Fanatec yesterday announced the renewal of their licensing and partnership with Formula 1, placing them as the official provider for F1 Sim Racing and re-announcing the new Clubsport Racing Wheel F1 product first mentioned last month.

Blog text:

Fanatec is pleased to announce that it is continuing as an Official Licensee of Formula 1® and Official Provider of Formula 1® Sim Racing with a new multi-year agreement.

As Official Provider of Formula 1® Sim Racing, Fanatec supplies teams and drivers with a full racing set up including a steering wheel, pedals, direct drive wheel base, and cockpit. Round three of the 2024 F1® Sim Racing Championship will take place on May 7.

We have recently introduced a new Officially Licensed Formula 1® package:

ClubSport Racing Wheel F1®.

This combines a new F1® Steering Wheel with unique blue forged carbon finish together with the acclaimed 15Nm ClubSport DD+ Wheel Base. Officially licensed by PlayStation for PS5® and PS4™ consoles, this product was developed under the official licensing and approval of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

The iconic 270 mm ClubSport Formula wheel features a stunning blue forged carbon finish with perforated leather grips, magnetic paddle shifters, OLED display, and RGB LEDs. The Direct Drive Wheel Base uses a custom 15 Nm servo motor designed in Germany specifically for sim racing, achieving best-in-class thermal and slew rate performance. The combination of Steering Wheel and Wheel Base is completed with the included QR2 quick release system, which ensures a precision fit and flawless transfer of force feedback from the motor to the driver’s hands.

The finest detail is achieved with FullForce, Fanatec’s new force feedback protocol tailored specifically and exclusively for Fanatec Direct Drive.

The ClubSport Racing Wheel F1® is available now at Fanatec.com!

Emily Prazer, Chief Commercial Officer at Formula 1, said:

“Throughout the last six years, our partnership with Fanatec has gone from strength-to-strength providing our worldwide gaming audience with realistic F1 products that brings the thrill of racing into their homes and lets them compete through onsite activations at our Grands Prix.”

Belma Nadarevic, CMO of Fanatec, said:

“We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with Formula 1 and to be the Official Provider of F1 Sim Racing. Formula 1 and Fanatec share the same desire to bring authentic, immersive motorsport experiences to fans everywhere.

“Sim racing is an integral part of modern motorsport, training the new generation of F1 stars, providing a genuine path from virtual to real-world racing success. With the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1, fuelled by the latest Fanatec technologies, we’re raising the bar for realism in your home simulator. We want everyone to dive deep into the heart-pounding excitement of Formula 1.”
