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.
