This year Fanatec is making anything in their hands to make your upgrade this year as smooth as possible.

LAST YEAR DEALS – 2022
Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1
Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1
This year Fanatec gives us a chance to get a cutting-edge racing wheel with a discount, and if you haven’t heard about it yet, the Podium Racing Wheel F1 includes a Fanatec Podium DD1 PS4 wheel base capable of producing up to 20 Nm of torque, which we ensure are more than enough to feel every bump on the road. Plus the steering wheel included match the F1-style, with a full PlayStation interface and multiple inputs like the four magnetic shifters in addition to the analog dual clutch, giving the wheel the capacity to have launch control on the car. With this discount, you are saving $500.00, and you will get a serious racing wheel with high capabilities and a long-lasting lifetime.
Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1 Premium Bundle
Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1 Premium Bundle
But Fanatec not only leave us with one product to buy this time. They also break the market with this bundle that will satisfy even the most demanding simracer, as well as the previous product, this bundle includes the Podium Racing Wheel F1 and the exceptional ClubSport Pedals V3, which means that this option is the most likely if you want to renew your sim racing setup in the next month. As we see on the Fanatec website, these products are in discount for a limited time, so this may be until they run out of inventory, so hurry up and don’t miss this chance!
What Happens Last Year?
Last year I can call was, to say the least, “Interesting”, Fanatec is not the kind of company that announces big discounts, they usually do not run any sale discounts during the year. In fact, their biggest problem isn’t making sales, Their biggest struggle comes from deliveries and processing times, so making big discounts are not in their ADN anyway,
But Black Friday is different, people expect some kind of discounts from them, And they do so, the last year the discount was 20% off on some “handpicked products”. The deals were launched by noon, the same date of Black Friday until stock run out. The deals were on products most in the CSL Serie like the CSL Elite Wheel Base, CSL Elite Racing Wheel, CSL Elite F1 Set, and some other wheels in the Clubsport Series.
This year, 2022 shouldn’t be far from last, In fact, at the time of writing this, Fanatec has not announced any discount yet, they probably do so after the pressure of the sim racing community asking for them.
Key Note: One thing to mention is, Fanatec did a discount on products they knew were about to be replaced by new product lines, like the CSL DD, by the time unknown by the simracing community.
Last Year Recap
- Black Friday deals start the same day at noon and stay online for a week, and until stock runs out.
- Most deals were on products (Today ), very low-end products in their ecosystem.
- The deals couldn’t be combined with existing promotions like the new CSL DD
- The limit of available units of wheels and wheelbases was 2,000 per product.
- Last year the discount was 20% off

Last year list
If we take a closer look at this list, you might wonder why Fanatec runs Black Friday deals on products about to pass to unavailable stay? If you think twice, were nice products offered by Fanatec at the time last year, and they still are good products on today days, Not being in production doesn’t mean they are bad products, I fact does products were gonna sell anyway without a Black Friday discount for sure, so why don’t get a nice discount anyway?
We sure all spect Fanatec this 2022 announce an “a not too surprise” discount on products like the DD1 or the DD2 Wheel Bases, products that were released 4 years ago, and today well established and ready for people ( like me and you), waiting for a good deal to jump right into Direct Drive experience in the right way.
The point here is, we need to learn from the former list to act and expect the best for the upcoming 2022 and “still waiting list “, so you can buy a good deal and more important with confidence that the product you gonna buys suits better your needs and budget.
Best Fanatec Black Friday Deals 2022
When Will The Fanatec Black Friday Sale Start?
Black Friday this year is (DEALS ARE YET TO BE ANNOUNCED) . Surprisingly Fanatec announce their Black Friday deals earlier last year ( we hope the same this year 2022), in previous years they didn’t do so, turning this all thing more exciting for the simracing community, this year, just like every previous year Fanatec will only run their Black Friday sale few days and probably will end when they rich the 2.000’s sold-product mark, or for a week, or whichever comes first.
Will There Be A New Product Announced?
This 2021 was big on new products releases, One of the biggest was the release of the Wheelbase CSL DD bringing the Direct-Drive technology into the masses, The announcement of the DD for the CSL Serie was a big thing this year, Rapidly it became one of the most popular products on their ecosystem. I hope this year Fanatec does something different and announces not just discounts on regular products but in most demand products as well, like the CSL new wheelbase, or the new as well CSL Pedals. though with the increase of pre-order queues they are dealing with. I don’t see this coming do.
How Big Will The Discounts Be During This Sale?
“Fanatec usually does not run sales or special prices throughout the year. There is one day per year when they sell products at a discount, and this is Black Friday.
The discount will be significant and in the range of 20%”, If you compare with the “normal” they do a 6%, So expect only discounting in a few best selling items in general terms.
Predictions for 2022
NeWs AnD AnNOuNCEmEnTs for 2022
- This was the last year 2019 /2020. ( what to expect for 2022 )
After reading all the feedback about our Black Friday 2019 offers, I thought about what could explain the negativity of some posts.
In the lead-up to the holiday season, and we all make wish lists, and if we don’t get what we want, it can be disappointing. I think many of us know that feeling if you look under the Christmas tree and the thing you dreamed about is not there. Perhaps this is a similar situation.
What did we do differently compared to recent years? Not much. We always offered just a few products with a decent discount and even announced limited editions (Formula 2018) or new products (McLaren). We don’t encourage customers to wait for Black Friday because we prefer continuous sales and not big peaks.
Where we clearly failed was to manage expectations. And this is the reason for this post; I want to manage the expectations for future Black Fridays.
Future sales will be based on these basic rules:
Fanatec usually does not run sales or special prices throughout the year. There is one day per year when we sell products at a discount, and this is Black Friday.
There will be only one or two products (bundles or individual products) at a discount. There will never be a general discount of X% on all products or free shipping. This would just accumulate most sales to this one day and create massive handling and logistic problems.
The discounted products will be popular sellers, but unlikely to be newly launched products or products we’ve had on sale before.
- The discount will be significant and in the range of 20% to 30%.
- On top of the discounted products, we might sell a limited edition with special colours or better materials like the Shifter with Carbon Fibre knobs this year which also has a price advantage of about 30%.
- We might also use Black Friday to launch a new product without a discount.
- This is how we did it in the past and this is how we want to do it in the future.
Fanatec products usually have a very long life cycle; products like the BMW steering wheel have remained in our portfolio for over eight years. The prices on our products usually only go up over time (due to manufacturing costs and inflation), which means strong used value too. We are not fans of stimulating sales with discounts and we prefer to convince customers with quality, features, functionality, and a strong price-performance ratio. Our general pricing already represents good value due to the fact that we sell directly from our own website instead of retail.
I don’t believe in cheap. I believe in value. The craziness around Black Friday does not change our principles.
And please don’t get hyped nor disappointed. Buy the things you really enjoy and nothing more.
Stay tuned we update this page on a daily basis to catch all Fanatec deals for 2022.
