This in itself is not the issue, lots of young boys and girls get into racing, starting with karting (there's a 17 year old starting in Formula1 now, you can't have reached that level at that age if you don't start young; former F1 driver Michael Schumacher already won international karting races at age 15), but i can imagine it's an awesome experience for a kid to be in a real racecar on a real circuit.
However, the driver driving the kid around should ofcourse be a especially careful, it's just a lap across the circuit, not a race when you have a passenger in the car

I am totally inexperienced nor have much knowledge about car racing and I have always been under the impression it was for adults. I do know that some in my family, cousins used to go to something called *go Karts* (hope I got that right) when they were teenagers and it never seemed dangerous. This Formula 1 I know nothing about as I don't follow car racing and it doesn't interest me, so I think when a 14 is in a car racing around a racetrack with someone who has experience and they crash........goodness gracious he should be more careful and he was darn lucky nothing happened to that child. I don't care who was racing, that doesn't matter to me, it's the idea that someone with experience crashed a car with a 14 year old boy in it that bothers me..........at 14 your still a kid, not an adult and teenagers are know to not make wise or careful decisions as at that age they seem to know it all as I did at that age and upon growing up realize what an idiot I was. Maybe now that CPC is getting married he could direct his energies into something less dangerous as he might have a family someday and given his record he is not very good at this racing.

In the U.S recently a 14 year old girl was killed driving a race car. Her parents supported her love of racing. She was killed in her first race. I am sorry but no at 14 there are safer hobbies , when you are 18 can do as you please but not at 14.

I'm sure it's a cultural difference, but in large parts of the US it's completely normal for children to use guns and even child-versions of weapons are given as birthday-presents; this to me (little ol' european person) is much more incomprehensible than 14 year olds driving go-karts

Guns don't kill people and Cars don't kill people.
It's when people get involved with guns and cars that deaths occur.

There's still a big difference. Guns are made for killing and cars are made for driving.

Yep, and that's why i personally don't have a problem with teenagers driving go-karts, and do with a guns (in my case: guns period, but that's just m.o.)

Anyway, i hope that P.C-P soon manages to get some positive news with his racing hobby, because there wasn't much of that this year...

The 14 year old wasn't driving a go cart it was an actual race care , she was doing what she wanted to do. I don't think children should be allowed to use guns either it is not necessary.

The Gold Coast 600 race in V8 Supercars was from Friday to today, so if he doesn't stay for a holiday, I think he should soon return to Sweden. He has next work event at his calendar on 12th November.

According to the updated STCC calendar, Carl Philip doesn't have time for a long honeymoon after the wedding, if he wants to race at the first ever evening race of STCC, in Mantorp Park on 25th June.

Volvo Polestar Racing is going to field the most merited driver line-up ever for the 2015 Scandinavian Touring Car Championship with drivers Thed Björk, Fredrik Ekblom and Prince Carl Philip.
”We are proud to confirm the strongest ever driver STCC line-up and we have a clear goal set for the 2015 season: to become the first ever team to claim three consecutive STCC drivers’ and teams’ titles,” said Christian Dahl, CEO of Polestar.

"My goal for 2014 was to score top ten finishes consistently and I managed that in more than half of the races. 2015 will be my third year in the STCC and I look forward to the challenge together with Volvo Polestar Racing. My goal is to break into the top ten of the championship standings,” said Prince Carl Philip.

I hope the Prince remains silent about sustainability, nature preserve, the carbon footprint or the ozone layer. With his racing hobby he is the least trustworthy person to voice any worries about this... This sort of hobbies also only serves an image as a spoiled brat, in my humble opinion.

CP's involvement in races : there has just been an important international motor race in Sweden last weekend, he did not participate!? Not in his field? he does not qualify for that sort of events? So he chooses that moment to switch over to design??
I did not even see he a attended the race, gave out the prize to the winner... totally irrelevant for him?

Carl Philip races at STCC, which is driven at a race track. Last weekend was the Rally of Sweden. Carl Philip has driven rally for fun for a couple of times and he has delivered the prizes at the Rally in many years but this time he obviously had something more important to him, he attended at the Frankfurt Fair Ambiente 2015.
