Status Racing Seats take on the Baja 500 with Team TireBlocks

Our friends over at team TireBlocks are no stranger when it comes to off-road racing and have built their 2014 RZR 1000 2-seater to take on the unforgiving Baja 500. The Baja 500 takes place in Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and demands the most from drivers willing to take on the challenge. They choose Status Racing to be the seat of choice for the fact that they’re lightweight and are able to mount low in the UTV providing a lower center of gravity. This gave them the advantage to hit corners harder and faster while keeping it on all four wheels and across the finish line!

Status Gets Dirty at the San Felipe 250

We wrote about a guy who was using our Status Racing Harnesses in the Mint 400 race the other day. We mentioned in that blog that it would be cool to see our seats in the off-road market. A couple days ago we got this email from one of our customers. He will be running his UTV in the Baja 500 in June. He needed a set of seats that could go as hard as his buggy does. These Ring GT-X ultra suede seats with FRP backing are just what this off-road junkie needs to keep him secure on his dare devil dirt runs.

Here’s what he reported back about the San Felipe 250 he recently finished.

“We had a great race and were in 2nd place when we blew a shock about 20 miles from the finish. Luckily it was right before our last pit and were able to get it changed bust lost a couple positions. We ended up fourth but had a good day. We are prepping the car and dialing it in for the next race (Imperial Valley 250 on April 26th).”

We are excited to see what this UTV does in the future in the off-road scene. Until then, here are some pictures he took at the San Felipe 250. If you have an off-road warrior that you need seats in hit us up sales@statusracing.com.
