Confirmed to jockey within the Junior, Bennetts Senior races, Norton machinery, he’s a most definite contender to acquire at minimum top five finishes, plus don’t be surprised if he scoops at least one rostrum finish.

Prior to his latest Classic TT venture, next weekend sees the ever improving Webb back on IRRC (International Road Racing Championship) duty with the Wepol Racing by Penz team at Belgium’s most famous roads course, Chimay.

Aiming to build upon a present championship lead of 45 points, he’s firmly on course to become the UK’s first ever IRRC series champion.
