SPEEDWAY: BIRMINGHAM have unveiled a new club crest ahead of the club’s 2018 campaign.
Next year will mark the 90th anniversary since a speedway meeting first took place in the second city.
And new Brummies promoter David Mason and commercial manager Lee Kilby have already started to ring the changes at Perry Barr.
David said: “It’s like anything new you get your hands on, you want to make it your own and add those little touches.
“I love the new club badge as it incorporates and epitomises everything about how me and dad (Peter) will mould and shape the club in the future.
“I asked Lee (Kilby) to look into this for me and he designed the badge himself and has done a great job.”
Having only been at the club for a number of months, designing and commissioning a new badge had Kilby feeling somewhat nervous.
“Yes of course I was slightly nervous,” Kilby admitted.
“You’re effectively changing something that means a heck of a lot to a very large number of people.
“It was a challenge, but I have to say we wouldn’t have changed anything for the sake of it.
“We only intended to make a change if it felt right. And this does.
“The outgoing badge was nice, but David wanted something new and something to take the club forward. I’m very proud of what I’ve come up with and my affection for this club is growing by the day. I hope the Brummies fans like the badge too.”
