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".

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

His Formula-Career has started...
