    Maybe it's "Ready, Steady..."

    Or maybe "Red = Stop"...

    Seriously though, I'd bet on "Racing Sport", loosely translated to German, Italian and whoever else uses it.

    The main reason I think it's used is because it simply sounds so good. "RS", "RSR", yummy!

    BMW already used the abbreviation before WWII for their 500 cc racing motorcycles.

    RS stands for Rennen Sport. Which means Super Racing in German.

    I knew that, but I am looking for the first ever use. This was the oldest I could think of. Veritas also had an RS.
