Ex-GP racer Tom Booth-Amos will step up into the WorldSSP Championship for 2022 following his successful debut season in the junior WorldSSP 300 category.

The Briton, who completed two seasons in the Moto3 World Championship, switched to WorldSSP 300 and emerged as one of the front runners, sustaining a title challenge into the latter rounds en route to the runners-up spot in the series.

Joining new champion Adrian Huertas in stepping up to the revised WorldSSP Championship in 2022, Booth-Amos will also do it on Kawasaki machinery after landing a deal with the Prodina Team, which is also progressing from the 300 class.

It means at least one British rider will be represented on the grid next year after the sole UK entrant at the start of the year, Danny Webb, left the Wojick team after two events.

“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."

After a difficult years in Moto3, which peaked with a best finish of eighth in Sepang, Booth-Amos has since gone on to win three races in WorldSSP 300.
