Officer Dan Headed to Formula D in LB with Sexy Ring GT-X Seats

At the beginning of this month we announced our partnership with the zany, Officer Dan (aka Dan Brockett). As previously mentioned he will be running Status Racing seats in the Drift 4 video and his up coming events in the Formula Drift series.

We have been working with Dan and his team on the details of the partnership for a while now, but once it was a go, we had to rush his seats to get done in time for Long Beach next weekend. Another great reason why it rocks to have seats made in america, you can have a customized seat rushed, without losing quality or worrying about overseas shipping. Even though the order was rushed, we were able to grab some pictures before they left the warehouse in Washington. (Scroll for pictures)

Dan is a tall guy, so we got him fitted with our FIA Approved, Status Racing Ring GT-X seats with Carbon Fiber backing. He designed the fabric and stitching combination himself. He went with black ultra suede on the outer part of the seat and gray ultra suede, topped off with neon yellow diamond stitching down the middle. He used the neon stitching around the edge of the white logo. To go along with his FIA approved seats, he needed some FIA approved Status Racing 6 point harnesses.

Below are pictures of the seats in Washington, about to be shipped off. The second set of pictures, are ones that Dan posted on Facebook when he got the seats! We can’t wait to see them in the car and tearing it up on the track next weekend. Let us know what you think of the seat design. Tell us in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Come Visit Us this Saturday

This Saturday is going to be a busy day for Status Racing we have two local events that we are going to be setting up at. We will be starting out at an even our sister company Vivid Racing is hosting with Xtreme Xperience out at Firebird Raceway (aka Bonurant). They are hosting a car meet with the opportunity to track some of Xtreme Xperience’s supercars. Some of the supercar line up that you could track will be,

  • C7 Stingray
  • Lamborghini Lp560
  • Ferrari F430 Scuderia
  • Ferrari 458 Italia
  • 911 Turbo
  • GT-R

If you don’t want to track a supercar, there will be other cars to gawk over and a food truck to grub on. Most importantly we will have a full seat set up out, so come by and try out the different sizes, and see them up-close and personal.

Then once we wrap up that, we will be heading over to Murica Motorsports in Tempe to celebrate the opening of their new shop. They will also have a ton of cool cars posted up as well as a DJ, some simulators on hand to test out, but mostly you will get to see the home of their grass roots shop.

Below are flyers for both events. If you’re interested in tracking a car with Xtreme Xperience email marketing@statusracing.com and we will be able to hook you up with some awesome deals. Both events are open to the public and we encourage you to bring out your car and show off your build.

Feel free to hit us up with any questions. See you Saturday!

Murica Motorsports Open House

We are excited to be teaming up with one of our local dealers for their open house. Murica Motorsports that is becoming a household name in the Phoenix area, and being an American Made seat company, we couldn’t help but team up with a place called Murica Motorsports. Specializing in Honda and Nissan parts they pride themselves on their grassroots and personalized approach.

Join us the evening of March 29th for Murica’s Motorsport’s open house. If you feel like spending the whole day with us you can come to the Vivid Racing Meet Up that morning at Bondurant Raceway.

Status Racing Teams Up with Officer Dan and the HPPD

We are proud to announce our partnership with the infamous Officer Dan of the HPPD. If you’re never heard of Officer Dan, then we’re going to assume you don’t spend that much time on YouTube. The first “Drift Battle” Video was released by Icon Motorsports in 2011. It was a sexy 93 Rx7 pushing out 375 horsepower, racing a 05 Kawasaki ZX-10 with 175 hp and an extended swingarm. It was an awesome video with tons of tire shredding and sideways slow-mo’s. It racked up a couple million views within the first couple months of being out. After the success of Drift Battle 1, they decided to recreate the epic battle, but with more of a story line. Enter, Officer Dan.

Officer Dan, of the High Plains Police Department, played by Dan Brockett has one goal in life, to catch two rowdy motorcyclists played by Ernie Vigil and Nick “APEX” Brocha. Officer Dan is equipped with more than your average PD vehicle. This 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was made to chase down the baddest drift cyclists around. The Drift 2 video takes place on windy road where you get some awesome shots of the chase ensuing (see below). This is where Officer Dan really made a name for himself. He was brought on for Drift 3 and now the Drift 4 video.

Although he loves the law, he also has a passion for drift, which is why he’s decided to pursue a career in Formula D and we are lucky enough to supply him with some bad ass custom seats! We are excited to welcome Dan Brockett, and his team, to the Status family. Keep an eye out for what he does in Long Beach on April 4-5. If you want to keep up with him and all his crazy escapades, check out his site here. We will be posting updates and behind the scenes info about the upcoming Drift 4 video, so stay tuned!

Here is Drift 2 and 3 with some other pictures of Officer Dan on, and off duty.

2014 STi Hatchback with Varis Widebody Kit and Status Seats

Christmas came early with this customer’s car. He has a super wide, super sexy 2011 Subaru Sti hatchback. The inside has an aggressive color scheme with black and red accents, while the outside is a sophisticated white with gold and carbon accents. What better way to make your interior as custom as your exterior, but with a set of custom seats that match you interior exactly?

The car is getting a lot of attention not only because the way it looks but more about what brand made it look that way. This subie lover is rocking the highly sought after Varis Widebody kit. Of course this veteran tuner didn’t stop at the widebody kit. He topped it off with a sexy set of gold wheels and other carbon fiber parts to make the look complete. Beyond the external, he also upgrades his performance with some of the best names in the industry, like COBB and Perrin. This guy is a true tuner and we are pumped to have him repping our seats.

The photos by Daniel Olivares of TT Productions,  really captures the quality of materials used in each Status Seat. He’s rocking a set of all leather Status Racing Ring GT-X seats with FRP backing. In one picture in particular, you can see the detail in the leather and the red stitching. It really shows off the quality and detail that we include in every, Status Racing seat we produce. He upgraded to the icon seat with the two-toned Status logo in the headrest. The White makes the STATUS pop more, and the Red keeps with the color scheme of the interior. To finish off the look, he went with a set of all black Status Racing Harnesses.

Create your own custom seat with our Status Racing Seat Configurator. Enjoy these pictures and let us know what you think of the build in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
