Set to give Brough another prominent solo class presence at the world’s most famous roads meeting, East Yorkshire’s Michael Booth is once again Isle of Man bound this May, June for TT 2020.
Lead Mountain Course newcomer from TT 2016, he’s since steadily developed his skills, aptitude on the legendary Manx roads, banking a host of very creditable finishes.
19th within the record breaking, history making Pokerstars Senior encounter of 2018, TT 2019 saw him place four places better in the blue riband TT race, finishing 14th in front of Duke Road Race Rankings Champion Michael Sweeney and former TT Privateers Champion Horst Saiger.

Additional highlights of his third TT expedition included securing overall five top 30 finishes from solo races contested and an impressive new personal best lap speed of 125.917 mph.
Looking towards TT 2020 ‘Boothy’ who has been assigned start numbers 27, 37 respectively for the 1000cc, Supersport races, sticks with his trusty ZX-10R Kawasaki, 675 Daytona Triumph steeds.
Established amongst the TT’s growing band of hungry, ambitious, keenly determined next gen competitors, expect him to give another good account of himself at TT 2020 which gets underway in just over 80 days time.
