Sim Racing Garage – Fanatec Club Sport 1.5 Shifter Review

Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage conducts an in-depth review of the Fanatec Club Sport 1.5 Shifter. As usual, Barry carefully evaluates the build quality, features, mounting options, and performs a hands-on test before sharing his final thoughts on the product.

The Fanatec ClubSport Shifter SQ is produced for use with all Fanatec branded steering wheels and has to be connected directly to the Fanatec wheel. That said,  Fanatec Clubsport Shifter SQ can also be used with other Sim Racing wheels such as the Logitech and Thrustmaster units by use of an optional ClubSport USB Adapter.

The Fanatec ClubSport Shifter SQ 1.5 is available at the Fanatec Store for 259.95€ / $199.95. The optional USB Adapter will set you back 24.95€.

Important: To operate the ClubSport Shifter SQ you must connect it with either one of the following products:

  • Compatible to all Fanatec Wheel Bases / Racing Wheels
  • ClubSport USB Adapter (optional!): with the adapter, you can use it on PC with any racing wheel of any brand (e.g. Logitech G29 / G920, Thrustmaster TX), in many games. For more details, see the product page of the ClubSport USB Adapter


  • PC: The ClubSport Shifter SQ will work in most games if connected to a Fanatec product with shifter port. Please check the compatibility details on the product page of the connected product.
  • Consoles: The ClubSport Shifter SQ can be used on gaming consoles in games that support shifters if connected through a Fanatec Wheel Base / Racing Wheel. Please check the information on the product page of the Fanatec product through which it will be connected to the console. It will not work on consoles using the ClubSport USB Adapter.
