The moment I sat in a kart for the first time, I thought

 "This is my passion!"

Michael Sauter


My great-grandfather, Kurt Sauter, was a Swiss racing-and-sportscar builder and also a racer.

With his self-constructed racing car, he won as a racer on the beginning and later on as a team chef good results both at national and international races. During his lifetime, as a passionate motorsports man, he built about 30 vehicles of his original brand

"Sauter Spezial".

After 72 years, his great-grandson, Michael Sauter stepped into a Formel 4 monoposto racecar.

His Formula-Career has started...
