    Podium DD1 Auction Details!

    Hi everyone,

    Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself as the Fanatec Community Manager. I would like to keep an eye on this forum and assist current and future Fanatec users in whatever way I can.

    Secondly, I'd like to offer some information for those interested in the upcoming auctions for the Podium Wheel Base DD1. We’re starting in Australia on Monday 20th August; other regions will roll out soon.

    The auction for Fanatec Australia starts at 8pm AEST. Each unit starts at 1 AUD with no reserve. This is for Australian customers only, but all regions can view the auctions in real-time.

    Instructions:

    - For those based in Australia wishing to participate, please create a Fanatec account in advance and log in.
    - Once active, you’ll see an ‘Enter Auction Page’ button on the DD1 product page, which launches a secure bidding area hosted on Amazon’s servers, which has been thoroughly tested for stability. (Anyone can click this link to watch the bids in real-time.)
    - Click to bid as many times as you wish. Each click will bid by a fixed increment of 10 AUD.
    - After every new bid is placed, a 90-second timer will reset.
    - If there are no new bids after the timer reaches zero, the auction ends, and the winner receives an email with details on how to complete the pre-order.
    - The next auction begins immediately, starting at 1 AUD.

    Please note:

    - Every auction is automatically capped so it will not exceed the region RRP.
    - We will ensure that at least 100 units are sold worldwide below the region RRP.
    - You will be able to see the previous winning bid values.

    Standard pre-orders for both the DD1 and DD2 wheel bases are already available in all regions, but we hope that new auction system demonstrates that we are genuinely giving our customers an opportunity to score a great pre-order price for this cutting-edge sim hardware!

    That's all for now, cheers!

    Dom

    Hi Domb and welcome.

    We have a thread where we are talking about the Podium series here. When you find time, would be interesting that you have a look and try to solve some questions we have about the podium series.

    I'll follow the auctions but I don't have much hope with this system. Last advent calendar auction was a nightmare with the overload of Fanatec's website. The same happened in Black Friday. Hope this time works better with Amazon's servers.

    Thanks for the information.

    Agreed Asturbo, Fanatec don't seem to take customer questions only like to give out information when suits them . I tried to find out about auction in australia on there official forum/Blog only 5 days ago to no avail, so I gave up and purchased the DD1 at full retail, only to find out 2 days later yeah now we will have an Auction. Thanks Fanatec for not answering my questions regarding Auction , I guess it worked out well for you. In the short term.

    Working well with a few teething issues

    Interesting so far, crashed server, started a few mins late.. first few flew through to a ceiling that appears to be slightly random.. After 4th wheel the server seem to lag and crash... could relogin in for 5 mins, but when i did, it seems that auction was restarted, so didnt miss anything.

    Didnt expect much else given people would be smashing the bid button, and trying to login.. Will be interesting to see how many they do and how long it goes on for 5 units, 10, 100, 1000 units ?

    Might be in for a long night

    100 worldwide, so may be 10-20 units for Australia? Don't know.

    The conection is very unstable. A lucky guy got a wheelbase at 1$ probably because this. Looks that you only can get a good price when the web fails and blocks the bids when your's is the last one.

    Someone got lucky and bagged a DD1 for 651AUD. The others sold surprisingly expensive so far - I'm not counting the 1$ one, because that's most likely some hiccup were no one was able to log in.

    And another one for 1$. But it happens when the auction page goes down.
