The close title fight of the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship (STCC) will be decided this weekend between Polestar Cyan Racing team-mates Richard Göransson and Robert Dahlgren in the season finale at Knutstorp, Sweden.
Prince Carl Philip will drive his fourth STCC season finale ever and returns to Knutstorp with fond memories from 2015 when he qualified sixth fastest in Q1, as well as claiming points in both races.
”We had a good season finale last year and I hope we can pick up on that for this year as well, ending this season on a strong note,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip was 8th at the first qualifying. His teammates: Robert Dahlgren 2nd and Richard Göransson 4th.
Carl Philip was 6th at the second qualifying. His teammate Richard Göransson was 2nd and Robert Dahlgren couldn't take part because of a battery issue.

”It was really wet in the beginning of qualifying and changeable conditions, meaning different lines for each lap. I think we still managed to get a good setup and we’ll see how far that takes us tomorrow, it is going to be a really interesting day,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Poäng _ STCC

Richard Göransson was crowned champion of the 2016 Scandinavian Touring Car Championship in the season finale at Knutstorp today, setting two new records. The drivers’ title is his fifth, more than any other driver in the history of the championship, and Polestar Cyan Racing’s fourth consecutive double title, more than any other team in the history of the championship.
Prince Carl Philip had one of his strongest STCC races so far in the first race where he challenged Daniel Haglöf for fifth position, ultimately crossing the line in sixth position.
"I am really pleased with our pace in the first race, the car felt great and I was able to put pressure on the drivers in front of me. Massive congratulations to Richard for the title and a good fight by Robert, we really did get a thrilling season finale,” said Prince Carl Philip.

It was announced earlier this year that Carl Philip's team Polestar Cyan Racing will not continue to race in STCC where Carl Philip has raced, due to change in STCC regulations.

Yesterday Polestar Cyan Racing told at a press release, that Carl Philip's racing career continues in Swedish GT.

Prince Carl Philip will start his fifth racing season in 2017 for Polestar Cyan Racing in a new programme for the endurance series Swedish GT.
“I am delighted to continue racing in Sweden with Polestar Cyan Racing, the past four seasons have been eventful and very rewarding. I have raced in Swedish GT previously and this is a format that I very much enjoy,” said Prince Carl Philip.
Swedish GT runs together with the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship for five race weekends in Scandinavia where Prince Carl Philip will drive a Volvo S60 Polestar in the fastest class GTA.
Prince Carl Philip last raced in the 2012 Swedish GT season where he finished fourth overall in the GTB class.
“Swedish GT is a fine solution for us to maintain our motorsport activities on our home market. The new format of endurance racing will mean a new challenge for Prince Carl Philip and the team to adapt to, something we have full confidence in them succeeding with,” said Alexander Murdzevski Schedvin, Head of Motorsport at Polestar.
The race format of Swedish GT consists of two endurance races per weekend where Prince Carl Philip will drive alone in the shorter race and share car with another driver of Polestar Cyan Racing that will be announced in due course.
The 2017 Swedish GT season starts on May 4–6th at Knutstorp and ends on September 14-16th at Mantorp Park.

Carl Philip was today in Gothenburg to speak about his racing this season. Instead of STCC, he drives five races at Swedish GT with Volvo S60 Polestar at GTA-class. The first racing weekend is at Knutstorp on 4–6 May.

Thed Björk, Néstor Girolami and Nicky Catsburg, the drivers of Polestar Cyan Racing in WTCC (The FIA World Touring Car Championship), will alternate as the prince's driver colleagues in the longer 40-minute race in the GT races. In the shorter run, 30 min, the prince will drive the car himself.

Prince Carl Philip and Thed Björk in the Swedish GT premiere this weekend

Prince Carl Philip will be joined four-time STCC champion Thed Björk, just back from a historic World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) victory at Monza, in the Swedish GT season start at Knutstorp in Sweden this weekend.
Prince Carl Philip will drive a Volvo S60 Polestar in the fastest class GTA this season, facing tough opposition from Audi, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche drivers.
”I feel ready for the season start and I look forward to the new challenge. I am really glad to race together with Thed at Knutstorp. We work really well together and he has got a vast experience that I can utilise,” said Prince Carl Philip.
The first race of the weekend features a mandatory pit stop with driver change where Thed Björk will be co-driver to Prince Carl Philip. The second race has Prince Carl Philip driving alone.
”It’s great to be back in the same team with Prince Carl Philip again. We last raced together in 2015 when I claimed my third straight title and he claimed his first win. My mission is to create a good way of working for Prince Carl Philip – a base to build on for him during the year to become champion. I’m glad to be back at Knutstorp as well. I secured my fourth STCC title last time I was there and of course, the feeling ahead of the weekend is awesome with a WTCC victory in the bag,” said Thed Björk.
”We are delighted to have the most recent World Championship race winner Thed Björk to support Prince Carl Philip this weekend. This is the first step in our plan to give him the best possible conditions to become the Swedish endurance racing champion,” said Alexander Murdzevski Schedvin, Head of Motorsport at Polestar.
Schedule
Thursday 4/5 - 16:00 Test (60 min)
Friday 5/5 - 11:00 Qualifying (30 min) and 16:20 Race 1 (35 min + 1 lap)
Saturday 6/5 - 10:25 Warm up (15 min) and 15:15 Race 2 (28 min + 1 lap)
The second race will be shown live at SVT1.

So Thed Björk, who last weekend got his first victory at WTCC (FIA World Touring Car Championship) and is second at the championship right now, is a four-time STCC champion and races now all over the world, is there to help Carl Philip to become a champion... And in other races of the season also Néstor Girolami and Nicky Catsburg.

Thed Björk and Carl Philip won the first race today.
Prince Carl Philip and Thed Björk started the Swedish GT season in the best possible way by claiming pole position and victory, beating the field of Audi, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche drivers at Knutstorp in Sweden with their Volvo S60 Polestar race car.
Thed Björk claimed pole position for the first race despite rain hitting the track just minutes before qualifying. He then headed the field in his first race stint, pulling up a strong gap before handing it over to team-mate Prince Carl Philip.
Prince Carl Philip maintained the lead, winning the race by more than 16 seconds over the McLaren pair of Erik Behrens and Daniel Roos and 45 seconds over Audi driver Jan Brunstedt.
“The season could not have started in a better way. We managed to claim pole and win the race despite difficult conditions. The team did a really good job with the car and Thed proved that he is a four-time STCC champion. I am looking forward to the second race tomorrow, driving alone will of course mean a different strategy,” said Prince Carl Philip.
The victory has the par in the championship lead ahead of the second race tomorrow in which Prince Carl Philip will drive alone, starting second, with Thed Björk acting as advisor from the pits.
Thed Björk was first and took the pole position at the first qualifying, Carl Philip was second at the second qualifying. Thed Björk leads the championship wth 26 points, Carl Philip has 25 points.

The Polestar Cyan Racing duo of Prince Carl Philip and Thed Björk were left without points from the first Swedish GT race of the weekend, despite challenging for pole position and the race victory.
Björk qualified second for the first race, less than three tenths from the Ferrari 488 of Fredrik Larsson who claimed pole position.
“It was a shame that the race ended too soon, but that is racing sometimes. I am happy with the balance of the car and Prince Carl Philip did a good job in his qualifying session. We are definitely out for revenge tomorrow and we have some things left to do on the setup of the car,” said Thed Björk.
The duo fought for the lead with the Ferrari team Mattsson Motorsport and Audi team JB Motorsport. Bernadotte took over the wheel after the mandatory pit stop, with the race coming to an end on lap 32 of 43.
“It was a simple mistake from me unfortunately and I am of course disappointed. We showed strong form in qualifying though and I am happy with the pace, especially as we are running with 30 kilos of penalty weight. We will no doubt be back for the second race tomorrow, fighting hard,” said Prince Carl Philip.
