F1 Racing (UK) - - ESSENTIALS -

DRIV­ING FORCE SHIFTER For use with G29 & G920 Driv­ing Force Rac­ing Wheels (PS4 & Xbox One) Price £44.99 www.log­itechg.com

This add-on gear shifter is to ac­com­pany the G29 Driv­ing Force wheel that was fea­tured in last month’s ‘F1 Up­grades’ [F1 Rac­ing, March]. While you can use the wheel’s pad­dle shifts to change gear, the be­spoke shifter adds an ex­tra di­men­sion of re­al­ism for driv­ing video games – par­tic­u­larly as the G29 kit comes with a clutch pedal.

The six-speed shifter (with re­verse gear) is a nat­u­ral ex­ten­sion of the wheel, with the same high­qual­ity de­sign. Like the wheel it has se­cure, durable mounts to min­i­mize move­ments dur­ing shift­ing.

We’d rec­om­mend this for games with high-per­for­mance road and sportscars, such as those in GT Sport, but for the very quick changes re­quired for mod­ern F1 ma­chin­ery in F1 2017, then, you’re prob­a­bly best stick­ing with pad­dle shifts. If you have the top-of-the-range G29 wheel, this is a per­fect ex­ten­sion.
