MotoGP: Danny Webb happy with Aprilia switch

Published: 17 December 2007

British teenager Danny Webb has spoken of his delight at securing a switch to Aprilia machinery for his second 125GP world championship campaign in 2008.

Danny Webb extended his contract with the Dutch-based Molenaar squad last month, and his team will run Aprilia machinery in 2008, having split from Honda.

The former MotoGP Academy rider will be in a team with American Steve Bonsey and Dutch rider Hugo van den Berg.

“I am very glad with the switch to Aprilia and I think I can make a big step forward with this bike.

“The winter lasts too long for me though. I can’t wait for 2008 to start,” said Webb who will make his Aprilia debut in Jerez on January 24, 2007.
