The DNA of World eX Bizz comes from the "big small" slotracing series RCCO which was founded in 1991 by Thomas Voigt and has become one of the most popular slotracing series in the world. The motorsport industry was involved in the series right from the start including regular guest entries from popular real-world racing drivers and many events of the series taking place at popular racing events like Formula E, DTM or World Rallycross. The aim was always to bring together interesting people from the motorsport business, mobility, marketing and media.
With the growing popularity of esports racing, the RCCO decided to bring the spirit of the RCCO Slotracing Series into the virtual world. The RCCO E-Sport Series was launched in 2020 racing the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo on the Playstation. RCCO slotracing ace and model car artist Michael Niemas became the first RCCO esports racing champion who successfully defended the title in Season 2 when the series switched to rFactor 2 and the all-electric eX ZERO.
Niemas defeated Andre Dietzel from Volkswagen Communications in the title-deciding Super Finale on the famous Nürburgring-Nordschleife in Season 2 while automotive engineer and World eX Race Director Julius Martin clinched the Season 3 tile winning the Super Final at Le Mans. It was copy-paste for Julius Martin who also clinched the Season 4 title after a controversial clash with Andre Dietzel in the Super Final in Surfers Paradise. This means Andre Dietzel has become a runner-up in World eX Bizz for three times in a row.
Season 5 of World eX Bizz starts on September 6.
Each season of World eX Bizz spans over two quarters of a year. Season 5 runs from September to December 2022. A season consists of five monthly events. Each events starts with an interesting guest in the World eX Bizz Talk. Free practice is followed by a 20-minute qualifying session with the fastest driver grabbing pole position for Race 1. The starting order for Race 2 is defined by the result of Race 1, with the top 10 starting in reversed order. This creates some interesting overtaking and gives the AM drivers a good chance to fight for overall podiums.
