Following the thrilling introduction of the Podium Button Module Rally by Sébastien Loeb, sim racing enthusiasts eagerly awaited more details. This remarkable piece of sim racing equipment had the community on the edge of their seats.

SimRacing Expo: A Taste of the Real Thing

In a fortunate turn of events, enthusiasts had the opportunity to try the Fanatec Podium Button Module Rally at the SimRacing Expo the previous year.

Waiting for a Release Date

Despite the exciting previews and real-world victories with Fanatec devices, there was still one critical piece of information missing – the release date.

Rally victories by Ott Tänak and Martin Järveoja only added to the anticipation within the sim racing community.

The Big Reveal: Fanatec’s Release Announcement

The day has finally arrived, with Fanatec officially announcing that pre-orders for the Podium Button Module Rally will begin shipping from November 20, 2023. Sim racers can soon equip their setups with the very same button configuration used by rally legends.

For a price of €/$249.95, sim racing enthusiasts can get their hands on the exact button setup that rally legends have used to claim victory.

However, it’s important to note that you’ll need a quick-release system and a compatible steering wheel rim to complete your setup.

An All-In-One Bundle: Fanatec’s Convenient Offering

Fanatec is also offering a convenient bundle that includes the Podium Button Module Rally, a round Sparco R383 rim, the Podium Hub, and a Wheel Side QR2 quick release system.

Priced at €/$699.95, this bundle is tailored for those who prefer shifters sold separately, as this setup lacks paddles.

The Ultimate Rally Experience: Combining Hardware and Software

To complete your ultimate rally experience, consider pairing the Podium Button Module Rally with a new ClubSport DD+ wheel base and a copy of EA SPORTS WRC on PC or PlayStation 5. This combination promises an unparalleled rally gaming adventure.
