Returning under the wings of the Polish team as World Motorcycle Champion, Gino Rea will join Kevin Manfredi, Danny Webb and Sheridan Morais in the 777 crew, which will start in the full cycle of FIM EWC in the Superstock class.

A few days after the team of Grzegorz Wójcik and Sławomir Kubzdyl announced the full Polish lineup of the 77 crew, Wójcic Racing Team confirmed the international, star-studded 777 lineup.

The Polish team will fully make use of the new regulations, according to which not three, but four competitors will be allowed to participate in the Superstock class.

In the 2024 season, British Gino Rea will return under the wings of Wójcik Racing Team, who in 2019 began his journey with FIM EWC in the colors of the Polish team, and last year won the world championship as a Honda factory competitor.

Gino will join the 777 crew two of the fastest riders in the Superstock class of last season, Italian Kevin Manfredy and British Danny Webb.

Sheridan Morais will be experienced as the fourth pillar of the team, which ended the 2023 season with points at the third place of the Superstock World Cup. The popular “Shez” has been representing Wójcik Racing Team for four years and together with Rea he stood together on the FIM EWC podium in the colors of the team 77.

The international lineup of the 777 crew will receive a new Honda CBR1000RR motorcycle. On the second such machine in the EWC class, crew 77 with a fully Polish team will start; Kamil Krzemień, Artur Wielebski, Jurand Kuśmierczyk. The FIM EWC World Championship season will start in April with a 24-hour race at Le Mans.

“We are very excited to announce such a strong, international lineup of the 777 team and welcome Gino back to our team,” says Grzegorz Wójcik. “After a great season of 2023 next year we want to fight for the top positions again. Our competitors are not only very fast but also experienced, and Gino, Kevin and Sheridan already know Honda motorcycle well. This is very important for us, because we have a lot of work to do on developing new machines for us. Both the 777 crew, as well as the fully Polish 77 team, are looking forward to the first race of the new season.”

“Gino knew that our motorcycle would be waiting for him as soon as he felt ready to return to the track after the dangerous accident he suffered at the Suzuka track,” adds Sławomir Kubzdyl. “I had no doubt that this moment would come and I am happy that it is coming at such an exciting time for us. Gino’s story shows that motorcycle racing is a sport for the truly strong. Gino is a contender for blood and bone just like Kevin, Danny and Sheridan. I am convinced that these four, also thanks to the new regulations, will create a winning combination and at the same time it will help us develop new motorcycles for us.”
