Fanatec and Formula 1 Renew Licensing Partnership, Launching ClubSport Racing Wheel F1

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. Since 2018, both parties have continued to push the boundaries of real-world motorsport and sim racing, giving fans across the world the chance to experience the rush and thrill of the world’s greatest sports and entertainment spectacle in their own home, and in the Fan Zones and Paddock Club of Formula 1 races across the globe. As part of the new deal, Fanatec will also continue as the Official Provider of Formula 1 Sim Racing, supplying 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.

The ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 is the latest officially licensed F1 hardware package from Fanatec, combining 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 Direct Drive Wheel Base uses a custom 15Nm 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.
