TG chats to X-Games champ Liam Doran
Citroen’s Rallycross driver on crashing a GT-R at 160mph and racing at Pikes Peak…

Such an occurrence would not only loosen one's intestines, it could act as a looming, overbearing incentive to never get behind the wheel at speed again. But not for Liam. Somewhat tellingly, we're sitting in the shadow of his sub-WRC spec Citroen DS3 Rallycross car; a car packing 600bhp and wings wide enough to shatter any illusions of hero-dom. He breaks off from telling me about the crash, and lets me inside his mind for a moment. "I don't ever get scared behind the wheel", he says, reeling off a monologue in which he reveals a true racer's psychology, even referencing the late, great Colin McCrae.
