Webb enjoys first outing on WRB machine

Webb enjoys first outing on WRB machine

The Jack & Jones sponsored WRB team gets its project for 2010 underway in Valencia, with British rider enjoying his first experience on the Aprilia 125cc bike.

The Ricardo Tormo Circuit provided the location for Danny Webb’s initiation on the Aprilia of the Jack & Jones team this week, as the youngster began the process of fine tuning the bike to his own requirements ahead of the new season.

The test proved a successful one for both rider and team, with Webb finding a very comfortable “feeling with the bike”, despite still carrying some after-effects of his crash in Malaysia.

Webb completed just 20 laps due to the slightly unfavourable conditions of the track, and the 18 year-old was pleased with how things went.

“I like how the team works a lot,” said Webb. “I believe in them and I think we have the best mechanics. I’ve gotten used to them very quickly and this is because they have a great attitude. With some more tests and some fine tuning of the bike, we know we can be fast.”
