Motorpoint has extended its title sponsorship of the British Supersport Championship into the 2014 season, when a new EVO class will be added - aimed at allowing riders from the junior categories to make the transition into the middleweight class more easily.

All 24 races will also be televised live by British Eurosport, with series promoter MSVR confirming an extension of the event TV broadcasts.

Series director Stuart Higgs stated: "We're proud that Motorpoint has extended its partnership with us for 2014. The calibre of riders and teams in this year's Motorpoint British Supersport Championship remains at an all-time high and together with the extended television coverage and new Supersport EVO technical regulations we are tremendously excited about the upcoming season."
