They have revolutionized the sim racing industry by making their advanced Direct Drive technology accessible at an unprecedented low price.

Direct Drive is the choice of professional racers worldwide. Renowned for its realistic force feedback, the technology delivers an immersive, responsive racing experience that significantly surpasses the performance of belt or gear-driven systems. By offering Direct Drive at this attractive price point, Fanatec is making the preferred technology of pro racers accessible to more people than ever before.

The process of availing this deal is simple and straightforward. Once you add a CSL DD Wheel Base, any steering wheel, and any pedal set to your cart, the price of the CSL DD automatically drops to 199.95€. Alternatively, you can select from a variety of suggested combinations in the Ready2Race section of Fanatec’s website.

As an example, consider the Xbox-compatible combination of the CSL DD, the McLaren GT3 V2, and CSL Pedals. This high-performance bundle is now available for a stunningly low price of just 479.85€!

Moreover, the additional savings don’t stop there. The Boost Kit, when combined with the CSL DD, any wheel, and any pedal set, is still on offer at a mere 99.95€. This represents another saving of 50€!
