Occupation: Monster Athlete
Racer, team boss, and four time X-games medallist; Liam Doran is Rallycross. Shredding harder than most drivers can even dream about, the 26 year old has built up a reputation as a fearsome competitor both on and off the track.
Growing up in the shadow of Lydden Hill meant that Liam has been slaying tyres ever since he was 14 years old. However, while his heritage in Rallycross runs deep – with his family having been involved in the sport since its inception – the British driver has worked hard to build up a world class team from the ground up, at the same time as clawing his way to the sharp end of the grid as driver on the international stage.
Most will already know about his meteoric rise through the ranks, locking in early successes in British and European championships, as well as his shock victory at X-Games 17 in Los Angeles, but fewer will know about Liam’s work as a team boss.
Alongside his driving duties, Liam also heads up the UK-based LD Motorsports squad, and oversees the race preparation of no less than eight cars. Competing in the European and new-for-2014 World Rallycross Championship, as well as selected events in the USA, Liam’s outfit takes on a level of in-house build and fabrication that rivals most manufacturer backed factory teams.
