Let us have either a photo or the part number so we know which steering wheel you are talking about :)

MOT check list states:

Check the strength and condition (including any modifications) of the steering wheel by applying reasonable force.

The steering wheel will only fail if:

Steering wheel weakened by cracks or fractures, in a condition that hampers proper control or Likely to injure the driver’s hands.


So, as long as the wheel is securely fitted to the column and is rigid (as any racing wheel will be) there should not be a problem.
