Webb signs with WRB for two years

Teenage English 125cc rider Danny Webb has signed with the Jack & Jones team for the next two years.

There was great news for young English rider Danny Webb this weekend at the Gran Premio Generali de la Comunitat Valenciana, when it was announced that he has signed for the Jack & Jones sponsored WRB team for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Webb will hope to realise his potential with the successful Jack & Jones team, having has an inconsistent season this year with Degraaf Grand Prix in his third full season in the World Championship. The Jack & Jones team currently have Grand Prix winner Nico Terol sitting third in the 125cc rankings and Simone Corsi was the 125cc World Championship runner-up on their machinery last year.

“I am really excited as this is one of the top teams in the 125cc class, so I can’t wait to start testing and to start bonding with the team,” stated Webb. “Hopefully I can get results like Nico has done and maybe even better and try for the World Championship. Next year I will still be getting used to the team, but hopefully the year after I can really challenge.”

Javier Sabio, Team Manager for Jack & Jones, added, “We decided to sign Danny because of the enormous enthusiasm he showed about joining us and the obvious natural riding talent he possesses. We believe that with plenty of hard work and with a long term strategy in mind, we will get the results we want.”
