Black Friday is upon us – and with it, new chances to obtain high-quality sim racing gear without going bankrupt. We took a look at the most interesting deals for base gaming equipment, your sim racing set-up and lastly, some games that you should not miss out on. While the next-gen consoles Xbox Series X|S and PS5 are sadly excluded from any Black Friday sales, we can show plenty of other highlights of this year’s best bargain shopping day:
Get started with gaming
If you want to enjoy some virtual racing action, there are some basic components you need to have a sufficient racing or gaming experience. Basic components like a mouse, keyboard or headset are available on a Holiday discount at Logitech. For more specific needs like VR goggles or other technological devices, Microsoft offers some attractive sales this Black Friday. The game store is not excluded from the discounts and features the Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition for only $16, so don't miss out on that if the game is not yet in your possession.
