Fanatec is launching new products and bundles thick and fast. Only recently off the back of the announcement of the CSL cockpit, and we have another new bundle.

The Fanatec ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2 is a new bundle that incorporates the new ClubSport DD wheel base and pairs it with the popular F1 Esports V2 steering wheel.

You may be wondering why this bundle exists, as Fanatec also has the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1, which, on the surface, looks very similar. However, this bundle makes the new wheel base more accessible than ever, cutting the cost of the other ClubSport bundles available.

I’m going to take a look at what is included in this new bundle, how much it costs, when its released and how it stacks up to the other bundles available.

What is the Fanatec ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2?

The Fanatec ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2 may not have the catchiest product name, but it does exactly what it says on the tin. It pairs the brilliant new ClubSport DD wheel base with the F1 Esports V2 wheel, which has been officially licensed by Formula 1 and used in past Esports competitions.

This bundle differs from existing ClubSport bundles in a few areas, including price. Both of the current bundles, the Gran Turismo DD Extreme and ClubSport Racing Wheel F1, cost €1299.95 or $1299.95. Both of those wheels offer PC and PlayStation compatibility.

This new bundle lowers the price point, making it a more affordable bundle at the expense of expanded compatibility. Out of the box, this new bundle is only compatible with PC and has no direct console support. Of course, if you swap in a Fanatec steering wheel that does offer console compatibility, you’ll be able to expand the compatibility.

What’s included in the Fanatec F1 Esports bundle?

The F1 Esports bundle essentially consists of three items. You get the ClubSport DD wheel base. This is the 12Nm wheel base, not the DD+. You also get the F1 Esports V2 steering wheel, which I think is one of the nicest steering wheels within its price range. And best of all, you get the QR2 Pro quick release system, which is a really nice touch considering the other two ClubSport bundles only include the QR2 and QR2 Lite.

Below is a breakdown of the products included in this bundle along with each products original RRP. This showcases the value received when buying as a part of the bundle

ProductPrice
ClubSport DD Wheel Base€799.95
QR2 Pro Quick Release€199.95
F1 Esports V2€219.95
Total value€1219.85

How much does it cost?

The new ClubSport F1 Esports V2 bundle is priced slightly lower than the two existing ClubSport bundles. This represents the price difference between the F1 Esports V2 steering wheel and the Formula V2.5X wheel that is included in the official F1 bundle.

This is seen as a way for PC sim racers to jump into the new ClubSport DD ecosystem with a bundle without the need for PlayStation compatibility.

You can buy the new Fanatec bundle for €899.95, $899.95, 144,000¥ or $1499.95.

When is the release date of the ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2?

You can pre-order the new Fanatec ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2 bundle right away. The product is live on Fanatec’s website and it is available to buy right away in Europe, the United States, Australia and Japan.

When will the F1 Esports V2 bundle be shipped?

On Fanatec’s website, the new bundle has an estimated shipping time of 4-7 days. Fanatec has previously stated that the majority of its shipping troubles and issues have been resolved and that orders are being processed incredibly quickly.

There is an official post on the company website from the Fanatec CMO Belma Nadarevic, stating the following;

“Firstly, following the challenges encountered during Black Friday with overselling and synchronisation errors, I’m happy to report that all but a handful of backorders for our Formula V2.5 and V2.5 X wheels have been fulfilled, and they’re now back in stock across the US, EU, and Australia.

Next up, we’ve taken the important step of switching our carrier partner to FedEx for shipments to Canada. And our Canadian customers are already feeling the difference with faster processing and delivery times!

In Europe, I can confirm that we have already lowered the turnaround time for order shipments. We expect this positive trend to continue, reaching better-than-average turnaround time by next week, thanks to the warehouse operating during the public holiday in Germany tomorrow.

Lastly, we’ve started a new partnership with an external company to overhaul our customer service processes and improve our response times.”

With Fanatec’s new shipping and warehouse partners in place, the first batches of the new ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2 bundle could potentially be dispatched this week for delivery next week.


How does this bundle compare to others?

This F1 Esports bundle brings the total number of ClubSport bundles to three: the Gran Turismo DD Extreme, the ClubSport Racing Wheel F1, and this F1 Esports bundle.

This newest bundle is the cheapest of the three offering sim racers a much lower price point. And it is the only bundle that utilises the lower-powered ClubSport DD wheelbase. Both of the other two bundles included the DD+ wheel base.

Racing WheelFFB StrengthPrice
Fanatec ClubSport Racing Wheel F1ClubSport Racing Wheel F115Nm€1299.95
Fanatec GT DD Extreme Racing WheelGT DD Extreme Bundle15Nm€1299.95
Fanatec ClubSport DD F1 Esports V2 BundleF1 Esports bundle12Nm€899.95

This is a much more budget-focused bundle compared to the other two flagship products. However, it would possibly be my pick of the bunch. The ClubSport DD wheel base performs incredibly well, utilising the same FullForce technology as the more powerful DD+ wheel. I often say that around 12Nm of peak torque is the sweet spot, which the DD wheel base hits.

Unlike both the ClubSport DD+ bundles, this bundle doesn’t include PS5 compatibility. The ClubSport DD wheel base is only stated as being PC compatible on Fanatec’s website. However, if you add an Xbox-compatible steering wheel, it will work on Xbox consoles.

Unfortunately, the F1 Esports V2 steering wheel isn’t Xbox-compatible, meaning that this bundle is only PC-compatible. This lack of console compatibility is reflected in the more budget-focused price. If you’re a PC sim racer, this bundle is probably the best of the three to buy in terms of saving a bit of extra cash.
