Fanatec shows Podium Series – Their First Direct Drive Wheel Base

As if Fanatec’s CSL Elite USA & Canada announcement wasn’t enough good news on the weekend, the following is hardcore:

Fanatec just announced their plans for their first Direct Drive wheel,  which (of course) is located ABOVE their premium Club Sport line, coined Podium series:


Introducing the new Fanatec Podium Series.
The Podium products will be our hardcore range of products and positioned above the ClubSport Series. Of course the compatibility throughout the whole product palette will remain.
We try to set new standards in terms of functionality, performance and durability combined with the typical Fanatec attributes plug&play comfort, compatibility and a great price performance.
We will show the first Podium product at the Simracing Expo: Our new  direct drive wheel base
AussieStig had the honour to grab some first impressions of the Fanatec Podium DD, as posted on bsimracing:
