PRP Seats (KAMM Industries) Acquires Status Racing

Temecula, CA and Phoenix, AZ – December 5, 2016 – PRP Seats, a leading manufacturer and distributor of custom seats, harnesses, and accessories for off-road vehicles, announced they have recently acquired Status Racing, LLC; manufacturer of custom composite race seats and accessories for the street and racing market. Status Racing will remain a distinctive brand with all operations moving to the PRP Seats headquarters in Temecula, California.

Although differing in their target markets, the two companies share a similar business model; offering american built, customizable seating options.

“We’re excited to take on this challenge and new market with Status Racing,” said Aaron Wedeking, PRP Seats’ founder and president. “We have a great process to create custom seats which will enable us to manufacture and ship Status seats in just a few weeks. That production will be paused temporarily while we move the necessary assets to our Temecula location. Our goal is to resume manufacturing in mid to late January. Once that happens, PRP Seats will continue to focus on developing and manufacturing products Built for Off-Road, while Status Racing will continue to offer the street car market a one-of-a-kind customizable seat, and quality accessories for their projects.”

PRP Seats has been manufacturing customized seats and accessories in Temecula, CA since 1997. Focused on off-road solutions, PRP has become one of the top manufacturers in the world for aftermarket UTV suspension seats and accessories. The company also manufactures and distributes a wide selection of pre-runner and Jeep accessories such as harnesses, bags, and limit straps.

Founded in 2004, Status Racing brought a new level of style and function to the performance seat market with a full line of composite racing seats. Like PRP, Status was first in their industry to offer customizable seats allowing the customer to choose their seat’s material, stitching, logo color, center cushion, and backing. Status also offers 4pt, 5pt, and 6pt harness kits which are FIA approved 3inch with rotary buckle. Available in red, black, blue, or gray, the harness kits come with necessary eye bolts for a simple installation with the clip in design.

JP Performance heads out to Miami, Florida to take a look at Maria Gaston’s aka @Maril_lala modified Mitsubishi EVO VIII. She is more of a gear head than most guys in the scene and actually built the car herself!

Check out the video below and make sure to go follow @Maril_lala on instagram.

Would you Rock these Candy Carbon Status Racing Seats!?

Candy Status Racing Seat Color Carbon Shell

Here at Status Racing we have been giving our customers the ability to fully personalize their Status Racing seats through our Icon configurator. This has allowed them to build a seat that fits their personal style and vehicle. While we’ve had the ability to change the type of carbon fiber, the shells were limited on color options such as red carbon, blue carbon and yellow Kevlar. These limited choices have led us to experiment with some new exciting candy finishes and we want to know what you think.

Which color is your favorite and would you like to see this option become a reality?

Rossion Supercars Chooses Status Racing for Competition

A long time ago I was cruising a highway in Spain when 2 Noble M400’s zipped past me on the Gumball 3000 event.  Ever since then, I wanted a Noble.  Well I picked up a Noble M400 last year and it sure was a blast.  But the M400 or M12 GTO was very kit car like and its successor the M15, was not available in the USA.  Well now here in the states, a company by the name of Rossion owns the rights to these cars and has been proving that the mid engine machine is no kit car at all.  What once was a frame built in the UK, a body formed in South Africa, combined with a Ford engine is now a very refined machine known as the Rossion Q1.

The Rossion Q1R Track is a competition version of their street machine featuring a 2.0L single turbocharged Ecoboost engine that makes 323hp and 305ft/lbs of torque.  However for those wanting more power, they can opt for the 3.0L Duratec engine that gives you a blistering 500hp and 500ft/lbs of torque.  Complete with aerodynamic upgrades, a full roll cage, fire suppression system, the Q1R is the ultimate track machine.  So the guys at Rossion decided to try out a better, American made seat, known as the Status Racing Ring GT-X.  The FIA approved seat fits all the needs of safety for this competition car.  Included with the seats is a pair of FIA approved 6 point harnesses.

We are very happy to see the Status Racing FIA approved seat in true race car and cant wait to get more updates and pictures from the Rossion team.  Read more about Rossion Cars here and view all our Status Racing FIA Approved Seats here.

New Status Racing Cloth Seat

Our standard cloth seats have been the cornerstone for Status Racing. It is our most popular seat out of all the options. With any company we are constantly trying to upgrade our product and make it the best it can be.

We’re excited to announce the release of our new 2014 Cloth seat. The material is more durable and easier to clean. After talking to Status Racing customers and using the seats ourselves, something that could withstand the daily use of getting in and out was necessary. This canvas-like material also gives a richer look to the seats. Although the cloth look stellar in most cars, at the end of the day, the cloth was not the ideal fabric to have for daily drivers. This new cloth gives you a high-class look with long lasting durability.

If you’re interested in purchasing a new cloth seat please email sales@vividracing.com or find a Status dealer near you. Check out pictures of the new cloth seat and let us know what you think. You can tell us in the comment section below or on Facebook or Instagram. See full gallery here.

Double Diamond Design Pioneered by our Customer

Our G37 customer is starting  a new Status trend. Similar to the double diamond complexity on a ski slope, our double diamond stitch seats are also upping their style complexity. It makes us think what the next Status pioneer will come up with.   He went with our luxurious Status Racing Spa Reclinable seats. The black suede makes your interior opulent, but then you add the double-diamond stitching and this thing makes a statement where ever it goes.

We always say it, but we’ll say it again. We CUSTOM make seats. Our people in Washington custom make every seat that is ordered. If you have a style design, color scheme, certain fabric type, we will work with you to create the seats of your dreams. We will post pictures of the seats once they are installed. Until then, tell us what you think of our very first ever double-diamond stitched Status seats.

Status Represents at Back-to-Back Events

This past weekend was an awesome experience. We met so many people from all different backgrounds and were able to show them the Status brand and why it is different than other seat brands out there. Some people we spoke with were unfamiliar with the industry but thought that the idea of buying a whole new set of seats was kind of crazy. Then we talked with other people who had heard of the brand but had never seen the product in person. Across the board, we were excited to get the Status brand in front of people at the Xtreme Xperience event with Vivid Racing. As well as, the grand opening of Murica Motorsports.

The Vivid Racing Meet Up and Xtreme Xperience Track day was awesome. Getting outside on a Saturday to watch people’s dreams of tracking a supercar come true was awesome. The meet up was great because we got to see local people come out and represent their build, but also meet people who aren’t as familiar with the car scene. After representing at the Xtreme Xperience event we packed up and headed over to the grand opening of Murica Motorsports.

The guys who started Murica Motorsports have been in the local car scene for a while, so we knew this event was going to be packed with custom rides. They didn’t disappoint! We don’t just like them because of their connect with the local car scene. We like them for their grass-root foundation. Like us, they are taking a relational approach to business. Building up a name through relationships with customers and selling a product that is backed by quality and integrity. Congrats to Murica, we are excited to work with you in the future.

Below are a mix of pictures from Xtreme Xperience and the Murica Motorsports event. Check out all the supercars that were out at the Xtreme Xperience event HERE. Check out all the photo from the Murica event HERE. If you were at either event and got pictures in our seats be sure to tag us in them #statusracing.
