Community test for ClubSport Wheel: Round 3



We finally started ROUND 3 with the polls to select the community testers.Thank you very much for the great interest and participation in not less than 32 simracing forums of many counties.

This is probably the biggest community review ever made for simracing hardware and I would like to thank everybody for the application and the efforts they already made to introduce themselves. I am also very happy about the choice we made with the CTMs as they are doing a superb job.

Sean will update a list to the threads here so you can have quick access to all the ongoing polls.

On several forums we had more then 10 applications so the CTMs have chosen 10 finalists without our influence. We think that this is the best way to choose an objective tester which is as unbiased and independent as possible. If you still think that we can improve something, please let me know.

I would like to take the opportunity to wish everybody a happy Easter!

Happy egg hunt on my blog Wink

 

Thomas

Ich habe die eben erst rausgeschickt. Wundert mich dass die VR rausgerutscht ist, dafür aber der andere Eintrag doppelt ist. Denk da ist ein Copy & Paste Fehler passiert. Bin echt gespannt wie ein Flitzebogen. Das Elite kam schon verdammt dich dran ans Jo Lueg. Ich denke und hoffe, dass das CSW dran vorbei ziehen wird... Hoffentlich ist die Haptik schön realistisch von den Rims her.

Is the f1 wheel going to be from a race winning team?? A recent race winning team? ;)

Thomas, i would like to receive a PM 15 min before the preorder goes live

Or am i being too optimistic again ? LOL

You are too late! We opened

You are too late! We opened the pre-orders yesterday but within 10 minutes we got one million orders so we had to close it for the next ten years again.

I am really sorry but i will send you a PM in April  2022 (around noon) when we start the pre-orders again.

Too bad. I wont be able to buy one then lol. Seriously though I cant wait to get the base unit , but I am waiting for a rim that I like first.

When can we hope to see the first reviews by the lucky testers?

Give them time to give the

Give them time to give the wheels a good long test. If they just test the wheel for a few hours they cant see any problems that might pop up in a few days or weeks. Its best to leave them test the wheel for no less than two weeks to get the feel for the wheel and see if there are any faults. Two weeks might be a bit short though. You just need to have patience.

Patience! I was hoping to

Patience! I was hoping to get a CSW at the end of last year :-P I want my new toy!
I'd just like to know their predicted timelines for the first review. I understand that they aren't too keen to put dates out as the whinging is deafening when it is missed. I understand that thinking fully as I develop software and if/when the schedule is missed there are tears aplenty from management/marketing etc.

So you want them to rush out

So you want them to rush out a half baked review then?

No, did I ever say that? I

No, did I ever say that? I asked for the predicted timelines from Thomas when we could hope for the first reviews. Like all engineering companies they have project schedules, I asked Thomas if we could have some of that detail. It was a simple question, that THOMAS could choose to answer or not. I certainly didn't ask for you to chime in. So, please, troll somewhere else.

I was being realistic. You didnt like my answer and got all huffy. There is no need in getting all angry like this.

Look when the last poll ends

Look when the last poll ends (~4/18/12). Add 2-3 weeks for order to be finalized and shipped. Another ~1-2 weeks for reviews. Add that up and you get mid to late May. Pretty simple.

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

Hi Thomas Greetings

Hi Thomas Greetings from
Submitted by the-sheriff on Thu, 04/12/2012 - 12:05. Hi Thomas
Greetings from Denmark !.
I hope you somehow read this as I would very much like to do a danish review on the Fanatec F1 Clubsport Wheel with Pedals also.
(written in english as many danes find it natural if we can agree in doing so)

I know for sure that we "need" a review or several, here in Denmark, as there is a great base for customers and many simfans, even though we are a smaller country than Sweden and Germany that has several reviewers apparantly.

I have been the President and primary engine in running The Danish F1 LAN Simracing League, And co-founder of Team Braveheart Racing.
I have a serious amount of simracing experiance, going back to our first days in 1999/2000 where our first F1 LAN Multiplayer season took place.

We have been consisting of a group, primary 18-24 adult men, meeting across the country, with our computers, wheelsets, and competing.
We met every 2 months in a year/season, with a mission of having fun in competing in 2-3 F1 GP's each time we met, and ending the year with prizes for the Championship(s). Just like online but we did it real life !. Great great fun and exitement. The atmosphere was amazing. We were sponsored with prizes from Ubisoft and later EA Sports when we used their F1 game. We have been silent for a few years and now its time to be out racing again ;)

Personally I was fortunate to win the Danish F1 Simracing LAN Championship twice, and hold many records still.
We have had many visitors, and we were also among the very first globally to review EA Sports F1 Challenge back then, as we were invited
to their Danish headquarter to test and review their game prior to release.
Our league was also famous for our custom car skins, as every team designed their own car design, helmets, suits, wheels, etc.
I myself is also a "modder" within the F12011 Community now at Racedepartment.com

Personal info:
Name: Peter Romer aka "The Sheriff"
Location: Denmark
Age: 43
Simracing since: 1999 (MGPRS2, F1RS, F1C, F1RC, F12010, F1 2011).
My email: peter.romer.dk@gmail.com
Phone: 30 50 82 91
Website: www.romers.dk

Job: Professionally I am an IT Server and Systems Analyst/Technician, and has been doing IT on a high level since 1996.

As the primary "engine" for the Danish LAN League I have been well known for my skills in contacting, combining and joining people, and being a very good
host and diplomat if racing got a little too "serious" ;) I have also used my professional skills in the league at the IT level of things, and organizing
the platform we used.

I hope to hear from you, so that we maybe can establish a Danish review of the amazing looking Fanatec F1 Clubsport wheel and Pedals.

Best Regards / Herzlichen Grûsse
Peter Romer
