Webb personalises his Mini Cooper

Young British motorbike racer Danny Webb has celebrated passing his driving test by getting a personalised number plate for his Mini Cooper.

Motorcycle News reports that the 17-year-old is now legally able to hit the road on four wheels rather than the two that he is accustomed to.

He races for the DeGraaf Aprilia team in the 125GP world championship and for the team he uses the race number 99.

Thus, this was a key factor in his chosen number plate for his Mini Cooper, which reads Y99 WEB.

According to the publication, Webb said: "It’s great to have my own wheels now."

Webb is currently in Estoril, Portugal, working alongside teammate Randy Krummenacher to get their new 125GP bikes set up correctly ahead of the upcoming season, with the first race taking place in Qatar.

According to What Car?, "no other small car is as much fun to drive" as the Mini Cooper Hatchback, while the vehicle is also stronger at holding its value.

The review also noted that the ride and handling of the vehicle is a "hoot on any journey", while motorists benefit from a "fine driving position".
