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. With his self-constructed racing car, he won 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".

Now, after 72 years, his great-grandson, Michael Sauter drives a Formel 4 monoposto racecar by the ADAC Formel 4 Championship 2021.

How everything begins...
