Fanatec Named as the Official Steering Wheel Partner of the Gran Turismo World Series
We are pleased to welcome Fanatec, the leading brand in sim racing hardware, to our team as the official steering wheel partner for the Gran Turismo World Series.
Since it was founded in 1997, Fanatec has made numerous innovations in sim racing technology, including popularizing belt-driven force feedback, introducing load cell sensors and contactless magnetic sensors on mass-market pedals, and launching the first direct drive system for the PlayStation®4 system. Furthering its expertise through partnerships with leading car manufacturers and international racing series, Fanatec has become an integral part of modern motorsports. In 2021, the company announced plans to develop racing peripherals with cutting-edge force feedback technology through a partnership with Gran Turismo.
Today, Fanatec has been named the official steering wheel partner for Gran Turismo’s global championship, the Gran Turismo World Series. It will have its own section added to the Brand Central area of Gran Turismo 7.
Fanatec has also announced it will be providing support for the 2018 Gran Turismo World Series Nations Cup winner and current real-world and virtual motorsports driver Igor Omura Fraga as a personal sponsor. The company plans to support him in the 2023 Super Formula Lights series.
