Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 Review By The SRG

Three weeks ago, Fanatec launched the pre-order for the new Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 of which they only produced and sold 2020 units worldwide.

The Fanatec Limited Edition ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 was on sale for €449,95 / $449,95 + shipping. As expected, the wheel rim was sold out before you could pronounce its name.

One of the community members who got his hands on a unit is Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage. In his latest video, Barry takes the ClubSport Steering Wheel F1 2020 through the famous SRG review process, showing us the ins and outs of the product.
