More Weekend Racers can be FIA Approved

All medium-husky weekend racers can now celebrate! We are excited to announce that our STÄTUS Ring GT-X with the carbon fiber backing has been FIA approved. Until now, we could only offer one type of STATUS seat to those looking for an FIA approved racing seat. The first seat to get approved was our STATUS Ring seat with FRP backing. One of the best parts about STÄTUS seats is the customization opportunities. Each seat is made to order, so it can be tailored to fit any unique or outlandish interiors. STATUS is perpetually inspired by those who push the creative limits with their interior. Now we have something else to offer those who want to be creative and have an FIA approved seat.

The Ring GT-X normally fits a 36 inch waists; however, we have seen people with 32 inch say they barely fit and people with 38 say it fits perfectly. It is all about how you like your fitment.  We do intend to move forward and get other STATUS seats approved, but the approval process takes time and money. In addition to two FIA Approved seats, we also offer 5 and 6pt harnesses that are FIA approved. Get the perfect setup for your ride by using our online seat configurator. We pioneered the configurator to help people to see, share and order, the exact seats they want. We also have a new program that will get a free pair of Status Ring seats in your car without paying a dime.

Here are some videos and picture of the seats being tested. If you have questions about the GT-X or any of our other seats email us at or find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

(NOTE: The FIA approval is only for GT-X with the regular carbon fiber backing and does not include the color or WASP (hexagonal) carbon.)
