Crown Prince Haakon was scheduled to be the map reader for Norwegian race car driver, Henning Solberg, but ended up as the driver of the car.
The occasion was the opening of the Hydrogen Road along the southern coast of Norway, and the car race following it. The race goes from Oslo in the east to Stavanger in the west. Only cars that run with zero-emission are allowed to be participating in the race.
The Crown Prince filled the first tank of Hydrogen in the race.
Crown Prince Haakon only took part in the first leg of the race, from Oslo to Drammen. After that Henning Solberg took over as driver, and will complete the race with different map readers along the different legs of the race.
On the 14th, Haakon will be attending the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stavanger.
