Gear up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023 with our expert guide tailored for sim racing and flight sim enthusiasts.
As we countdown to the starting grid of this year’s shopping Grand Prix, Black Friday is ready to wave the chequered flag on November 24, 2023, with Cyber Monday hot on its slipstream on November 27, 2023. Sim gear can cost quite a pretty penny, so if you have been eyeing something out, Black Friday might just be the right time to shift gear.
Besides having new products, we also have a marketplace for second-hand sim products which you can consider for both buying gear, and selling gear when you upgrade. The downside of this hobby is the price, but the upside is that a lot of gear is very well made and thus retains a high second-hand value.
This article will be updated with all of the deals on Simplace, so that you have a central point to consider your purchases from. FYI Simplace is a Sim Racing and Flight Sim online store based in the Netherlands, but that ships globally.
These tables will keep you updated with all the deals happening this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. One thing to note is that these discounts are set by manufacturers, and that these deals are sometimes per product, or sometimes for an entire range of products.

Before the sales frenzy, research the sim racing wheels, pedals, rigs etc. you're eyeing, and the flight sim yokes, panels, throttle quadrants etc. Use reliable reviews to check their performance and compatibility with your system to ensure you're getting quality gear within your budget.
Our sim racing knowledge base can help you make your decision. This includes an article that compares every single wheel base on the market and another that compares 70% of cockpits on the market. We have detailed articles for direct drives, other wheel bases, cockpits/rigs, wheels, shifters, handbrakes and pedals.
Popular brands like Moza and Fanatec are reputable in sim racing, but beware of lesser-known brands offering enticing deals. They may not provide the same quality or durability. If a brand isn't commonly reviewed, it might be wise to steer clear.
Prepare a list of retailers selling the same sim gear. If a website crashes or runs out of stock, you can quickly switch to another seller.
To checkout faster during sales, create accounts with retailers in advance and save your shipping and payment details.
