With so many changes of rider and machine on the trials scene for 2018 official Scorpa UK importer Nigel Birkett announced today that 19 year old Tom Minta has moved to Scorpa for the 2018 season on the new Factory model.
Nigel Birkett: “I am really pleased to welcome Tom to the team for 2018. He was very impressive at the Scottish Six Days Trial and at the Scott showing his all-round ability on all types of terrain. He will be riding the new 300cc Factory model alongside Andy Chilton in the SSDT and the Scott as well as all the British Championship rounds and other major events. This is a good opportunity for Tom to show me just what he is capable of and as he is so young I can only see his results getting better has he gains more experience”.
Tom Minta: “First I would like to thank John Shirt Jnr and everyone at JST Gas Gas UK for their help and support in 2017. I am looking forward to the 2018 season with the support from Nigel on the new 300cc Factory Scorpa, in addition I will also receive support from Inch Perfect Trials. After testing the Scorpa I was very impressed with its performance and the chance to embrace Nigel’s vast experience was one not to miss. I will contest the full British Trials Championship season along with the SSDT, Scott trial and other major events. I will also travel to Europe for some of the popular two and three day events”.
