Strong words from the world of motorsports and the automotive industry
Since 2012, a one-make cup within the ‘big small’ racing series has been organised, targeting VIP guests and rookies. The RCCO organisation supplies six identical cars at every RCCO event which are participating within the ‘real’ race but which have their own classification. The Audi TT cup cars which have been used in previous years, will be replaced by the Schaeffler Vision RCCO in 2017.
Every team participating in the ‘big small’ racing series, is connected to a media partner. The logo of the media partner is visible on the cars and the team gear. In 2004, a specific championship has been created for media partners: the Media Cup. The best-placed cars of each race are counting for the championship. Each media partner has to cover the ‘big small’ racing series at least once a year. The list of winner includes prominent media like AUTO BILD motorsport, auto motor und sport, MOTORSPORT aktuell, the Auto Zeitung or uptrend, the lifestyle magazine from RCCO partner ABT Sportsline.
The Hanse-Ring route is the ‘home base’ of the ‘big small’ racing series. Every Wednesday, the RCCO teams have the opportunity to test on the five-lane race track in Harburg. The 28-metre-long track was designed and built by Ralf Möller, a specialist of the wooden tracks. The Hanse-Ring is also home of SRC Hanse Ring Hamburg e.V. and is situated in the ‘ice cellar’ of Villa Harburg in Hamburg-Harburg. This cellar is more than 150 years old.
