From the press release of Volvo Polestar Racing, regarding the races at Mantorp Park on 25th June:
"Prince Carl Philip is not going to take part in the STCC races at Mantorp Park due to the honeymoon after his wedding".
New STCC challenges awaits in the twilight of Mantorp Park _ Polestar

He can skip races because for him racing is a hobby, not work like to the other drivers at STCC.

Unless he is in the middle of a military exercise, then he cant miss races and has to fly back

I think this was expected, that he wouldn't race so close after the wedding

thanks for keeping us informed

But he said at the wedding interview for TV4 that he takes his racing very seriously. Yes, that is a little odd that in the middle of a military exercise he can interrupt it and go racing, but because of a honeymoon he can't. I hope that by racing in STCC he doesn't take a driver's place away from someone who could earn his/her living by racing there. Of course it is PR for STCC and the team that a swedish prince is racing, but still.

Volvo Polestar Racing has also confirmed that his car will not be driven by another driver during the Mantorp Park races, meaning that the field is down to 12 cars.

Prince Carl Philip returns behind the wheel of the #13 Volvo S60 Polestar at Falkenberg after missing the previous round due to his honeymoon.
”I am delighted to be back racing again. Falkenberg is a circuit where I have had strong results in the past, so I am very much looking forward to the weekend and hoping to finish in the top ten,” said Prince Carl Philip.

The STCC weekend at Falkenberg starts with testing and qualifying on Friday, followed by two races on Saturday.

Carl Philip was 10th at the first qualifying and didn't get to the second qualifying. But because of thre reversed grid order at the second race, he starts from the pole on that race.

Prince Carl Philip started the Falkenberg weekend by being fifth fastest in the test session, just 0.581 seconds from the top time. The Volvo Polestar Racing driver qualified tenth, meaning reversed grid pole position for the second race.
”I am very happy with my pace so far, we have taken a clear step in the right direction. But I am a bit disappointed with my qualifying result, we are going to analyse the data ahead of the race. I’ve got a big challenge ahead of me tomorrow that I am looking forward to,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip got a drive through penalty at the first race in STCC today. He broke too late to a curve and hit another car, the black car at this photo.
http://www.bildbyranstr.se/getjpeg?s...id=150711AAB06
Later he had to retire because of high engine temperature. Second race later today.

EDIT: Carl Philip started the second race from the pole - in STCC they use the reversed starting order on the second race, the driver who is 10th at the first qualifying, gets to start from the pole to the second race. Carl Philip won the race, because the driver who finished first, got 30 seconds penalty. Carl Philip's teammate Thed Björk was racing hard against Carl Philip and was faster than him, but Björk was pushed out of the track and he had to retire. It was Carl Philip's first win and podium place in STCC.

Please explain your comment. The information from the race certainly does not indicate such thing.

Marty91charmed commented my post after the first race, I edited my post after the second race.

STCC uses the reversed starting order to get more excitement to the races, so that the fastest drivers would not always win and be superior. This time Carl Philip was lucky, and he was also faster than on many races. And because some of the toughest rivals retired, he won. But that was the best race I have seen him driving in STCC.

Yes, it was in reference to a crash that he provoked. And by the way, I don't think he is a successful racer at all!

On Saturday's qualification he was 14th and at the race 12th. He raced at class DD2, which was a "celebrity" race. Among the drivers were TV-personality Mats "Snickar-Matte" Karlsson and the ceos of STCC and Sveriges Bilsport.

Next STCC races are in Karlskoga, Gelleråsen Race Track. Two test sessions on Friday, qualifications and two races on Saturday.
The regulations have been changed ahead of the final three races with penalty weights being introduced, based on the standings of the championship and the results of the previous race weekend according to the following system:
Penalty weights for Karlskoga:
30 kg – Thed Björk
30 kg – Fredrik Larsson
30 kg – Richard Göransson
20 kg – Fredrik Ekblom
10 kg – Carl Philip Bernadotte
Prince Carl Philip scored a sensational maiden STCC victory in the previous race at Falkenberg and will carry 10 kilos of penalty weight.
”I have still got a good feeling after the victory that I will carry with me this weekend. I really like Karlskoga, I have had strong results here in the past and I hope to continue scoring strong points this weekend,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Finnish female racing driver Emma Kimiläinen, 26, races against Carl Philip in STCC. Emma told to Iltalehti, that Carl Philip has done a lot of work so that he has become a better driver. He gets always a lot of harsh words from the media and the public when he makes mistakes. Carl Philip won the last race partly because of STCC's reverse starting order at the second race. But Emma says that he drove well and it is nice that he succeeded. He has developed a lot during the years. It is hard to pass Carl Philip at the track, he "closes the doors" so well. Last year Carl Philip and Emma crashed two times during the same weekend. Emma says that this year they haven't crashed, they noticed how the media made a big deal about that and they decided to drive nicely against each other. Emma says that Carl Philip is a very nice man, he has a very good sense of humor, so normal, talks with everyone. Emma thinks that Carl Philip deserves his place in STCC: he likes to race, and he brings media attention to STCC.

Emma herself is a very nice and extremely positive young woman. Emma kept a four year break from racing (she studied, got married and gave birth to a girl) and returned to racing in STCC last year.
At the moment Emma is sixth in STCC with 84 points, and Carl Philip 10th with 36 points.

Thank you LadyFinn. I was surprised to read that women and men can compete in the same race... From my limited knowledge, aside from the syncronised races, woman and men usually do not compete agains each other in sports in general!

in motorized sports it's not a problem to have women and men compete in the same competition, although women usually are in the minority; there have been female formula 1 racedrivers as well
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...la_One_drivers

and in practically all equestrian sports male and female riders (and male and female horses ) compete with equal amount of succes in the same competition
