One of the coolest wheels on the market (well, depending on where you live) has been updated for racers on Automobilista 2. The Thrustmaster SF1000, the formula wheel rim with the big display in the center of it, now has another sim that it is fully integrated with.
Originally released with support only for F1 2020, the wheel has since received display support for F1 2021, RaceRoom Racing Experience and iRacing, albeit limited there due to iRacing’s data limitations on real-time tire information.
The wheel comes with a slew of buttons and knobs to play around with, but thankfully Thrustmaster provided some mapping suggestions for sim racers so they don’t struggle with it out of the box.
The 4.3” LCD display is not a common addition to many of the wheels in this price range. Other display-type wheels usually cost a lot more, so if you can get your hands on one and you have the right Thrustmaster peripherals to use it, it is a pretty neat rim to have.
Automobilista 2 continues to age like wine. Besides the new wheel support, AMS2 is expected to release their version of Monza soon along with a BMW 2002 Turbo, an additional vehicle to the Vintage Touring Car class. AI updates, UI updates and a Multiplayer Rating System is expected as well, some of which won’t go live until November at the earliest. Stay tuned here for more on that when it happens.
We also have a Traxion review on this Ferrari rim, so if you haven’t already, check it out below. With the F1 games, AMS2, RaceRoom and iRacing with the display support now, what other games would you like to see receive the official support? Let us know in the comments below!
