Prince Carl Philip and Motor Racing

Swedish Prince Carl Philip confirmed at the Swedish television
program Mera Motor that he is going to compete in motor sport this
summer.

The Swedish prince was present at Rally Sweden last weekend when
Petter Solberg drove in as number three, and the experience in the
Swedish woods apparently trigged his want even more.

Prince Carl Philip took a racing licence this summer, and he got his
competing licence from Svenska Bilsportforbundet, the Swedish motor
sport association, last weekend. The Swedish prince is already an
honorary member of Motormännens Riksförbund, Swedish motorists'
national association.

Rumours that Prince Carl Philip may possible compete in Swedish
motor sport have been spinning since this summer. In the program
Mera Motor, aired at TV 4 February 24, the Prince confirmed that he
will participate in competitions in the future.


Cool.

Go-cart debut for Prince Carl Philip! (summary of an VF article)

Last Saturday, 14 May, Prince Carl Philip made his go-cart debut in a competition in Kristinehamn in Värmland, his duchy. There was a lot of hush-hush and an entry to the competition under false name.
- If I had the opportunity I would do this more often, the Prince said to VF.

The reason he chose to make his first start in Kristinehamn and the Karting Cup is Thomas Johansson, a racer driver who is an acquaintance of the Prince and who invited him to take part.

The Prince took the stir and excitement that occurred when people saw he was there with calmness and happily signed autographs to young admirers.

- I have driven quite a bit with “Flash” (Jan “Flash” Nilsson, one of Sweden’s best racing drivers). We know each other and he is really good. He has given me several tips and advices, but this is actually the first time I’m in a competition.

The motor keen Duke of Värmland is a diligent guest at several racing happenings. Both the Swedish Rally and the STCC races at Gelleråsen in Karlskoga belong to the events where he usually turns up. Last weekend’s visit to the Kristinehamn go-cart track was the first.

- Go cart is fun. If I had the possibilities I would try and drive often, because it’s both fun and gives good exercise. Luckily this race fit my schedule, but unfortunately there won’t be so many other opportunities.

His girlfriend, Emma Pernald, who stood at the side of the track – eagerly cheered Prince Carl Philip on, and even if Carl Philip drove wisely and carefully, he managed to spin around both once and twice… He ended on a 7th place in total after the super final, pretty good considering he was invited with a wild card.

Prince Carl Philip and Motor Racing

Prince Carl Philip is to make his racing debut among ”the big guys”!

Next Sunday, 14 August, Prince Carl Philip will race in the Red Bull Ultimate Driver! The race will be direct broadcasted by Expressen’s sport channel, Sport-Expressen, and the race is held close to the Royal Palace, grounds very familiar to the Prince.

Around 20 000 spectators are estimated to stand around the track. All the participants will drive new and super fast go-carts, and Prince Carl Philip is especially invited to attend. He will face tough competition in some of the best drivers in the sport.

Prince Carl Philip told Sport-Expressen:

- I class myself as a beginner, but it’s gonna be great to drive a go-cart competition in central Stockholm.

- Who hasn’t dreamt of becoming a racing driver? I feel privileged to get the opportunity to participate in this competition.

- To be with Sweden’s racing elite and learn from DTM champions Mattias Ekström, Fredrik Ekblom, Flash and the other drivers is going to be incredible fun and exciting.

The motor Prince according to Janne “Flash” Nilsson, one of the biggest profiles in racing:

Strengths:
- Easy to learn. He easily takes in information.
- The right body built. He has the ideal body.
- Sense for the track. He has a natural feeling.

Weaknesses:
- Lack of time. He doesn’t have time to practice (me: not as much as normal drivers do).
- Being a Prince. He gets judged immediately.
- Careful in the initial phase.

Summary of an Aftonbladet article:

Another ”before the race” article by Aftonbladet included two nice pictures of Sweden’s new ”motor prince”, a title he has inherited from uncle Prince Bertil who went by that nickname during his days.

This past Monday, Prince Carl Philip had a practice session before this coming weekend’s big competition, the Red Bull Ultimate Driver, in which he will compete to some big names in racing.

- I do this because its fun. I have practiced some with “Flash”, but if one looks at the competitors one has to be humble.

Aftonbladet says that it wasn’t decided yesterday if the Royal Family will come and support the prince on Sunday when the race is held at the Royal Palace. But according to the calendar, the King and Queen will be in Kalmar County on that day. But let’s hope that Victoria and Madeleine, and maybe the Magnuson cousins and some friends, will come and cheer for him.

Full story here (in Swedish): http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyhete...683309,00.html

Today the prince drove gocart around the palace in Stockholm. Aftonbladet have a video of it! http://www.aftonbladet.se/atv/index....10&clipID=2232

Before the race all other drivers talked to the press and posed for photographs, but Varl Philip hid in the VIP lounge. Bad Carl Philip, bad
He was only allowed to participate because he is a prince (others mostly professional and world elite drivers) and probably because of the "extra" PR, so I think he could have made the effort to talk to the press and wave to the crowd...

I´m agreeing. A few words to the press wouldn´t have been bad. Seeing this behaviour and knowing about Victoria´s comment to the press last weekend at the "bavarian" wedding, I slowly tend to think, that Madeleine is the most affable of the three Royal children. I must say in the past year (maybe 2 years) she has surprised me with her nice and charming interviews and little "small talks" with the press. Oh Madeleine, how much unjustness you have gotten from my side. I´m sorry. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa

Nonetheless CP looked hot today

yeah...yeah, she won´t become the first princess, who dates a gossip journalist
And she´s also not so naive to tell the press all from A to Z.

Victoria said:
– Nu får ni väl ge er, suckade Victoria

http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyhete...682118,00.html

I know, what it means (in german). But to be honest, I´ve problems to translate it into english. I will leave that to you, Yennie :p

haha, Madde and Daniel N? why not

"Nu får ni väl ge er" hmm, thats a tough one.... perhaps something like "give me a break", "give it up" or... ahh I dont know.
I´m sure there´s some english speaking member who knows the right expression. Dennism?

Well, "Give us a break". Or "Stop it now, for heaven´s sake". Something like that. But there isn´t one perfect translation as far as I know.

Just lovely

Thankx for the pics.
In every pics I've seen of her, Emma strikes me as an adorable and very sweet girl. The kind of person you would go straight to in a room full of strangers.
Carl-Philips' a lucky man!
