Fanatec Looks Back At The Podium Series Community Event

Back in August, the well-known German Sim Racing peripheral manufacturer Fanatec hosted a community event were selected community members were invited to test and compare the new Fanatec Podium Series Direct Drive wheels to various comparable solutions on the market.

We could already enjoy some impressions by AussieStig and GamerMuscle who both attended the event hosted in the Haeusl’Air Flightschool hanger at the Landshut Ellermühle airfield in Germany. Now Fanatec published their own video looking back at the very successful Podium Series community gathering.

Fanatec Sim Racing Hardware

Endor, with its Headquarters in Landshut Bavaria, was founded in the year 1997 by Thomas Jackermeier, who turned his hobby into his profession. As an active player of early-stage PC-Games, he very quickly recognized the decisive role that input devices would play on performance, reality, and fun. During the 90’s, the choice, from among what was available on high-quality devices, was very limited. Thomas decided to give up his wholesale biking store, a start-up business he had used to finance his educational degree during his time at the University of Regensburg while obtaining his Masters of Business Administration. Following his studies, he bought the company AB-Union, which was changed to Endor Ltd., which would later become Endor AG.

The developed products were never marketed under the name Endor, but rather under the brand name Fanatec, providing Endor with the flexibility needed, to be able to introduce new brands into varying markets as desired. Fanatec products are developed in Germany, produced in Asia and are sold globally via the official online webshop.

Today Fanatec can count itself amongst the global market leaders in high-end sim racing equipment for consoles and PC systems. For more product info and purchases, check out the official Fanatec web page.
