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.
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.
