Sports specials

Last year I won the overall championship in the 750mc Sports Specials. This was my first season in the class and was in a car that I had built myself. 



I began my journey through motorsport in karting. Starting in club championships and moving up to the british championship.

Some information about me and what I have done

About Me

Name: Matthew Booth

Age: 22

Nationality: British

Hobbies: Car racing, Karting, Motocross.


Throughout last year I competed in the sports specials championship of the 750 Motor Club in the car I built myself. It was a tough year as I worked on improving the car every round which allowed me to secure 3 wins and be on the podium for 5 of the 7 rounds. At the end of the year I managed to secure the Class C championship and also the overall 2016 Sports Specials championship.


After completing my ARDS test I moved from Kart racing to cars. I looked at the many different options and finally decided that the Locost championship in the 750 Motor club would be the best for me. I had some good results straight from the off, even a podium at rockingham and I earnt alot whilst doing it, even with the mechanical faliures at the end of the year I took positives from it all. 



Throughout 2012 and 2013 I raced in the KGP Super One series. In my first season I raced on a Birel chassis and I was first rookie and overall 12th place. I then switched to a Maranello chassis for my second year. Throughout the year there were ups and downs and the results weren't what I had hoped for but this allowed me to realise what I wanted to do in the future. 


These were the most enjoyable years of racing in karts I had. In 2010 I had my first go in the NKF championship. This was a championship that visited different club races around the north of the country. In the first year it was just me and my dad and it went quite well but the second attempt in 2011 we joined up with another Dad and lad that had experience in the british championship and went as our own team with me achieving 3rd in the championship and him being the champion.


This was my first full year in the sport. Starting as a novice at the back of the grid I managed to secure 3rd in the club championship at wombwell.
