After two seasons in WorldSSP300, the British rider will step up to WorldSSP for the 2022 season
A new face will join the FIM Supersport World Championship grid in 2022 as Tom Booth-Amos makes the step to WorldSSP after two seasons competing in WorldSSP300, where he fought for the title in both 2020 and 2021. Booth-Amos will link up with the Prodina Team as they expand to WorldSSP onboard Kawasaki machinery for his debut season in World Supersport, taking part in the European races in 2022.
Booth-Amos joined the paddock for the 2020 season and finished sixth in the Championship that season, claiming one victory and five podiums from 14 races. In his second season, the British rider claimed two further wins and eight podiums as he finished second in the Championship although his title charge was derailed following an accident in Race 1 in Barcelona that forced him to miss the Spanish Round at Jerez.
Booth-Amos will join the Prodina Team who have expanded their presence in the paddock to be in WorldSSP as well as WorldSSP300, with the 2022 season the first time the team will compete in WorldSSP. The team will also expand their involvement in the CIV in Italy as they step up to the national Superbike championship, again with Kawasaki.
Explaining his switch to WorldSSP, Booth-Amos said: “I am so happy to join the Prodina Team for 2022, I only want to thank them and Kawasaki for the opportunity they gave me to move up to the World Supersport 600 class. I think it will be a strong partnership and together we could work well and be successful. I cannot wait to have my shoulder ready and fixed, and be 100% fit, so I can prepare for the preseason tests and work with the team on the bike set-up. "
Riccardo Drisaldi, Team Manager at the Prodina Team, added: “We are very happy with the adventure that we are starting with Tom for his competitive growth in medium displacements, thanks to the support of KME. Kawasaki is marrying the founding principle of our Team, that of nurturing young talented riders, to prepare them for the premier class of the category "
