Tom Booth-Amos joins Ondřej Vostatek at PTR Triumph for 2024

PTR Triumph Racing is revealing a partially refreshed rider line-up for the 2024 Supersport World Championship, as Ondřej Vostatek retains his seat with the team and is joined by new signing Tom-Booth Amos.

Booth-Amos will climb aboard the Triumph Street Triple 765 RS after successful joint British and World Supersport campaigns in 2023 which saw the British rider finish second overall in the UK domestic series with seven wins, a best result of sixth on the World stage, while also winning the World Supersport Challenge Championship. 

Vostatek starts his first full season with PTR Triumph Racing after completing the final five rounds of 2023 with the team, bringing home a brace of 12th places and pushing ever closer to the top ten. The FIM CEV Superstock 600 podium-finisher and championship runner-up already has experience of Triumph’s 765cc triple and will look to capitalise on the progress he made since joining the team in a season-long campaign.

PTR Racing have race-winning provenance, having brought Triumph the honours of their first ever World Supersport victory, and the first of the ‘Next Generation’ formula, in 2022. The team are regulars on the Supersport World Championship podium, most recently at the Indonesian Round in Mandalika this season.

Booth-Amos and Vostatek will embark upon a testing programme in the off-season before official testing starts in Australia on 19-20 February 2024. Just five days later the 12-round season gets underway at the same venue, Phillip Island, on 23-25 February.

Tom Booth-Amos commented: “I can’t thank Simon and Triumph enough for bringing me into the team for next year; I’ve been working hard for this kind of opportunity in my career for a long time, and we know PTR Triumph Racing has a strong package to offer. After the year I’ve had, I think this is the perfect way to move into the future and it’s exciting to be working with a British manufacturer with a British team. Hopefully we’ll be able to get out soon and try the new bike – I’m really looking forward to next season and seeing what we can do together.”

Ondřej Vostatek said: “It was a great opportunity to race with PTR Triumph Racing last year, and we made great progress. For the first two races I found it quite hard, but I started to work with my mind and tried adapting my riding style, listening to everyone around me, and I was able to take my first points. I improved in every race so far, so this gives me a lot of motivation to keep working on myself, improving the riding on the bike and I believe we can achieve good things next year. I really see a big potential in the bike, not just for a top 10 but to win a world championship. I think everyone in Triumph and the team wants to be on the top step and I will do everything I can to help them achieve it. With PTR Triumph Racing we already have some good memories in this short time. I like those guys, they are amazing, they are working really hard and I’m really looking forward to 2024. My objective is to be in the top 10 in every race, but of course we want to push further than that to be the best we can.”

Steve Sargent, Triumph’s Chief Product Officer said: “We’re pleased to announce our World Supersport line-up for 2024 with PTR Triumph Racing, and we believe that Tom and Ondřej have a lot of potential for next season. Tom won the World Supersport Challenge this year, as well as taking a runner-up finish in the British Supersport series. He’s a rider we’ve followed for some time that clearly has the speed and capability to win races at this level, so we’re excited to see what he can do on our bike. Ondřej joined the team towards the end of last season, and he has shown he has the talent, with a lot of positives taken from the races he competed in. 

“It will be interesting to see how he progresses with a pre-season testing programme and full season ahead of him along with the vast experience of the PTR Triumph Racing  team. With our global motorsport presence growing, our long-term ambition is to have a strong pathway from British Championship, right through World Supersport and perhaps in the long-term Moto2 to give racers an opportunity to grow with Triumph and we’re really looking forward to 2024.”  

Simon Buckmaster, PTR Triumph Racing Team Manager added: “We are really pleased to announce our PTR Triumph Racing line-up for next season. Ondřej Vostatek completed a number of races with us towards the end of last year, and we saw a fantastic progression with him. I’m really confident that the work we’ve done with him so far is better than any testing we could have done to put ourselves in a really good position for the 2024 season. Ondřej is a great guy to work with; he’s just 19 years old and we’re really looking forward to seeing him progress further. We’re very optimistic of a good season for him. We’re also excited to sign Tom Booth-Amos. We’ve been watching him all year, and he’s a quiet guy until you get to talk to him; he’s so focused and so concentrated on doing his best to be able to challenge for a win, and that’s what we want as a team. Winning is our goal too and it’s what our bike is capable of. It’s a really strong line-up for next season, and we’re really happy to be working with Triumph Racing on their whole racing programme from British Championship, to the TT and so on. As PTR Racing, it’s an honour to be working with Triumph and we’re looking forward to going racing next year.”
