For over 40 years Cobra Seats has been manufacturing exclusively in the United Kingdom, earning a reputation that unites innovative technology, quality of design and functional elegance.
It’s a reputation built on passion. In the 1960’s Len Dunsford was acknowledged as one of the country’s best vehicle trimmers – his work graced racing cockpits used by names like Moss, McQueen and Clark.
Nowadays modern heroes place their trust in Cobra’s ability to combine the very highest safety standards with weight saving technology… and Cobra is still a family run company – grandson Mark, who is Managing Director, shares his father’s and grandfather’s “hands on” passion for the art of building the finest seats and car interiors.KEEP IN TOUCH BY SIGNING UP TO OUR NEWSLETTER
Rory Butcher had a weekend to remember at the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship meeting at Silverstone, topping both free practice sessions and qualifying on Saturday, before going on to win the first two races on Sunday.
Colin Turkington’s luck finally changed when he was drawn on pole for the reverse-grid finale at Croft, and he duly fended off Gordon Shedden to claim his 13th BTCC victory at Croft and move him up to third in the points table.
The sixth round of the BTCC series took us back to Thruxton for the second time this season – and the action provides the perfect opportunity to focus on another team that puts its faith in Cobra Seats.
Few teams in the Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship have made as much impact in such a short space of time as BTC Racing, the squad earning its place over the last two years as one of the race team premier entries in the UK’s biggest and best motor racing category.
This season, probably more so than any season we can remember, drivers using Cobra seats seem to be sharing podium positions around: We’re halfway through the season and no fewer than 12 drivers using Cobra seats have shared 31 of the 45 podium positions that have been up for grabs – and perhaps even more remarkably, seven different drivers using Cobra seats have, between them, won 12 of the 15 races so far!
Yet again, drivers using Cobra seats captured most of the podium places at this, the British Touring Car Championship’s fifth meeting of the season – claiming no fewer than two clean sweeps.
