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.
The rain Gods again caused mischief at qualifying for the latest round of the British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park, with poor weather and red flags dominating proceedings.
Not that “Cobra driver” Colin Turkington seemed to mind: Despite losing a lap time for exceeding track limits, Colin was still able to register the fastest time and take the 18th pole of his career by a whopping 0.6 of a second, although incredibly it was Turk’s first pole for two years!
Congratulations to “Cobra drivers” Andrew Jordan and Rory Butcher
The 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship kicked off at Brands Hatch with “Cobra drivers”, Andrew Jordan and Rory Butcher both claiming top step on the podium and BMW and Honda ending the day sharing the lead in the Manufacturers Championship.
In a brand new challenge, TV personality and racing driver Guy Martin has completely remodelled his beloved Transit van to take on one of the world’s most iconic speed records – and he chose one of the world’s most iconic racing seats to help him do it!
As the dust settles on another fantastic British Touring Car Championship season that has seen more race winners than ever before, there’s at least one consistent factor that links all of the champions in every category – they all use Cobra seats.
While Colin Turkington rightly grabbed the headlines and the "big one" at Brands Hatch it was also a special day for Cobra's great friends at Halford's Yuasa Racing - with Dan Cammish capping his first BTCC campaign with not just his maiden victory, but a second one to boot!
