The ClubSport DD and DD+ wheel bases have been around for a while now and have received positive reviews from most who have sim raced with either wheel base. However, at launch, the ClubSport DD and DD+ wheels were only available in Europe, the United States and Australia. The Japanese stock wasn’t immediately available.

The same applies to the ClubSport DD-based bundles, such as the GT DD Extreme and ClubSport F1 Esports, that have been released in recent weeks and months. These bundles, along with the individual wheel bases, are now in stock in Japan, with a good amount of stock available.

Despite this new stock becoming available to purchase in Japan, there is one noticeable exception. The ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 is still not available to buy in Japan. Here are all of the details about which Fanatec bundles are available in Japan, and which are currently unavailable.

Which Fanatec wheel bases are available in Japan?

Starting with the wheel base availability in Japan, the good news is that both of the newest ClubSport wheel bases are in stock in Japan, as well as all other regions. (Correct at the time of writing).

Currently, all regions have stock available for both the ClubSport DD and DD+ bases. In Japan, all wheel bases other than the older DD2 wheel are available for immediate dispatch.

Below is an overview of all available Fanatec racing wheels in Japan.

Which bundles are available in Japan?

In addition to the wheel bases above, a range of sim racing bundles are in stock in Japan. These include the new Clubsport F1 Esports V2; however, the GT DD Extreme is currently out of stock, and the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 isn’t listed in the store.

The ClubSport F1 Esports V2 is the newest bundle that Fanatec has released and pairs the lower-powered ClubSport DD wheel base with the popular F1 Esports V2 wheel. This is a PC-only racing wheel, but it is the lowest-cost bundle Fanatec offers that utilise the newer wheel base.

Fans of Gran Turismo aren’t in luck, as the GT DD Extreme racing wheel bundle is currently sold out, and there is no date available for when it will be back in stock.

For unknown reasons, the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 isn’t listed in the Japanese storefront. This wheel uses the more powerful DD+ wheel base and is our pick of the bunch among the new bundles Fanatec has released recently.

We can only imagine the lack of stock in Japan is due to a licensing issue, which was one of the reasons the newest batch of sim racing products was late to the Japanese market while being available in Europe and the United States much earlier.

Below are all three recent ClubSport DD bundles and their current stock availability in Japan.

Which ClubSport bundle is the best one to buy?

Each of the three bundles that use the ClubSport DD wheel base are incredibly good and competent sim racing bundles. However, each bundle has its pros and cons.

The newest of the three bundles, the F1 Esports V2 bundle, is the cheapest. It uses the lower-powered ClubSport DD wheelbase and a relatively affordable steering wheel, which makes it very competitively priced at 144,000¥.

Fanatec ClubSport DD Bundles Compared

The main downside of the F1 Esports V2 bundle is that it is only PC-compatible. The wheel base is compatible with Xbox, and the steering wheel is PS5-compatible. However, you need additional products to enable either of these compatibility options. Out of the box, this is a PC-only racing wheel.

Our recommendation for the best ClubSport DD bundle is the Racing Wheel F1. However, currently, this is the only wheel base of the three to not be listed on the Japanese storefront.

When will the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 be in stock in Japan?

We believe the main reason the bundle that utilises the Formula V2.5X steering wheel is not in stock is licensing reasons. This may not be the entire reason; however, it has been known that licensing in Japan has taken longer than in other regions worldwide.

This has delayed the launch of the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1 bundle more than other bundles, possibly because it is a PlayStation 5-compatible bundle.

We believe that stock isn’t far away from being available to buy in Japan; however, we do not have an exact date for when this will happen.
