With just six rounds of the 2018 BMW Motorrad Race Trophy series to run, including November’s Macau Grand Prix and just 43 points separating the present top four in the championship standings, it’s still anyone’s title.

For Tunbridge Wells Webb though, he’s in prime position at present to add what would be the cherry on top of the cake, from what’s been a quite stellar season, which has seen him jump up multiple levels on roads courses worldwide, and establish himself amongst International Road Racing’s leading next generation competitors.
