Fanatec QR2 Wheel-Side

Fanatec QR2 Wheel-Side


Motorsport-derived quick release system.

The QR2 Wheel-Side features an all-aluminium construction that is robust and durable. The all-new mechanical design of QR2 delivers rock-solid performance at the highest level.



The tapered shape automatically ensures a tight fit, and precision manufacturing tolerances result in a robust connection between your Steering Wheel and Wheel Base. The self-aligning mechanism ensures the electrical contacts are always protected.



The QR2 mechanical coupling was developed for use in real-world motorsport. It was originally used in the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 race car and has since seen further improvements for sim racing. The Pro variant (available here) is designed for use in future motorsport applications.


Ready when you are.

Upgrade compatible FANATEC® Steering Wheels with an exchangeable quick release to QR2.



Spring-loaded locking pins allow for fast and secure switching of steering wheels. Hot-swap between different wheel styles without needing to restart the sim or your Wheel Base.



Steering Wheel attachment has never been easier. Simply bring the wheel towards the base and push to fit - no need to touch the quick release.
