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.
Of course, at Cobra Seats we support BTCC drivers who use our seats (and let’s face it, we have a lot of drivers to cheer – well over half the BTCC drivers this year chose to use our seats), but that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate the success of drivers who haven’t (yet!) chosen Cobra Seats.
A collaboration between BTCC, Cobra Seats and Schroth has resulted in the development of a seat net that “squares the circle” of providing optimum geometry in the car and optimum safety when needed most.
It may have featured an experimental qualifying format, but the cream of this year’s BTCC Championship still rose to the top.
As the BTCC Championship moved on to Croft in this condensed – and fascinating - BTCC season, the Championship is still wide open, with Cobra drivers Colin Turkington, Dan Cammish, Tom Ingram and Tom Oliphant still very much in contention.
And it was Colin Turkington who was probably looking forward to the day more than anyone – he’s won at Croft on no fewer than twelve occasions and he holds the lap record to boot!
Honda driver Dan Cammish enjoyed the strongest weekend of his British Touring Car Championship career at Silverstone, with a trio of top-four finishes, including a win, sending him and Honda rocketing up the points table.
