Carl Philip started the race as fifth, lost his rear diffuser and rear bumper when going off in Turn 5. Later he spun when he tried to pass Brunstedt and was beached in the gravel.

Polestar Cyan Racing keen for revenge after difficult Anderstorp weekend
The Swedish GT weekend at Anderstorp was expected to be tough for the Polestar Cyan Racing duo of Prince Carl Philip and Nicky Catsburg and turned out to be so, with the title hope only mathematical ahead of the season finale.
Catsburg, who never before had driven the car nor the track, started the weekend strongly by qualifying second, despite lacking over 250 horsepower compared to the main Ferrari rivals on the long straights of the former F1 circuit.
The duo was fighting for a podium finish in the first and second race, but unfortunately had to retire from both.
"I am happy with our pace this weekend, especially in qualifying where we were closer than we expected to our competitors. It was of course unfortunate with two retirements, but that is racing sometimes", said Nicky Catsburg.
"I am disappointed, this weekend did not turn out as we wanted. We will head to the next race at Mantorp Park without any pressure as the title is more or less out of our reach and just try to score the best possible result", said Prince Carl Philip.
Prince Carl Philip trails the championship leading Ferrari duo of Fredrik Larsson and Ingvar Mattsson by 48 points with 50 remaining to be fought for in the final race weekend of the year.

Double Argentinian champion Néstor Girolami to join Prince Carl Philip in the season finale of the 2017 Swedish GT championship at Mantorp Park this weekend.
Girolami, driving for Polestar Cyan Racing in the 2017 FIA World Touring Car Championship, has claimed two titles of the tough Super TC2000 championship in Argentina but has a challenging task ahead at Mantorp.
“I am very happy to get this opportunity and I will of course give my best to help Prince Carl Philip in the season finale – always a special race in a championship. It will not be easy as the track and car are new to me, but I am used to adapting quickly. I hope that together we can score at least one podium finish,” said Néstor Girolami.
A difficult weekend at Anderstorp two weeks ago has reduced Prince Carl Philip to only mathematical title hopes, as he is 47 points behind the championship leading Ferrari duo of Fredrik Larsson and Ingvar Mattsson, with 50 points left to be fought for.
”I was thoroughly disappointed after the weekend at Anderstorp as we were in for a podium finish in both races. But I have full focus on scoring the best possible result in both races at Mantorp and don’t now pay too much attention to the championship situation,” said Prince Carl Philip.

A race incident ended a promising first race of the Swedish GT season finale weekend at Mantorp Park for the Polestar Cyan Racing duo Néstor Girolami and Prince Carl Philip.
Girolami had qualified seventh despite not having driven a single lap in dry conditions at Mantorp Park prior to qualifying and was involved in a fight for sixth position with championship rival and Audi R8 driver Jan Brunstedt when the two made contact, ending the race.
“I had a good start and was faster than Brunstedt in front of me. I went on the inside of him but he tried to close the door and we made contact, ending the race for both of us. It was an unfortunate incident but the positive thing was that we were quicker than Brunstedt,” said Néstor Girolami.
Prince Carl Philip is third in the championship, just two points behind Brunstedt, with one race left.
”This was obviously not the way we wanted the race to end. But the point difference between me and Brunstedt remain the same for tomorrow and while I will start four positions behind him, just as Néstor said, the promising thing for tomorrow is that we have the pace on him,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Prince Carl Philip secured the 2017 Swedish GT silver medal for Polestar Cyan Racing in an eventful season finale at Mantorp Park.
Co-driver Néstor Girolami had to retire from the first race of the weekend following contact with championship rival and Audi driver Jan Brunstedt. The incident meant that the Polestar Cyan Racing duo was two points from second place in the championship ahead of the final race.
Prince Carl Philip made a strong start in the second race from fifth on the grid to claim third on the first lap. But a clutch problem meant that the duo dropped to finish eighth in the GTA class, claiming four points, enough to secure second position in the championship.
”I am very glad to finish second overall and big thanks to everyone in the team, Thed, Nicky and Néstor who have made this result possible. It has been a thrilling and tough season, with both disappointments and great memories like the victories at Knutstorp and Karlskoga,” said Prince Carl Philip.

Carl Philip's former teammate in STCC Thed Björk, who won 3 consecutive titles, in 2013, in 2014 and in 2015 in STCC is the new World Champion at FIA World Touring Car Championship.
Thed Björk has become the first ever Swedish racing World Champion as Volvo Cars, Polestar and Cyan Racing claim their maiden motorsport World Titles.
”To become the first ever Swedish racing World Champion is something I have dreamt about since I started racing! I can’t put words to my feelings right now but this is by far the greatest moment of my racing career. The season final went according to our plans and a massive thank you to everyone in the team, they are as much World Champions as I am!” said Thed Björk.
”We entered the championship last year with a five-year plan to become World Champions. We did it in just two years. We have exceeded all of our expectations and goals this season. Thed Björk has done an awesome job this season and is a worthy champion. The team has put down thousands and thousands of hours to together claim the World Title, I can’t thank them enough. This is the proudest moment in the history of our team and I am so proud to be able to say that we are the World Champions!” said Alexander Murdzevski Schedvin, Head of Motorsport at Polestar.
