It’s that time of year again where you can still taste the turkey roast and pumpkin pie, and retailers slash their prices. Yes, it’s Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the US calendar — and increasingly around the rest of the world too.
Racing gamers of all stripes are well catered for as usual, with offers on a bunch of hardware — and software — to help extract the most out of our hobby. If you’ve been eying up some Fanatec bits and pieces then, as usual, you’re in for a treat this weekend with some great deals on the brand’s peripherals.
These deals are available exclusively in the Fanatec webshop, from 0800 UTC on Black Friday through to the end of Cyber Monday (November 29 to December 2). If you like what you see, click on through the affiliate links below.
25% Off – ClubSport Pedals V3 with Brake Performance Kit
Reduced from $389.90 (and €389.90), the ClubSport Pedals V3 come in at a 25% discount for Black Friday. They feature a full, CNC-machined aluminum construction and Hall effect sensors on throttle and clutch pedals to improve precision. The pressure-sensitive load cell brake system features a 90kg sensor, with stiffness and travel adjustment. Each pedal has a 12-bit resolution, along with vibration motors on brake and throttle pedals to simulate effects like ABS and traction control.
There’s two different springs for the throttle with different strengths, an option damper kit for the throttle and brake, and a brake performance kit that stiffens the action. The full kit is available for $299.95/€299.95.
ClubSport Shifter SQ V1.5 Limited Edition 2019
Also available on Black Friday is this exclusive, limited run version of the ClubSport Shifter SQ V1.5. You’ll only be able to pick this up during this holiday weekend, coming in at the same price as the regular model at $199.95, or €259.95.
It uses the same construction as the regular model, with switchable seven-gear H-pattern and sequential modes. The H-pattern mode features a reverse gear with inhibitor switch to prevent accidental shifting into reverse. For this limited edition model there’s a unique color scheme, with a matte gray body, red anodized lever, and matte carbon grip.
15% Off – CSL Elite Pro Kit for PS4
You’ll need to be quick to grab this limited edition bundle, and it’s only for customers in Europe. This complete kit for PS4 comes in at a 15% discount compared to buying the items separately, priced at €699.95.
For that you’ll get the CSL Elite Racing Wheel for PS4 — that’s a CSL Elite Wheel Base+ with a CSL Elite Steering Wheel P1 for PS4 — and the CSL Elite Pedals LC, along with all necessary cabling and tools for setup and adjustment. There’s also additional PS4 button caps for ClubSport Steering Wheels should you wish to use a different rim.
Five new Clubsport Wheel Rims
Fanatec will use Black Friday to launch five new wheel rims for the ClubSport range too. There’s the 10.5-inch Classic 2, with an anodized silver finish, for vintage and historic race cars, and the 10-inch GT Alcantara, which uses lime green accents to put you in mind of a fast GT road car.
The 10.5-inch NASCAR wheel rim, an officially licensed NASCAR product, features Alcantara grips and hub cover with an embroidered NASCAR logo, and the 10-inch R330 uses leather, with neon blue and neon orange flashes. You can also get the Flat 2, a small, 8.4-inch wheel designed for faster steering inputs.
All come in at $129.95, aside from the NASCAR wheel at $149.95.
