Race winner Tom Booth-Amos will stay with his current team for a second campaign in WorldSSP300 in 2021

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya race winner Tom Booth-Amos (RT Motorsports by SKM-Kawasaki) will remain with the team for the 2021 season in the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship after he impressed in his maiden campaign with four podiums including a victory at the inaugural Catalunya Round.

Booth-Amos made his debut at the Spanish Round and secured a double podium finish by finishing second and third in Race 1 ad Race 2 respectively at Jerez. He followed this up with third in Race 1 at Portimao but three retirements in the next four races would hamper his title challenge. He claimed his first WorldSSP300 victory at Catalunya in Race 1 in stunning fashion but retired from the next two races, including Race 1 at Magny-Cours.

Tom Booth-Amos said: “I’m so happy to extend my contract for another year with RT Motorsports by SKM – Kawasaki. With this year under my belt, in 2021 we can focus on clinching the title. Massive thanks to Rob and Frank and Kawasaki for believing in me and given me the opportunity, and everyone else in the team for all the hard work.”

Rob Vennegoor, Team Manager and owner, added: “It’s great news that Tom will be in our team for next year again as he showed in 2020 many times that he can be incredibly fast. Unfortunately, he was unlucky a few times, but I am sure he will be there next year, together with Dorren Loureiro. We are also pleased that two riders signed already for 2021 before the current season is over and that shows that confidence is high.”

After showing strong pace throughout his maiden WorldSSP300 season, Booth-Amos will be hoping he can score more consistent results throughout 2021 to mount a title challenge. He has shown he can score wins and podiums but also that he can fight through the field when he needs to and will be looking to build on this for 2021.
