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 statistics (almost) say it all: Drivers using Cobra seats took the top seven positions in qualifying, the top seven positions in Race 1, the top eight positions in Race 2 and the top six positions in Race 3.
… and if Colin Turkington’s double didn’t grab all the headlines, then controversy in Race 3 involving three more drivers using Cobra seats ensured that “The Cobra Boys” really did dominate the news reports from start to finish!
It was a great weekend at Croft with drivers in Cobra seats grabbing most of the headlines!
The precedent was set in a bizarre qualifying session which saw no fewer than five red flags and the session ending prematurely when an off for “Cobra driver” Andrew Jordan “promoted”, erm, Andrew Jordan to the front of the grid!
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.
