Danny Webb will continue to compete with the James Toseland-managed WRP Wepol Racing team in the WorldSSP Championship for 2021, it has been confirmed.

A former Moto2 and Moto3 GP racer, Webb initially turned his back on short circuit racing in favour of devoting his time to road racing before embarking on a comeback in the WorldSSP Championship with WRP Wepol.

The Czech-based team has been Webb’s backer on the road racing scene for some time and while 2020 marked its WorldSSP debut, it came after podium winning seasons in the World Endurance Championship.

To reflect this it called upon two-time WorldSBK Champion Toseland to head up its WorldSSP effort and nurture Webb, an endeavour that yielded promising results with nine top ten finishes from 13 races en route to 11th overall.

Riding the Yamaha R6 once again in 2021, Webb will be keen to use his maiden season as a springboard into a more successful sophomore campaign.

“Really happy to be staying with the team in 2021! Looking forward to having a successful season and looking forward to having a young team mate!!”, he wrote on Twitter, the latter comment referencing Petr Svoboda who will race with the team in the WorldSSP 300 category.

Webb is the first British rider to be confirmed to the 2021 WorldSSP grid, where he will be looking to become the first UK rider to win a WorldSSP race since Kyle Smith back in 2016
