Cobra's commitment to continuous product development has taken its seats to the very pinnacle of motorsport.
But to create its new generation of seats, Cobra's development team decided to make a quantum leap and redesign its complete range of motorsport seats from the ground up - using the same technology that drives Formula One composite design.
Cobra Seats has digitally created a completely new range of patterns for their seats using the latest automotive industry ergonomics. Cobra undertook extensive development testing before using state of the art machines to produce composite seat shells manufactured with CNC pin-point accuracy and with perfect lines of symmetry.
It's a technological advance that also means a complete new style for the back of the seats which are now flame surfaced for extra rigidity.
Statistics show that, on average, the human race is getting taller and bigger. Inevitably this trend is reflected in the size of drivers - so Cobra used ergonomics and the latest technology to digitally create the 'modern' racing driver.
It proved that Cobra Seats needed to accommodate a greater range of heights and width combinations than ever before.
The new technology means that Cobra has seemingly achieved the impossible, creating seats with 15% more internal room without changing the external dimensions of their seats.
Combined with their revolutionary Pro-Fit system, Cobra's new generation motorsport seats now provide the PERFECT FIT for over 95% of all race drivers.
The legendary Sebring Pro and Evolution Pro seats are available in standard and GT width and are now taller' as standard, with an optional removable rigid base profile - meaning that side head restraints will always be in optimum position no matter what the size of the driver.
The Suzuka Pro and Imola Pro models are available in standard, GT and bespoke non-homologated 'Extra Tall' versions.
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.
