Day made his debut in the Superstock 1000 class back in 2019 and ended that campaign as the top rookie. He finished ninth overall with a best result of sixth at Donington Park.
"I’m really stoked to be riding for Powerslide Motorcycles - AJN Steelstock in Superstock 1000 in 2021," Day said. "I was top rookie in the class in 2019 with ninth overall and it’s great to be back in that class for next season. It’s a super competitive class with such a depth of talent that it brings out the best in me as a rider.
“I owe a big thank you to Brad and Dale from Powerslide Motorcycles for the opportunity. Also, to my major sponsor AJN Steelstock and my other personal sponsors for putting all the plans together and making it possible. I’m forever grateful for the people who support me to allow me to chase my dreams!"
Day will compete on the Suzuki GSX-R1000 next season. The Powerslide Motorcycles team will also be present in the Superbike class next year with Bjorn Estment.
“I am massively happy to have Levi on board for 2020," team owner Brad Clarke added. "We had spoken to a few people, but both myself and Dale got a good vibe with Levi and believe he can definitely shake up the class, get some great results and I also feel that he and Bjorn will work well with each other.
"The field is massively competitive but with Levi on board the GSX-R1000 and the support network that we have, I feel he can be massively competitive."
