For Season 6 World eX Bizz will return to its original format, spanning over the full motorsport season. Season 6 runs from March to December 2023. The season consists of ten monthly events. Each event starts with an interesting guest in the World eX Bizz Talk. Free practice is followed by a 10-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. All drivers can see each other and talk to each other via Zoom creating the very special spirit of World eX Bizz which is more about having fun and chats with great personalities than race wins and titles.
The season will start with a night race on the Bahrain International Circuit and will come to a climax on the world's most longest and most demanding race track: the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
All other venues will be decided by the competitors after each World eX Bizz event. Expect the spectacular Maastricht street circuit on our short list for Season 6.
The official World eX Bizz races are happening monthly on the first Tuesday of a month but we are meeting and driving the eX ZERO on a regular basis. Every Tuesday evening is reserved for our Bizz competitors. From 18:00 UTC we are talking via Zoom, practicing and staging fun races to improve our driving. Our Bizz competitors are helping each other to reach a better level and it happens that real-world PRO racing drivers and esports racers are part of the "Meet & Drive" evenings.
The first Tuesday of each month is race day in World eX Bizz. And each of our race days begins at 18:00 UTC with an exclusive talk with an interesting personality working in motor racing, mobility, technology, climate protection and esports racing. Our main topics are #racingfortheclimate and #drivingthefuture and we've already enjoyed many interesting discussions with high-calibre guests. And it is by no means a one-way conservation: World eX Bizz competitors can talk directly with our guests.
World eX Bizz is part of the #racingfortheclimate initiative. Our participants are aware of the climate crisis and the need to act. We want to make a small contribution to climate protection. We are proving that races with emission-free racing cars can be as fascinating as races with conventional drives. We are encouraging all our participants to actively support a climate protection initiative and show their support by displaying the logos on their virtual race cars or even create a special livery inspired by a climate protection theme.
If you are competing in World eX Bizz you are doing something for the climate. For each podium result in both classes we will plant a tree at the end of the season. This makes 60 trees in Season 6.
Why is it so good to plant trees? Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Every additional tree helps to reduce our carbon footprint and we are glad to contribute a little piece with World eX Bizz and #racingfortheclimate.
World eX Bizz is first of all about fun, networking and meeting great people. It's secondary who is winning the races and the PRO and AM championship titles. That's why we have a unique system how to award prizes. We will have a nice give-away for each event which will be raffled among all participants of a World eX Bizz event – completely independent of the race results,
The logic is similar for the end-of-the-season awards: expect some stunning prizes you can't buy. Watch this place for updates!
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 in 2022 when he also clinched the Season 4 and Season 5 titles with Stefan Waschow and Markus Martin winning the first Bizz AM titles.
Season 6 of World eX Bizz will begin on March 7.
