Prince Carl Philip shows support and passion for racing

Prince Carl Philip has attended an important racing competition, which took place in Karlskoga. 

On 7th and 8th October, the prince was at the Gelleråsen Arena, where he watched the several stages of this year’s competition which carries his name.

For 2023, the winners were Noel Sundberg, racing for Rotax Max Junior, Simon Ohlin, for Rotax Max Senior, and Rasmus Fridell for Rotax Max DD2. 

Prince Carl Philip was along for the whole two days to watch the competitions and present the respective trophies.

The Prince Carl Philip Racing Trophy was established in 2013 upon His Royal Highness’ initiative with the aim of helping “young karting talents in their racing careers”. 

This initiative was created to further support other people with the same passion as the prince.

Carl Philip isn’t the only member of the Swedish royal family to promote racing. His great uncle, Prince Bertil, loved the sport, too. Prince Carl Philip inherited his car collection.

The prince, fourth in line to the throne of Sweden, has competed in various races in Scandinavia. His favourite car is a Porsche 911 GT3.
