The Race Controller, known as the Racing Controller (レーシングコントローラ) in Japan, is an official steering wheel controller for the Sega Dreamcast. All Race Controllers are black with orange buttons, including the PAL version, despite PAL Dreamcasts opting for a blue colour scheme. In North America it was not distributed by Sega - instead repackaged as the Rally Wheel and sold by Agetec (though games themselves still mark themselves as compatible with the "Race Controller").

The Race Controller is often considered to be the least impressive of official Dreamcast peripherals, being cheaply made and unresponsive. There are an array of third party controllers which are said to be superior.
