FIA Approved

FIA approval is what signifies the difference between a quality safety seat and a generic product. Status Racing wanted to ensure that the drivers sitting in select Status products felt safe, so our engineering team went for the best certification you could get. On May 15, 2009, the Status Racing Ring (aka Laguna) seat in FRP was granted FIA approval in accordance to FIA 8855-1999 standard. Our racing harness kits were also approved in accordance with FIA 8853/98 standards. Below we have attached testing videos of our products. If you need any additional documentation, please contact our customer service department.

FIA Approved: Status Ring FRP (May 2009) and Ring Kevlar (May 2007) Seats, Status Racing Harness 5pt and 6pt kits ONLY.
