WRP Wepol Racing Team Manager James Toseland outlines his goals after Danny Webb’s strong MotorLand Aragon performances

After making its FIM Supersport World Championship debut in the 2020 season, after being started in December, the James Toseland-run WRP Wepol Racing brought in Danny Webb to compete for the team. The season started strongly with a top ten finish, taking advantage of disqualifications further up the grid, with the team continuing to make progress.

After the season restarted at Jerez, Webb was close to securing top ten results on pace alone while a mixed weekend at Portimao was followed by a strong MotorLand Aragon weekend for the Prosecco DOC Aragon Round with two ninth place finishes. The strong performances continued into the Pirelli Teruel Round, at the same circuit, with a season-best eighth in Race 1 and another top ten finish in Race 2.

Reacting to recent results and outlining his goals for 2020, Toseland (WRP Wepol Racing Team Manager) said: “We started this small team only in December and to finish inside the top ten of a World Championship event, at our first race in Australia, was amazing. It was because of the disqualifications of the MVs that promoted us up into the top ten at the Australia race but in the past two rounds here in Aragon we are there through our own merit. 

“It has been a lot of hard work from Danny Webb and the team to be so competitive after such a short time and we are looking to finish inside the top six before the season ends in Portugal. 

It’s been a pleasure to manage such a hardworking, professional team. There are so many variables that need to fall into place when it comes to racing motorcycles at the highest level and I want to thank everyone involved who has worked so hard in making sure all of these are carefully managed to be successful.”
