Sturmkind – Backstage

Martin Müller, founder of Sturmkind, had in 2003 a vision of finally hosting real car races in the living room. Races with action-packed overtaking manoeuvres. The idea matured: The initial dream was soon supplemented by a passion for realism and so in 2015 DR!FT came into existence: A small car, not bound to any particular race track, which moves exactly like the big model. Martin was able to get many people excited about his vision, among them 1282 Kickstarter backers! In 2016 the Sturmkind GmbH was founded in Speyer and by now nine men and women are working there.
