Thomas Jackermayer of Simracing Hardware Supplier Fanatec just announced on their blog that the first batch of their pre-selling, upcoming Direct Drive Steering Wheels, coined Fanatec Podium Wheel Base, is almost sold out.
Fanatec Direct Drive – Podium Series – Almost sold out!
I’m pleased to confirm that we are on track to ship the first batch of the Podium Series direct drive systems on April 30th. This includes all three systems: Podium Wheel Base DD1, Podium Wheel Base DD2, and Podium Racing Wheel F1® PS4™. All units already pre-ordered until now will ship on time.
Please note that due to high demand, we are very nearly sold out worldwide for this first batch. In fact, some variants are already sold out in some regions, for example the Podium Racing Wheel F1® PS4™ in Australia, and the Podium Wheel Base DD2 in Europe. So if you see the estimated availability date change on the product page, this isn’t because we are delayed, it’s because you’ve missed the first batch!
Production continues to ramp up and we are beginning to prepare the second batch, which will ship in June. Thank you for your patience; we’re really excited to get this remarkable technology into your hands.
Typically Top 2%-5% racer. Tries to not be slow.
