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
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.
BTCC: OULTON PARK
Here at Cobra we’re used to celebrating the success of drivers who put their trust in our seats. Our updates always try to provide a balanced view and cover the highlights of as many of “our” teams and drivers as possible … but for a change we thought you may like to see how just one team summed up their weekend at Oulton Park from their own perspective.
