COBRA SEATS SPONSOR THE BRSCC CLUBSPORT TROPHY
Cobra Seats are proud to sponsor the BRSCC ClubSport Trophy, a new multi-class format of production car racing which allows drivers to share race cars ranging from a Porsche Boxster to a Citroen C1 and everything in between a chance to dice it out on track together, in a manner that allows each and every car competing a true chance to be competitive and win their class.
Cobra Seats is aware that for many drivers, getting on track in a cost-effective and competitive nature can sometimes prove difficult, especially when looking for cars and series that allow a wide variety of marques and models to compete.
That's why Cobra Seats is proud to sponsor the BRSCC ClubSport Trophy.
The structure of the BRSCC ClubSport Trophy includes a 20 minute qualifying session followed by a 45 minute “mini-endurance” race, with a mandatory pitstop and two driver combinations encouraged. With an all-in entry fee per round of just £320.00 (including series registration and membership), that means a two-driver entry could share 65 minutes of track time for just £160.00 each!
For competitors already racing at the event in another BRSCC formula, there is a reduced entry fee of just £295.00
Cars are separated into one of five classes, all of which will be determined by a car’s power to weight ratio. This is perfect for any driver who races in any of the multitude of saloon, sports and production car based championships and series, with the majority of marques welcome on the grid. Not only is this ideal for anyone looking to ease their way into the sport using something as simple as a hatchback or small saloon car, but it can also set you up to climb further up the ladder to one of BRSCC's many popular one make championships.
On a day when drivers using Cobra seats claimed fastest lap in qualifying and then claimed all three victories with a double for Tom Ingram and a last race win for Stephen Jelley, it was the image of Jelley’s teammate Colin Turkington ploughing in to a “head on” collision with Dan Lloyd that will live in the memory.
If ever there was proof of the benefits of the years of experience and hours and hours of product development and rigorous testing that goes into every Cobra seat – and the vital importance of ensuring that a seat fits perfectly - it was the fact that Colin walked away complaining of nothing more than a sore neck.
Drivers using Cobra seats continued to take all the wins (and all the “seconds”) to continue a remarkable start to the season for the “Cobra boys” who have now claimed top step on the podium in all nine BTCC races so far in 2022.
Colin Turkington scored a remarkable British Touring Car Championship pole position as WSR BMWs qualified one-two-three on the grid for Team BMW and ROKiT MB Motorsport.
The result marked not only the first top-three lockout on the grid in WSR’s 41-year history, but also a milestone 25th career BTCC pole for Colin.
