Danny Webb, one of the UK’s leading 125cc Grand Prix and Moto 3 contenders, will make his TT debut in June riding for Ryan Farquhar’s KMR Kawasaki team.
The Kent youngster will contest the Dainese Superbike, RL360º Superstock, bikesocial.co.uk Lightweight and PokerStars Senior TT Races and will benefit from the expert Mountain Course knowledge and support of KMR team manager and owner Farquhar.
The 22-year old has long been considered one of the countries brightest prospects, a claim supported by his seven years of Grand Prix level competition.
He achieved an impressive 20 top-ten finishes in the 125cc and Moto 3 divisions, arguably one of the most competitive classes in motorcycle racing.
Speaking about his TT debut, Danny commented:
‘I’m a big TT fan. I’ve already been to the event and I have always said that I wanted to do it one day. It’s something that has been going through my mind more and more of late and the opportunity came along to work with Ryan Farquhar who puts out some of the best bikes on the grid, so I simply couldn’t say no.’
‘It’s going to be a big change for me after years in the Grand Prix paddock, but it is something I am really looking forward to. I don’t see this being a one off thing either and I know it will take me many years to really learn my way around but for now I just can’t wait to get out there and make my debut.’
