For over 40 years Cobra has led the way in the design and manufacture of automotive seats.
Cobra has been at the forefront of technological developments that have helped to raise the standard of safety in motorsport worldwide.
It consistently has to meet the most stringent FIA standards to ensure that the thousands of drivers who rely on the integrity of Cobra Seats can have total peace of mind.
If Cobra’s reputation for excellence is due, in no small part, to the consistently high standards of its engineering, it is equally renowned for its innovation: A quality that has enabled the Company to apply its principles to sectors as diverse as marine, aerospace and defence.
The very best machinery is nothing without the know-how to use it to its best advantage.
That’s why Cobra doesn’t simply supply engineering services – we provide engineering solutions.
Cobra has a thirst for knowledge and a development team that scours the globe for the latest technological developments.
It has resulted in Cobra using the most up-to-date 3D modelling software to achieve stunningly detailed tooling.
Pioneering techniques in Carbon Fibre SMC technology that has led to some of the automotive world’s most prestigious marques beating a path to its door.
And inventing a suspension seat that is so revolutionary it has made industry experts re-visit the very assumptions that have been a cornerstone of kinetic energy management.
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.
