Levi Day Joins IN Competition Aprilia in Superstock 1000

In Competition Aprilia have announced they will be running two Aprilia RSV4RF’s in the 2019 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship, with Australian Levi Day lining up alongside Scotsman Lewis Rollo.

Rollo and Day are familiar contenders having competed against each other in the 2018 Ducati TriOptions Cup, with podiums and race wins between them, ending their campaigns in second and fifth respectively.

Day said: “I am extremely excited to be given this opportunity to race in Superstock 1000 for In Competition in 2019. 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.”

Rollo said: “I feel honoured to have this opportunity to ride the Aprilia RSV4RF with such a great team.  I can’t wait to get started and see what 2019 brings for me and the team. I can’t thank In Competition enough for giving me this opportunity.  I am looking forward to working with the team and hope to prove myself well in the Stock 1000 class after having such a great season in 2018. I would also like to thank my sponsors for standing by me.”

In Competition’s 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.

“Lewis has come through the Aprilia 125 Superteen Championship where he was Superteen champion in 2012 and had wins in the Aprilia RRV450 Championship.  Lewis will be the youngest Superstock rider on the grid for 2019. Knowing Lewis for many years he has the passion and commitment to race motorcycles and can’t wait to get started.

“In 2018 the Aprilia RSV4RF was one of the top Superstock bikes to beat and we plan to continue going forward in 2019.”
