Check out this cool new piece of gaming hardware Fanatec just unveiled. It’s called the RennSport Wheel Stand and it’s the perfect solution for gamers who have racing wheels but no table nearby to latch them to for optimal use. The stand is made of steel and aluminum built to handle force feedback of the strongest nature without wobbling around, features adjustable wheel angle, height, and pedal position options, and has a collapsible design for easy storage and transport.

“The RennSport Wheel Stand is a strategic product that solves THE fundamental dilemma of the racing fan,” said Thomas Jackermeier, CEO, Endor AG. “Our stand makes playing racing games with a racing wheel much more realistic and fun.”

The RennSport Wheel Stand is currently scheduled for US release on October 30th for $130 and will be compatible with a range of racing wheels across all platforms, including Logitech’s G25, Driving Force, Driving Force pro and Driving Force GT models, Microsoft’s wireless Xbox 360 wheel, and all of Fanatec’s own Porsche and Speedster wheels. In 2009, Fanatec will also be releasing a race seat kit to transform the stand into a full-on racing cockpit, so that’s something to watch out for further on down the road.
