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

Not that he has time to get star struck, mind. Along with the X Games, European Rallycross and a simply mentalist sport known as the Lucas Off Road Racing Series ("You drive a racing truck over stuff. It's insane. It's just pure aggression"), he's also competing in one of the world's oldest and most famous races: Pikes Peak.
"Monster were looking for someone to sponsor, and I just threw my name into the hat. Somehow, they trusted me enough to do it." His dad - Rallycross legend Pat Doran ("I can beat him") - has also put a considerable amount of faith onto Liam's young shoulders too, in the form of his Ford RS200 Pikes contender.
