Thrustmaster has announced a pair of new wheel add-ons launching alongside the start of the Blancpain GT Series.

Racing fans might recognize the first wheel, lovingly named the TM Competition Wheel Add-On Sparco P310 Mod. The wheel has been designed as an official replica of the world-famous Sparco P310 steering wheel, with its unique ergonomically-designed shape, suede grips, and various high-quality materials. Thrustmaster has designed the wheel with performance in mind, it’s the perfect solution for gamers searching for a lifelike driving experience.

The wheel first launched as a package last year and is now set for release as a standalone at the request of the Thrustmaster’s racing community. The TM Competition Wheel Add-On Sparco P310 Mod features nine action buttons, two 100% metal paddle shifters, a D-pad with push button, and carbon-style button supports.

The second wheel, the TM Open Wheel Add-On, has been developed in the style of the wheels on real GT, LMP and LMS cars found on today’s racing circuits. Compact in size (11 inches/28 cm in diameter) this wheel ensures versatile driving ergonomics and helps users improve their performance. The wheel was originally sold as part of the TS-PC Racer bundle.

The wheel is the lightest wheel ever designed in Thrustmaster’s ecosystem and will allow gamers to experience Force Feedback effects that are as close as possible to real-world racing conditions. Both add-on wheel rims are of course compatible with all Thrustmaster T-Series racing wheelbases.
