Yes he does. There is also the Red Dot Award gala in Germany on 29th June. Probably both Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg will go there to get their Award.

The first STCC races are on Saturday at the Skövde Airport, a new track. On Friday they have the tests and qualification.
Prince Carl Philip starts his third STCC season this year and comes boosted by a strong pre-season test two weeks ago where he was seventh fastest overall.
”I was pleased with the test and that is of course a boost ahead of the season start. Adding to the excitement this weekend is the new circuit and I am very much looking forward to start racing again,” said Prince Carl Philip.

I have not followed the Prince's career at all, but I wonder - is this a high-risk pursuit?

There hasn't been serious crashes or accidents during the two years Carl Philip has raced in STCC. The cars get a little damaged but the drivers haven't been hurt.

On Thursday the reporter of Skaraborgs Allehanda and municipal commissioner Catherine Jonsson and communicator Anna Hartung from Skövde got to know how it feels to sat at Carl Philip's car. Carl Philip drove all of them three laps at the Skövde airport racetrack. He didn't want to give interviews.

Carl Philip to Sveriges Radio today
"There are many thoughts flying through my head, it's a new track. I ran a test and there are different lines and it is bumpy in some curves. Whoever adapts best will be victorious, it is just to do the homework"

Prince Carl Philip continued his strong form from the pre-season testing and was ninth fastest, just 14 thousands of a second from making it to the Q2 session, equalling his so far best qualifying position.
”Today was a good day and I am pleased with the result. We managed to get the car much better from practice to qualifying,” said Prince Carl Philip.

At the first race Carl Philip clashed with Emelie Liljeström, had to go to the pits to check the damage, got a drive through penalty for causing the crash.
He was 9th two laps behind the winner, his teammate, the defending champion Thed Björk. Carl Philip's other teammate Fredrik Ekblom was second.

Prince Carl Philip had a troublesome weekend as well, starting by equalling his best ever qualifying result with ninth. But the races was tough for the 35-year-old, finishing ninth in the first race after an incident with Emelie Liljeström and retiring from the second race after being pushed into the wall by Erik Jonsson.
”I am obviously not happy with the results in the races. But I am happy with my pace in both of the races and especially in qualifying. I am looking forward to the next race where I hope to continue to build on the speed,” said Prince Carl Philip.

I've spent a lot of my life hanging on fences at races and loved every moment of it.
Qualifiing and racing are two very different skills. This is as true for the driver as it is for the team that prepares his/her car.

Next STCC races for Carl Philip on Saturday at the Anderstorp race track, the tests and qualifications are on Friday.

Prince Carl Philip equalled his best ever qualifying result with ninth in the season opener and is avid to continue pushing forward.
”We had the speed in Skövde but unfortunately got involved in some incidents in the races. But I have a good feeling ahead of Anderstorp and I hope to be able to continue push forward, especially in terms of race results,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip was 9th at the first test session in Anderstorp.
https://twitter.com/PolestarRace/sta...20569064706048
And 11th at the second test
https://twitter.com/PolestarRace/sta...61178907475968

Prince Carl Philip lost vital time in the test session due to technical issues, meaning that he had only completed two laps in dry conditions as qualifying started. The 36-year-old is going to start tenth in the first race.
”The issues during testing meant that we lost a lot of valuable work on the setup. With that in mind, tenth on the grid is okay and I am ready to get the most out of the race day tomorrow,” said Prince Carl Philip.
The reversed grid rule means that Prince Carl Philip starts eleventh in the second race.

Poäng _ STCC

Prince Carl Philip had a tough start to the weekend with technical issues during testing, meaning vital time lost ahead of qualifying and the races. But the 36-year-old managed to score points in both races with eighth position as his best result.
”The problems we had in testing meant that we were on the back foot for the rest of the weekend. With that in mind I must say that I am quite pleased with the result in the races,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip said at the beginning of the STCC season that he wants to concentrate fully and will drive all the races.

Now Aftonbladet writes that Sofia Hellqvist has asked prince Carl Philip to think about. Therefore, Carl Philip has decided not to compete in Mantorp on 25th June.
- He is unable to combine with the honeymoon. Sofia wanted them to be away for a longer time and Carl Philip does not want to disappoint her, says a racing source.
Carl Philip races for Volvo Polestar where Johan Meissner is the press officer. He can currently neither confirm nor deny Aftonbladet's information.
- We are aware of some clashes in the STCC schedule with Prince Carl Philip's wedding, but we have yet no decision on the race at Mantorp Park, says Meissner.

Carl Philip's best result in a race is a sixth. After last season, he finished 12th of the 16 drivers. The honeymoon clash means that the chances of a top ranking this year is decreasing.
- A possibly missed race weekend obviously affects the outcome of the championship, says press officer Johan Meissner.
So far this season the prince has got together 10 points.

The next race weekend after Mantorp is on 10th-11th July.
