From personal experience, Fanatec make some of the best sim racing wheels money can buy. For Black Friday, the company has unleashed something special — a new deal every day on its direct drive wheels, pedals and gear shifters.
My love for racing games all started when my Dad bought me a PS1 and the original Gran Turismo. Since then, my hobby has become a whole lot more sophisticated, thanks to using a wheel and pedals over a controller and the huge advancements of driving physics in games like Gran Turismo 7 (just $19 right now).
Fanatec has led the charge on this, but the gear is getting pricey, so any sort of price cut is a unexpected to say the least. That's why these sort of deep savings of over 50% off come as a massive surprise to me. Let's get into them.
Update Nov. 22: These are Fanatec's Black Friday deals for today. Bookmark this page, as I will be highlighting every new Fanatec Black Friday deal when they go live!
