RCCO Slot Car Sharing is aimed especially at VIP guests and newcomers. Six identical ABT Vision RCCO cars are available for guest starters at all events of the "big small" racing series, which are used centrally by the RCCO. One of these vehicles is reserved for members of the RCCO partner AvD.
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 RCCO celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2020. On the occasion of this anniversary the RCCO E-Sport Series will be staged in parallel to the "big small" slotcar racing series RCCO. Season 1 will be held with the game Gran Turismo Sport on the Playstation – as a one-make cup series with the electric concept car Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo.
