Carl Philip's team Polestar Cyan Racing will enter the FIA World Touring Car Championship in 2016 with two Volvo S60 Polestar race cars as start of a multi-year programme. This year the races were driven in Europe, Morocco, Argentina, Thailand, China...
Carl Philip's this year's teammates, reigning STCC champion Thed Björk and three-time STCC champion Fredrik Ekblom and in addition multiple STCC race winner Robert Dahlgren are part of the development work of the WTCC programme.
Further information on the 2016 WTCC Polestar Cyan Racing programme, including driver line-up, will be revealed in due course.

Carl Philip has been confirmed as STCC Polestar Cyan Racing driver also in 2016. Since Björk and Ekblom are now part of the development work of the WTCC, it looks that Carl Philip will get a new teammate as the other driver to his team.

Robert Dahlgren will return to the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship with Polestar Cyan Racing for the 2016 season. Dahlgren, the 2010 STC Cup champion and a three-time STCC runner-up, will drive one of the two Volvo S60 Polestar race cars alongside Prince Carl Philip. Dahlgren is born in 1979, like Carl Philip.

Dahlgren has
Races: 108
Victories: 17
Podiums: 45

Carl Philip has
Races: 35
Victories: 1
Podiums: 1

So this could mean that Carl Philip's last year's teammates Thed Björk and Fredrik Ekblom drive Polestar Cyan Racing team's cars in WTCC in 2016.

Carl Philip gets a tough challenge from his new teammate at STCC this year, Robert Dahlgren. At least it seems so when you read Dahlgren's interview.

How are you preparing for your STCC return?

The official test days for STCC are 12-13 April in Ring Knutstorp and 19-20 April in Karlskoga. The teams test in one of these. All teams aren't so ready yet so the organizers have made two tests. Because everything should be ok for Cyan Racing, I think that the test days for Carl Philip are 12-13 April. We will see.

Carl Philip's teammates at Polestar Cyan Racing, Richard Göransson and Robert Dahlgren, were testing their cars today at the official STCC tests at Knutstorp.
Carl Philip wasn't at the tests.
"Göransson and Dahlgren will be joined by Prince Carl Philip in Polestar Cyan Racing’s third Volvo S60 during the 2016 STCC season, while he missed the test at Knutstorp due to other commitments."

Knutstorp Racetrack is in southern Sweden, about 560 kilometers from Stockholm. So it is not a wonder that Carl Philip didn't go testing there when Sofia's pregnancy is almost in its end. The closest airport seems to be 45 minutes away from Knutstorp.

It seems clear that Carl Philip will not race at the season's first STCC races in Skövde on 1st May. The tests and qualifications are on the king's birthday 30th April, and he can't take part at the race without attending them.
No official press release from STCC or Carl Philip's team Cyan Racing yet.

Scott McLaughlin (who drives for Volvo Cyan Racing at V8 cars serie) has been invited to stand in for Volvo's royal racer Prince Carl Philip of Sweden at the new Skövde Airport Circuit on May 1, driving a turbocharged four-cylinder version of the V8-engined S60 he races here.
Prince Carl, an accomplished racing driver who is third in line to the Swedish throne, is unable to contest the opening round of the Scandinavian series because he is committed to attending the 70th birthday celebration for his father, King Carl XVI Gustaf.
McLaughlin is keen to join the main Volvo Cyan Racing team to test himself in a different competition, but his availability will depend on approval from his local team boss, Garry Rogers, who will have to rearrange his star driver's schedule in the lead-up to the next V8 event in Perth a week after the Swedish race from May 7-8.
"I'd love to do it," McLaughlin told Fairfax Media after winning Sunday's 200km second leg of the Phillip Island SuperSprint. "It's up to Garry. I have a lot of commitments before the Perth SuperSprint."
Rogers, who is locked in negotiations to re-sign McLaughlin to lead an extended Volvo V8 factory team deal form next year, confirmed the timing of the call-up could be a problem.
"He has the drive, standing in for Prince Carl," Rogers said. "It's a matter of juggling his schedule here so he can do it. But it will be difficult because we have a lot of promotions and appearances for sponsors in Perth. At this stage, I'd say no, but we're trying to work something out. Volvo want him, so we may be able to make it happen."

Micke Fransson, the media manager of STCC (the racing serie Carl Philip races in) says that Carl Philip will not race at the first races in Skövde on 1st May.
- The prince will not race. His car will be run by an Australian with a very complicated name, Scott McLaughlin.
When did you find out about this?
- We have known that the king has his birthday. There has been little different rumors about whether he would race or not. But the final decision came when we learned that the Australian would race.
Will it have an influence on the public interest that the prince cancels?
- No, it does not contribute anything to the number of audience.

Carl Philip will race his first STCC races of the season at Mantorp Park on Thursday 26th May, there are two races in the evening.

Prince Carl Philip missed the season opener at Skövde due to the 70th birthday of his father King Carl XVI Gustaf, as well as having become a father himself. For this race Prince Carl Philip is hoping for a strong comeback.
”I love to be back racing in the STCC again. I have raced many times at Mantorp Park before, but never the short version and never in twilight conditions. So I am really excited to take on these challenges and hope for a strong points haul,” said Prince Carl Philip.

The first race is at 18.45 and the second at 21.00. Small changes may come if there are crashes at the other races or something like that.

Carl Philip was 6th at the first race. His teammate Richard Göransson (with 40 extra kg's at his car) won and Robert Dahlgren (with 60 extra kg's at his car) was 5th.

Carl Philip was 8th at the second race. The track was wet. Carl Philip started from 4th place his teammates way behind him. Soon his teammates passed him and later Carl Philip drove off the wet track and lost places. Carl Philip's teammate Robert Dahlgren won and Richard Göransson came second. Carl Philip was slow, he was over 1,3 seconds slower at his best lap than his teammates.

Prince Carl Philip had a solid season start after missing the Skövde season start, claiming sixth in the first race and eighth in the second race.
“I really enjoyed being back again. I would like to have had a bit more time in the car, but I am pleased with the season start. I have two really talented team mates with Richard and Robert that I can get some tips from,” said Prince Carl Philip.
