John McPhee has revealed he will return to the WorldSSP Championship for the 2024 season after securing a deal with experienced outfit WRP Wepol on Triumph machinery.
The Scotsman, a mainstay and four-time race winner in the Moto3 World Championship, embarked on a change of discipline for 2023 after switching to WorldSSP, initially with Vince64 by Puccetti Kawasaki before a late season move to D34G Racing.
For 2024, however, McPhee will link up with Polish outfit WRP Wepol - better known for its exploits in the Endurance World Championship - which will mount another attempt on the WorldSSP Championship having made a brief appearance in 2021 with James Toseland in a management role.
It is the first team to announce a commitment to running Triumph STR765 RS machinery outside of the factory support PTR squad, which has already announced Tom Booth-Amos and Ondrej Vostatek for 2024.
McPhee made an eye-catching start to life in WorldSSP this year with a shock podium in the wet on his debut aboard the Kawasaki ZX-6R, but struggled for strong results in the dry elsewhere.
After parting ways with the Italian outfit towards the end of the year, McPhee made two appearances with ex-works Ducati rider Davide Giugliano’s D34G Racing team, achieving points’ finishes prior to the return of regular rider Oli Bayliss.
