Cobra Seats: Sitting Pretty at the Pinnacle of BTCC
It wasn’t only Gordon Shedden who was celebrating after he dramatically seized his third BTCC Drivers Championship in the very last race of the season at Brands Hatch: For Cobra Seats it marked the culmination of a dizzying five years which has seen the Telford based company take the country’s most prestigious and well supported race series by storm.
In the five years since Cobra first supplied seats to teams in the BTCC, drivers using Cobra Seats have won the drivers championship on no fewer than four occasions.
This season, Cobra’s statistics are truly spectacular:
- The top two drivers in the championship (Shedden and Sam Tordoff) and four of the top six drivers all use Cobra seats.
- The top two manufacturers (West Surrey Racing and Team Dynamics Honda) both use Cobra seats – infact three of the four factory teams choose to use Cobra.
- The top two teams (and three of the top five) in the Team Championship use Cobra
- The top four drivers in the Jack Sears Trophy standings all use Cobra seats.
It is a fitting culmination to a season which witnessed almost two thirds of the BTCC teams choose Cobra Seats.
