Thomas Jackermeier revealed that pre-orders will be offered in three waves. Depending which wave you as a customer fall into, dictates when exactly you’ll be able to place your pre-order.

Only customers who fall into the waves below will be able to place their pre-order of the new Fanatec CSL DD wheel base at certain times.
