Fanatec CEO Thomas Jackermeier has shared some hot news on the iRacing forums recently, confirming a long-running rumor in the sim racing community.
Whispers about Fanatec developing a direct drive wheel have been around for a long time but now the head honcho himself confirmed the existence of such a development program!
Even better, Jackermeier confirmed that Fanatec’s take on the much-discussed direct drive technology will be made available later this year.
Build from the ground up, the new wheel is not meant to replace the current ClubSport offerings but become a new top-end product above them, full compatibility will ensure that existing Fanatec rims work on both platforms.
Other details are sparse as Fanatic is in no rush to release more details but once more the German hardware maker is at the forefront of making high-end technology available and accessible for regular sim racers.
