Danny Webb and World Wide Communication together in Moto3
Next season, World Wide Communication will line up one of the most promising and talented Moto3 riders: Danny Webb. WWC and the young Englishman agreed on a one-plus-one year contract, that will see Danny riding Fiorenzo Caponera's bikes, targeting a top position in the ultra-competitive class of the World Championship.
Danny Webb: “First of all, I want to thank Mahindra for all the support they have provided to me in the past two years. It is true to say that, if it were not for them, I would not be here. Secondly, I would also like to thank World Wide Communication for the trust and the investment they are making in me and my career. Today it is early days but I'm really looking forward to working with my new team”.
Fiorenzo Caponera (team owner): “I consulted this year's entry list quite a few times, asking myself who I wanted with my team for the future. Every time, the answer has always been the same – Danny was the man. And, while in recent years I was chosen by riders, this time I've been able to pick up precisely the one I believe is the right one to achieve the result we aim for”.
