The summer holidays are over in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and all eyes are now on Kanonloppet ("The Cannon Race"), which takes place at the Gelleråsen Arena on 17th and 18th August. With three race weekends remaining of the 2019 season, reigning champion Lukas Sundahl (151 points) leads the field, ahead of Robin Hansson (133 points) and Pontus Fredricsson (111 points).

The spectators at this weekend's races can look forward to seeing the next chapter in a keenly fought contest for the championship, as well as highly distinguished guest drivers who will be competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia. Early in the spring, Prince Carl Philip announced that he would be competing in his only motor racing event of the year as number 911 in Porsche Sweden's guest car.

At the opening race of the season at Ring Knutstorp in May, the 1997 Formula 1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve made a sensational debut in this racing series as a VIP guest entry. Today, Porsche Sweden announces that Villeneuve is making a comeback in the Carrera Cup at Gelleråsen.

– We are proud of the drivers who decide to compete in our guest cars in Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, says Raine Wermelin, Director of Porsche Sweden. The upcoming race weekend will be very special in every aspect.

– We welcome Prince Carl Philip's decision to drive with us at the Gelleråsen Arena, says Wermelin. The fact that we can now also announce that Jacques Villeneuve will be making a comeback and will be competing for the second time in this year's championship makes this year's Kanonloppet a landmark event in the history of the series.
