Day, who previously covered WorldSBK for Eurosport before spending the last six years working in MotoGP for Dorna, will start a new chapter in his career during the Silverstone BSB season-opener on April 15.

“I was 12 when I attended my first British Superbike race at Donington Park in 1996 and my love for the sport started there," Day said.

"This is an exciting moment for me to be a part of a great show as the championship has been thoroughly entertaining to watch as a fan during the past few decades.

"I’m delighted to be working with the great team at Eurosport again too. I can’t wait to get started.”

Greg Haines will lead the commentary for the BSB support class races with Matt Roberts anchoring the coverage and Rachel Stringer reporting from the pitlane.

Six-time BSB champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne, two-time champion James Whitham and former MotoGP, World Superbike and British Superbike rider James Haydon will continue as expert pundits, with three-time title winner Niall Mackenzie also part of the presentation team.

Jamie Steward, senior director of Production & Broadcast at Discovery Sports UK, welcomed Day's arrival whilst also thanking Burnicle, who will continue to commentate on other two-wheel series.

“Steve is one of the most respected commentators in motorsport so we’re delighted to welcome him back to the Eurosport team," Steward said. “His wealth of knowledge will help expertly deliver all the twists and turns for which I’m sure will once again be a hugely exciting season.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jack Burnicle for his contribution and service to Eurosport’s British Superbike coverage over the years - without doubt he has helped make it what it is today. We’re delighted to have him part of our Motocross GP and World Endurance Championship programming this year.”
