Many Swiss engineering firms have sprung up around the Sauber F1 team. The surprising and history making thing happened on 10th of June last year. It is when Swiss city of Zurich hosted the Formula E championship.

Motor racing was illegal in Switzerland since 1955. There was a sports accident in Le Mans that killed 83 spectators in 1955. Since then, government banned motor racing around circuits. But in 2015, the ban was lifted for just fully electric vehicles. But in 2018, The Formula E took place in Zurich. And a motor event took place after 60 years in Switzerland.

Even though the sports did not come to the country till 2018, the country is very much involved in motorsport. And it is well known for precision engineering it often requires.

Uk has most number of F1 Teams. And the motorsport sector is a huge success in the British engineering, specially with the Swiss machined parts and manufacturing. There are around 4300 companies based around the Midlands and Oxfordshire that are into this business. And it is known as the Motorsport Valley.

The Motorsport Valley employs 45,000 people, and 25000 out of those workers are engineers. And the estimated sales of the Motorsport Valley was around 10 Billion pounds back in 2017, and 87% of it was exports.

Many countries including Switzerland seem interested in partnering up with Motorsport Valley.

It happens in Motorsport Valley in the UK, and it happens in Switzerland except it does not see itself as a ‘valley’ yet.”

“We want to team up with UK companies, to penetrate the markets and commercialise IP in areas such as lightweight structures, electrification, autonomous and connected vehicles, and the use of data.”
