After watching this You Tube video, about Indycar 2. I noticed this wheel, attached to the computer desk.

Apologies all, I've jumped the gun.

I posted a question on this video and Marco as got back to me.

Apparently it's a virtual pilot pro. Used in flight Sims.

I thought it was quite snazzy. Unfortunately it connects with an old serial port and not usb. Unless there's an adapter available 🤔

It's a CH flight yoke. I had one. Quite usable as a car steering wheel. Just had to be carrful not to push as the "wheel" slid in and out for flight sim climb and dive.

I also had the matching pedals. They acted as proper rudder pedals. But had chocks to put behind them to stop them sliding back and forth. You could then use the "toe brake" pivot feature as accelerator and brake.
