Speedway boss Graham Drury described Birmingham’s national speedway title glory as the best of his career.
Drury saw his Perry Barr quartet romp to victory in the Premier League Four Team Tournament at Peterborough – the third time he has won the event and each time in charge of a different club.
He lifted the title with Long Eaton Invaders in 1997, then with the Workington Comets and now with the BRC Roofing Brummies.
“This means more than the other wins, with all due respect to our friends at Long Eaton and Workington,” said Drury.
It was a solid all-round team performance from Drury’s men who took the crown with 25 points in the Grand Final, six clear of Edinburgh’s 19.
Somerset finished a gallant third on 15 with Sheffield fourth on 13.
The Brummies had earlier negotiated their semi-final coming out on top with a 14-point total with Sheffield also joining them in the Grand Final.
Somerset and Edinburgh progressed from the other semi-final group.
The final turned out to be a straight shoot-out between Birmingham and Edinburgh and the two teams were locked together on 11 points after six races had been completed.
Richard Sweetman then tasted victory in heats 8 and 9, which was immediately followed by an Aaron Summers win over Andrew Tully in heat 10.
This gave the Brummies a crucial four-point lead over the Monarchs with just two races to go.
The silverware was then confirmed when Steve Johnston passed Kalle Katajisto for third place in the penultimate race.
