs in South Africa.

All very honourable and great. The credibility of his efforts however is completely destroyed by choosing a hobby which requires the swallowing of unbelievable amounts of petrol. Just for "fun". For "sports". I am okay with that but it is a bit wobbly to patronize attempts for a more sustainable world and then to do the opposite yourself.

My two cents.

I agree. And Carl Philip is also one of the IUCN's Patrons of Nature.

Carl Philip came 10th also at the second race, because Emma Kimiläinen's car broke up at the last lap.

OK, I officially admit that I'm very dissapointed of CP right now. He should have stayed at the military excercies until the end. After all, the court made a big boohoo about him being a part of this excercies and then he cut's it short for car racing? Not a very smart move of him.

I agree, I am not happy with this move either. He needs to spend time with Sofia again. Preferably in public
