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.

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.

NSX Finalizes Custom Interior with a Set of Custom Racing Seats

The NSX is one of those cars that you’d swear Status Racing Seats were made for. They fit perfect and look awesome. You can’t miss this fire red NSX on the streets, so of course he had to customize his seats to match the cars exterior personality. The interior already has red and carbon accents in it, so he needed a seat that complimented the already custom interior. He went with two Ring GT seats. The Ring GT seats allow you and your passenger to ride in comfort and style, while still feeling secure when rounding those tight corners. His Ring GT’s are decked out with black leather and red stitching on the body and black ultra suede in the middle section. Then to finish his carbon interior look he went with the carbon fiber shell.

The Ring GT is made for people with a 34 inch waist. The waist sizes that we give are a general guideline. We can’t take into account what the person is using the seats for, or how snug they like to feel while driving. For example, a person who will be tracking their car might be a 34 inch waist but want to rock a set of standard ring seats because he needs to feel secure, and in control, while on the track. On the other hand a guy who has a 32 inch waist could get our Status Racing Ring GT-X or Status Racing Spa seat. He might just use his car for daily use and or shows and wants to be as comfortable as possible.
