Steve Day is making the step up to lead commentator for World Superbikes on British Eurosport next season, alongside James Whitham.

Day - who raced with the likes of present WSBK stars Tom Sykes, Chaz Davies, Leon Haslam and Jonathan Rea back in 2000-2002 - takes over from Jack Burnicle, who will continue as the channel's BSB lead commentator.

"Bike racing is my life and has been for as long as I can remember. Both as a fan and as a commentator, I'm really excited to land this role in the World Superbike series for British Eurosport," said Day.
