On Sunday 17 August, Prince Carl Philip watched the karting races and presented the Prince Carl Philip Racing Cup at Lidköping Motor Stadium.

The Prince was welcomed by Chairman of Lidköping Karting Club Camilla Börjesson, and then watched the races.

The Prince presented the Prince Carl Philip Racing Cup to this year's winners of the J60, KF Junior and KZ2 classes: Alfred Nilsson from Tomelilla Motor Club, Anton Haaga from Team 13 and Freddie Carlsson from Åmål Motor Club.

The prize was established in 2013 to help talented young karting competitors to progress within the sport. Racers compete for the prestigious first prize in the J60, KZ2 and KF Junior classes, and the top three racers in each class also get the chance to drive formula racing cars and circuit racing cars. Circuit racing is one way of improving motor sports skills.
