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
Congratulations to Tom Ingram who claimed the BTCC Drivers Championship in the very last race of the season at Brands Hatch.
Tom joins Matt Neal, Andrew Jordan, Gordon Shedden and Colin Turkington as drivers who have chosen Cobra Seats and won the BTCC Drivers Championship.
That means that drivers using Cobra seats have won no fewer than nine of the last twelve BTCC Driver's Championships.
As part of Cobra Seats commitment to environmental sustainability we are installing solar panels at our manufacturing base in Telford UK .
Race three saw Josh Cook claim his tenth BTCC career victory at Thruxton.
However, frustration in race one and disappointment in race two probably means that Josh Cook has too much ground to make up to make a play for the Drivers’ Championship. Meanwhile, Colin Turkington’s second place in race three gives him a six-point lead ahead of Ash Sutton in the driver’s rankings with just six races to go and Tom Ingram only trails Colin by 18 points. While Jake Hill’s Championship chances were dented when his ROKiT MB Motorsport BMW ran onto the grass during the opening lap of race three, leaving him to settle for 12th position, Jake is also still very much in the mix just 23 points off top spot.
At Cobra we’re proud that so many of the top drivers in the British Touring Car Championship use our seats – and try to mention as many as possible in our updates, but occasionally history dictates that we turn the spotlight on one driver in particular.
Our relationship with West Surrey Racing and Colin Turkington goes back well over a decade and has seen Cobra Seats play its part in WSR winning a hatful of Teams and Manufacturers Championships and Colin claiming the Driver’s Championship on no fewer than four occasions.
So we were very aware that the third race at Snetterton would be Colin’s 500th start in a BTCC race – and not at all surprised that he marked the milestone with a pole grabbing drive in qualifying followed by a win-double in the first two races of the day – the 62nd and 63rd times that he has claimed the top podium in his BTCC career, pushing his season’s points total so far to a field heading 282 points.
