, by Mark Verwoert, 1 min reading time

From racing wheels and pedals to cockpits and accessories, there was something for everyone to save on this year.

Key Highlights

    • Major brands like PlaySeat, Trak Racer, and MOZA Racing offered discounts of up to 20% off on select products.
    • iRacing offered a 25% discount on their annual membership, making it an attractive option for new and existing subscribers.
  • There was a noticeable increase in demand for sim racing products, with many brands selling out of stock quickly.

Impact on the Sim Racing Community

The Black Friday sales of 2023 helped to introduce sim racing to a wider audience and also gave existing sim racers the opportunity to upgrade their setups. It's yet another sign that our community is growing ever stronger. As the cocreation between professional racing and sim racing increases, it will create even more osmosis. The future looks bright for sim racing. As the popularity increases, better products for better prices will enter the scene. MOZA Racing being one of those examples. 

Looking Ahead

With the success of the 2023 Black Friday sales, brands are likely to continue to offer deep discounts on sim racing products in the future. This is good news for sim racers, who can expect to find even better deals on the latest gear.

Overall, the 2023 Black Friday sim racing sales were a positive event for the industry. Brands saw a significant increase in sales, and sim racers were able to save money on essential gear. The sim racing community is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, and the Black Friday sales are likely to be even more competitive in the future.

Next year we'll continue to use our Black Friday information page as a central place to see all the deals happening, with links to all of the products on sale.
