Cobra Seats' expertise in developing technically ground-breaking products, combined with their traditional skills as vehicle trimmers has made them the first port of call for specialist military projects.
The company has a proven track record in the development and application of technical high-performance textiles such as meta-aramid woven fabrics, silica and glass woven fabrics and Hypalon/Neoprene high performance coatings. Such fabrics can be found in many military applications from internal soundproofing and seating to engine bay heat insulation.
Cobra has NATO Supply Numbers (NSN) approved for many items and will be able to quote for almost any textile based military products, in fact anything from a maintenance wing cover for an F16 fighter jet to a full engine bay insulation kit for a Stormer armoured vehicle.
Away from textiles, Cobra has developed a method of incorporating non-carcinogenic insulation board for the engine bays of military vehicles. These are cut and supplied to many different specific formats.
“Cobra drivers” enjoy a great day at Thruxton.
A huge crowd at Britain’s fastest circuit enjoying the spring weather witnessed a great weekend for drivers using Cobra seats as Thruxton played host to Rounds 7, 8 and 9 of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The best attended Saturday practice this century witnessed a fascinating battle for pole, with Sam Tordoff nudging Dan Cammish into second on the grid, with Andrew Jordan (fully recovered from that horrendous side impact last time out) in third and Colin Turkington in fourth.
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.
