He then moved to karting in 2005, racing primarily in local California and western regional events. In 2006, Michael started his European karting experience racing for CRG in the Rotax Junior Series. In 2007 and 2008, he continued his European karting career with Dino Chiesa’s Chiesa Corse kart team with emphasis in Italian Masters and WSK events running in the KF-2 class.

In 2010 he is staying with Eurointernational, but driving in the Formula BMW Europe series as the Americas series has been disbanded.
