Fanatec Price Increase

Fanatec announced this week that Starting March 17th 2022, several products across our CSL, ClubSport, and Podium lines will increase in price. However, we are keeping the changes to a minimum, and many products will stay the same – for example we are retaining the basic pricing for the core component in our ecosystem: the Wheel Bases.

Following a reassessment of our price structure, we have also been able to lower the price of a small number of products, and these changes have already been applied. We wanted to give you a heads-up before we apply the price increases next week.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Phoenix

  • Ellis –   p9- Came from 13th then it ran top five most of the race ended up getting loose as the race got closer to the end and lost it with 32 to go and lost all my track position. This was even more bittersweet than Wednesday night because the guy who won was actually crashed out Wednesday night and I had nothing for him. I really feel like that was an opportunity to win that I let slip it hurts. 
  • Tom D – P5 – started in the rear.  Was able to work my way up to the top 10 most of the race.  I was better on a long run.  Unfortunately we had a few cautions at the end of the race.  Was able to scrap to top 5. I’ll take it. Time for a little vacation. Will be back Wednesday for more fun and games. 
  • Rochette- Phoenix hates me race ended early with a ass losing it out of 2 missing the put barrels and right into me on the wall was early on so went to play some Horizon Forbidden west
  • Brian P8  Avoided a lot of the carnage that has been finding me on a regular basis, just couldn’t manage speed thru turns 3&4…or is it 1&2?
  • Groves – P wrecked out, phoenix sucks.  Got loose and some bonehead decided it would be fun to drive through me
  • Stephen-p
  • Adam -p wrecked out- Top 10-5 speed last night, went from 22nd to 10th running down the next 5 cars in front me.. couple cautions and my cars gear wasn’t great for 3-4 laps and I fell back to 16th got frustrated busted my ass in turn 1 and smoked the wall. I was rolling center better than all the cars around me too
  • Sunday Open

Rochette- Phoenix still hates me BURN THE DOGLEG DOWN jackass lost it in the dogleg and shot right into me against the front stretch wall with 14 to go and in 8th. Cant ever catch a break at Phoenix and we will not ever speak of Phoenix ever again stricken from my record

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p3!- A record 21 caution of 86 laps of yellow. I got taken out a couple times went not a lot of damage and recovered well. 
    • Tyler – P12. Phoenix sucked! Really wasn’t a good race, got caught up in a few wrecks with other guys and even caught up in a wreck with my teammate. Had 20 incident point where maybe 4 of them were my fault. Caution fest with 21 cautions. Net coded with a guy where we touched rear tires and sent him spinning as we avoided a wreck. Gives me a nice 4x door hit under caution. Wasn’t a good night. 
    • Brian – p

Race : Atlanta

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. Wrecked, divebombed by the same driver that dive bombed several team mates monday.
    • Ellis – p13-Ran pretty good got up to P2 had bad luck with the way the cautions fell cautions come out right after I stopped under green flag not once but twice lost all my spots eventually I spun out and hit the wall pretty hard for 3 1/2 minutes damage and just brought it home
    • Tyler – P15 finished 2 laps down. Ran a solid race but missed pit entry on my final fuel lap. Ended up running out of gas coasting to pit road. Got loose in turn 2 and was taken out by a car who had their brake bias down in the 30s and couldn’t stop. Was able to get repaired and keep up with the top 8. Felt good to finally be fast. My luck will turn around. 
    • Rochette P1 Hey yo…. what ya get when you get a pole, led the most and fastest laps? Ya get a Chubby Birb in victory lane for a 3rd time in 9 nis starts. What a way to have a send off for old Atlanta and redemption for my 2nd places last year. Dominate car all race except on old tire restarts. But the birb  frankly didn’t give a damn by setting Atlanta and was Gone with the Wind 
    • Bobby -p

Tom D – P2 – Started 17th. Was running between 5th and 10th most of the race. Got caught once after green flag stops a lap down.  I was able to make my way to a top till there was a restart with 12 to go.  I decided to pit. Restarted 4th. Was just a little too loose on the restart. Made the pass for 2nd going to the line.  I’ll take a top 5 and look forward to Sunday

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p12 – got the steering ratio right but still sucked and would get loose in the middle of 1 and 2 and then pound the outside wall – maybe 6 or seven times. Not a bad finish for sucking so bad.
    • Adam – Wrecked out

Official Series

Groves – P1 – Took the lead right before a green white checker.  Leader had been going on green all day, I decided to go early and get the jump and it worked.  The set made all the difference

Ellis – Fixed Ferrari Challenge – Spa – 3 starts, 1 finish not great but not bad… Cant wait for my wheel…

  • FastTrack League – Phoenix
    1. David – p got taken out again by someone who didn’t hold his line.. 
    1. Greg p – p destroyed via flying car early on with no hood recovered to P3. 
    2. Mike – p18 – ran as high as tenth but was more like a 15th the 20th Pl. car especially on older tires. Cautions play in my favor I would gain track position. One incident I missed my breaking mark by a few feet and locked them up and slid into the admin of the league luckily we didn’t wreck. Got dive bombed by a guy and almost wrecked again I heard his name almost every time a caution came out… The final restart they all wrecked and I kind of drove through it but I got too many incidents in a black flag otherwise I might’ve had a top 10.
