Moto3: Meet the rookies – #7 Tom Booth-Amos

Next on the list is Britain’s own Tom Booth-Amos.

Booth-Amos has previously made an appearance on the Moto3 grid as he was handed a wildcard appearance for 2017 at his home race in Silverstone. After qualifying in 32ndposition, he was able to climb up the grid into 21stposition, impressive going for his one-off appearance. The then 21-year old had been gifted this lucrative opportunity after numerous podium appearances during his time with the Moto3 Motostar British Champions series. Booth-Amos went on to claim the 2017 title in the series and opening the door for his move to CEV with the British Talent Team.

However, 2018 was not the year Booth-amos was hoping for. The Brit joined the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior Championship but injury early in the season saw him rack up two DNSs as well as four DNFs. Unfortunately, the injury he sustained during the opening round caused him to struggle for the remainder of the season and he could only manage the one top 10 finish in Albacete where he claimed fifth.

Booth-Amos will graduate to Moto3 where he joins CIP Green Power alongside Darryn Binder where he will hopefully have an injury-free and successful season.
