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.
