A Bullet Bill Speed Trial poster

Bullet Bill Speed Trial is a sponsor that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which makes a cameo appearance in some of the promotional material for Nintendo's collaboration with Kansai International Airport. The company presumably either runs or times the Time Trials that can be played in the game, and is apparently run by Bullet Bills. The logo of the company consists of the company's name written in a simple slanted beige-colored font on a red background, below a simplified image of a Bullet Bill on a navy blue background, in the same beige color. These rectangles are separated by a beige line. However, on the trackside banner variant, all of the writing and imagery appears in the blue rectangle, with just a thin red one underneath. The sticker variant retains the design from the trackside banners, but without the beige dividing line, and a smaller red line at the bottom. It is advertised by means of trackside banners, signs, cans, stickers, posters, appears on a varnish and is also referenced on a map.
