2021 WorldSSP300 runner-up Tom Booth-Amos will make the step-up to WorldSSP next season, while Jeffrey Buis and British Supersport rider Ben Currie will do the same at Motozoo Kawasaki. 

Booth-Amos, winner of two races this season, has agreed to join Prodina Kawasaki on a one-year deal.

2022 will be Booth-Amos’ first season in the intermediate class, as is the case for the Prodina Kawasaki outfit who have decided to expand their SSP300 involvement into WorldSSP too.  

"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," said the former Moto3 rider. 

"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."

Booth-Amos is not the only new rider to move up with Kawasaki as 2019 SSP300 champion Jeffrey Buis has done the same with Motozoo Racing. 

The Belgian teenager already has WorldSSP experience unlike Booth-Amos after competing in two rounds earlier the year. 

Buis added: "I am really very happy to confirm my presence in the Supersport World Championship in 2022. 

"Continuing with Motozoo, the team with which I am competing in the last two races of the 2021 season, in Argentina and Indonesia, makes me happy. 

"I got along well with them right from the debut, they are very professional and prepared. Already in my debut race we managed to reach the points zone. 

"Having confirmed our collaboration also for 2022, it will allow us to prepare ourselves in the best possible way for next season."

Buis will be alongside experienced Supersport 600 rider Ben Currie, who has applied his trade predominantly in the British paddock.

After a difficult 2020 season in British Superbike, Currie returned to Supersport with Gearlink Kawasaki and finished second overall to Jack Kennedy - second time that’s happened in three years. 

Speaking ahead of his first season on the world scene, the Australian said: "I have been working for a long time to take the opportunity to compete in the Supersport 600 World Championship. 

"For me it is a dream come true and I am looking forward to getting on track for the first tests. 

"I will have the opportunity to continue my work with Kawasaki and this is certainly very positive. 

"In these seasons I have always achieved great results in Supersport 600 with the Kawasaki ZX-6R and I am sure that thanks to the support of Motozoo Racing by Puccetti I will have the opportunity to reap a lot of satisfaction."
