The next race car wheel will be for Rally!

We continue to leave our footprints in the motorsport world and it won’t stop with Pikes Peak and GT3 Racing! With our latest partnership together with M-Sport Ford Rally Team we are getting ready to see Fanatec inside the Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 that will make its debut race in Rallye Monte Carlo on January 20, 2022. Establishing this partnership at the start of the hybrid era in WRC is the perfect timing for us to be involved and keep on changing the motorsport world forever, making sim racing be a given part of any racing series. 


The all-new Puma Hybrid Rally1 looks great, if you squint extra hard you might spot something we made in this video:  



While we’re not quite ready to show you the product and all its details today, be on the lookout during the upcoming rally weekend and you will already see it in action.


  • Release year for simracers?

  • Looks quite nice! I hope it won't be too expensive.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah! This is nice and all, but what about that QR2? When we gonna get some of those?

    Seriously, the Puma WRC Hybrid doesn't rub me the wrong way. It just looks like a taller hatch back WRC car. This season is going to be interesting.

    I already put this wheel into my unobtainable category in anticipation of it's eventual price reveal. I would like to see some features from it making their way into plebian priced products. That would be nice.

  • Hopefully rally games will support encoder. WRC 10 does not offer different settings for mapping, traction control or ABS not to mention an option to change it while driving; Dirt Rally 2.0 neither

  • It looks fantastic. I think it'll also make for a great TCR wheel. I have to wonder though. Will the wheel ship to sim racers with a PAPM, or is Fanatec making a new Push/Pull static shifter for rally racing? 🤔

  • Please oh please make it compatible with Xbox!

    The BMW GT3 one is only compatible with Windows and PlayStation, which is a bummer.

  • The WRC eSport championship will take place on Feb. 4th instead of 20th of Jan.

    So I guess we have to wait a bit longer for the new Fanatec WRC wheel to be revealed.
