For over 30 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.
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!
A charging double top ten finish in race three from Honda duo Matt Neal and Dan Cammish ensured a positive conclusion for Halfords Yuasa Racing at Silverstone during Rounds 25/26/27 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Silverstone, with Dan Cammish successfully securing the coveted Jack Sears Trophy in his rookie season.
For drivers in Cobra seats Knockhill was a weekend with more ups and downs than a kilt in a hurricane.
Practice day benefitted from lovely summer weather – and the sun certainly shone on Dan Cammish, in the Team Dynamics Honda Civic, who drove a barnstorming lap to claim his first ever pole for race one.
It wasn’t the best start for Cobra drivers at Rockingham: Dan Cammish had a promising qualifying session, starting third on the grid, but after contact between Dan and Sam Tordoff’s Ford at a fiercely contested first hairpin ironically it was Dan’s team mate (and Championship hopeful) Matt Neal who paid the price after he (and a number of others) ploughed in to the stationary Focus.
