About us? Well what to tell you? We could tell you just the usual background, if you want to hear that scroll down to the background section.
If the following sounds
like a "mission" statement, that's because it probably is. If the
way it is written sounds unprofessional, maybe to straight forward? Well then
we most likely are not the right fit for you, your team or your company.
We are good at what
we do because we love doing it. And we are doing it by choice and not because
it is something we stuck with. We love racing, but it is not the most important
thing in the world and for sure it's not solving the world's problems and
neither do we. In the last twenty plus years we have established relationships,
personal and professional which puts us in an unique position within the industry
based on trust and honesty and that's why people work with us. We build a
network of professionals for all aspects of a program so we can put together
the right group of experts and talent what is needed to succeed and produce
We all want to make
money but the saying, "if you want to make a small fortune in racing
start with a big one", is there for a reason. Racing, motorsports
in general especially on the top level is expensive, very expensive. And
therefore it's not for everyone regardless of the talent at hand.
We chose who we work
with and who we work for. Chemistry is more important for us than the "bottom
line", because if you don't like who you work for, or work with it does
not matter how much you get paid for doing it. Because at the end you will
not enjoy doing it and the end results will show it. So why even do it in
the first place then.
So If you still want
to find out how we got here. Below is our background.
Movement Arts was founded by Matthias Czabok 1992 in Nürnberg Germany as a full service marketing and advertising agency. Matthias had a racing background himself and raced motorcycle GP bikes as well as in junior open wheel classes such as Formula Renault in Germany and Europe.
In 1999 he made the decision to shift the focus of his agency and solely concentrate on programs in racing and within the motorsport industry.

Danner at the time was also a part owner in a US based Champcar program.

Larry Blair, which resulted in Matthias also becoming a minor owner in the

in North American based racing programs, a decision was made in 2001 to relocate
Movement Arts full-time to the United States. First with offices in Indianapolis
and Chicago before relocation to the US east coast in Rhode Island. Working
with championship-winning individuals, teams and organizations, Movement Arts
has and is utilizing its extensive experience within the motorsport industry
to produce winning results for its clients and partners.
In 2008 Movement Arts
founder and owner Matthias Czabok joined championship winning IMSA WeatherTech
prototype team JDC-Miller MotorSports as one of the teams key principals and
oversees the team commercial activities as EVP Head of Corporate Development.
