Best Drift Seats for Race


Drifting is a high-energy motorsport that requires skill, precision, and, most importantly, the right equipment. The racing seat is one of the most critical components of any drift car.

Racing seats provide the driver with the support and control necessary to navigate sharp turns, drifts, and other high-speed maneuvers. Status Racing is a well-known name in the world of motorsports and is trusted by professional drifters and racers alike. We offer a range of high-quality, customizable racing seats that are designed to meet the needs of all types of drivers.

Lets take a closer look at some of the best status racing seats used for drifting.

Custom Race Seats for Drifting


The Circuit Racing Seat is famous among drifters due to its comfortable design and excellent support. The most significant difference to this seat is the lower side bolsters that taper off towards the front. So, the seat still holds you snugly while taking a hard corner but makes it easier to get in and out of the vehicle.

This ‘big boy’ seat has a broader hip area that comfortably fits drivers with up to a size 42″ waist. Other features include large harness slots that allow a fresh air hose to fit through and built-in lumbar support for extended trips or endurance races. 

Status Drift Seats for Race


The Grid Racing Seat is another excellent choice for drifting. This is our smallest composite seat that fits drivers with waist sizes up to 36″. The perfect solution for small, space-constrained vehicles.

The high sides of the Grid hold you snugly while taking a hard corner, with added foam padding in the center for extra rib support. Includes allow harnesses and even a fresh air hose to fit through. 

Racing Seats for Drift


The Turismo Racing Seat features a unique design and features that enhance the driving experience in motorsports, making it the ultimate choice for drifters. This composite seat mixes style and comfort with racing functionality.

The Turismo features thick dual-density foam all around and built-in lumbar support for added comfort. The large harness slots on the back allow you to fit the harness and a fresh air hose through at the same time. Wrap-around head containment prevents the driver’s head from jarring side to side on impact. This seat fits drivers with up to size 40″ waist comfortably.

  • Supportive Design

    Drifting involves extreme lateral G-forces that can throw a driver around the car’s cabin. The seat’s supportive design helps keep the driver in place during aggressive cornering, preventing them from sliding or bouncing around the seat. 


  • Lightweight Construction

    We use lightweight materials for our seats, which helps reduce the car’s overall weight. This reduction in weight translates to improved acceleration, braking, and overall performance, making it easier for the driver to execute the precise maneuvers needed in drifting.


  • Customizability

    Our seats are highly customizable! over 60+ different color and fabric options to choose from. Pick from material options like our Marine-Grade Vinyl for that luxury leather look or go with Suede for softer comfort and a sporty look. Choose from our extra add-on options, including diamond stitch, seat heaters, and adjustable air lumbar. The combinations are almost endless! 


  • Aesthetic Appeal

    The Status Racing seat is known for its sleek, race-inspired design. The seat’s appearance adds to the overall aesthetics of the car and can help give it a professional, high-performance look.
