Australian contender to pilot RSV4 RF this season.
Levi Day will contest the Superstock 1000 (STK1000) category in the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship (BSB) after landing a deal with In Competition Aprilia.
The South Australian, who previously challenged the Ducati TriOptions Cup finishing fifth overall with a number of race wins to his name, will pilot a RSV4 RF alongside Scotsman Lewis Rollo.
“I am extremely excited to be given this opportunity to race in Superstock 1000 for In Competition in 2019,” Day explained. “The Aprilia RSV4RF is an amazing bike and I am confident we have a great package, of bike and team, to have a successful year.
“I want to go out, enjoy my riding and work hard, and I believe everything will work well. I want to thank In Competition for the opportunity, as well as AJN Steelstock, for making this step up in class and believing in me.”
Team manager Ian Newton commented: “I am excited to have Levi and Lewis on board. Having worked with three previous Australian riders I know that they have a sense of purpose to travel half way round the world to achieve their dream in life. With the support from AJN Steelstock again for 2019 Levi is determined to be an established front-runner.”
Day has been back in Australia during the off-season, sampling the Aprilia RSV4 RF in a selection of coaching days that he has hosted. The first stop of the BSB STK1000 series is scheduled for 19-21 April at Silverstone.
