SWINDON Robins will ride in orange with a red, white and black trim on their kevlars next season, Adver sport can confirm.

The news was revealed by Robins co-promoter Lee Kilby after CFS Filtration announced it had renewed its title sponsorship deal with the club, which has been in place since 2018.

Derek and Val Baker, of CFS Filtration, have been strong supporters of the sport in recent years.

In addition to their individual rider sponsorship commitments, the pair have backed the British Youth Championship and development league side Isle of Wight.

Kilby, who amid Robins’ bid to land the SGB Premiership and Supporters’ Cup titles introduced orange and white scarves to the club’s merchandise stall, was understandably thrilled to welcome CFS back for a third season at the Abbey.

With chairman Terry Russell making no secret of his desire to depart the club in the not too distant future, Kilby confirmed both he and team manager Alun Rossiter have been applying some additional elbow grease to the club’s off-track appeal.

He told the Adver: “Myself and Rosco (Alun Rossiter) really want to kick on this season and take the reins a little bit more ourselves. That’s with a view to taking over from Terry (Russell, chairman) in a couple of years’ time.

“CFS completely loves speedway, but they have openly said that their involvement in the sport has done them the world of good.

“Their logo placement has been here there and everywhere – they’re in magazines and on TV too. We’ve got a great relationship with them, and we’re chuffed to have them back.

“I thought we looked terrific on track in orange last year, so the same colour scheme will be adopted.”

Derek Baker, of CFS, echoed Kilby’s comments and encouragingly confirmed the company’s relationship with the club is yet to hit top gear.

He added: “Our relationship with the club has done more to promote CFS than we could imagine. Working with Lee Kilby and the team has been an absolute joy.

“We feel there are two types of sponsor – those who put cash in and expect a return for no input, or those that put cash in and work with the club to gain the most they can.

“We fall into the second class. Speedway and bikes are in our blood.

“This will be our third year with Swindon, and we are still accelerating – we haven’t yet hit top speed.

“Val (Baker) and I still have many ideas to help the club continue to move forward. The team looks great, and we’re really looking forward to the season.”

Meeting sponsorship and rider of the night sponsorship includes entrance, programmes, a pre-meeting pit walk, centre green experience and a two-course meal in the Legends Lounge.

Advertising on air fence panels, centre green banners and in the programme are also available.
