British rider Danny Webb has had an up-and-down year with the De Graaf Aprilia team in the 125 class this season, despite the team having leased a factory-spec RSA 125 for the Briton. But he has made an impression, and his tenacity has been rewarded with a two-year contract with the Jack&Jones WRB team.
The WRB team have done extremely well in 2009, with their current rider Nicolas Terol 3rd in the 125 World Championship, and contending for the title for much of the season. In the press release, Webb expressed his hope that the two-year project would allow him to grow gradually towards challenging for the championship. "I hope for a good season next year, and to run with the front group for most of the season, I hope to be running at the front every race. In 2011, I hope to follow the same upward line, fighting for podiums in every race of the championship."
