Fanatec have developed the Podium Steering Wheel BMW M4 GT3 to be used not just in sim racing—that would be too easy—instead it is also the official wheel BMW Motorsport will be plugging into their 2022 BMW M4 GT3 race cars.
Co-developed with BMW, the Fanatec wheel’s electronics now speak to the industry standard CAN bus which is programmable both in the real car and via FanaLab on PC. It’s also water resistant, shockproof and features a new quick release system.
Its carbon fibre construction features RGB LED-backlit front buttons, backlit 12-position rotary switches, custom thumb encoders, dual-action magnetic shifters for shifting up or down with either hand, and dual-Hall sensor clutch paddles.
The wheel is due to be released Q2 2021.
