The one who decide to wrong step on the brakes never wins.

The story of ARC team began in 1997 and was formed by two lead figures Miro Konopka and Dusan Vyslozil. Since then, much time has passed and the ARC team has become well-known professional club even outside of Slovakia. After years of racing ARC team has earned its reputation of a solid race team that ofthen proved to be competetive even in the most prestigious international events in GT category. During its existence the team has acquired many countable titles in the series such as the FIA GT Championship, FIA CEZ Trophy or Blancpain Endurance Series. Much of this success is down to consistent hard work, skills and passion shown throughout the whole team. Each member has devoted a huge amount of time, effort, and commitment to achieve the best possible result. This achievement is the result of many sleepless nights and days without the loved ones when much time and energy has been invested into the building the right race strategy.
Each time on the start grid we realize that all our competitors want to give their 100 % and feel the same desire to win. And those moments when one achieves that good result are truly priceless. And this is why we do it. You may be totally prepared but you also need a bit of luck playing on your side. Therefore the fact that our team has managed to become noticeable and succesful is the greatest victory and satisfaction the most worthy to us. We would like to thank to all our loved ones for their understanding, to all our fans for their support and to our rivals who continuosly push us towards improvement. But most of all we would express a sincere adimiration and honour to those who will never se the wheel on the start grid again.
