The Duke of Varmland and only son of the ruling King Carl Gustaf XVI has been competing in Porsches for the past few years, often beating the competition, but now he's stepping up to the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship. Starting next year, His Royal Highness will be racing for the Volvo
Polestar racing team, driving an STCC-spec Volvo S60
in one of the most competitive touring car series Europe has to offer. The team won the title in 2010 with the previous C30, but switched to the S60 for this year. We'll be watching to see how the prince does in the series next year.
