I thought the car belonged to JRM? JRM bought the whole rallycross package from Prodrive (end of 2014?) and they ran the car as 1.6L, then they converted it to 2.0L?

I seem to recall that JRM had (or talked about) two cars, did Liam buy one of those two a while ago?

They do seem to have had their share of drama, but the LDM DS3's do seem pretty rapid when they are working properly.

Forgive the double post but, according to a comment from Liam on Facebook, it seems as though LDM have purchased everything from JRM.

JRM's original plan was to make a comeback next year from different news sources. They had been testing a little bit with Hirvonen as well.

Yeah, if I recall correctly they had Hirovnen in the MINI at the launch of the Silverstone track earlier in the year.

Perhaps they are looking at a different car? Or maybe they have just abandoned the idea of rallycross?

I guess they abandoned rallycross. They are developing a GT3 Nissan I think, at least some sort of GT car, and it seems to be quite a serious project.

However, EKS's Audis have been sold I heard but don't know to whom, so that could be a possibility.

Quite how they can afford it all I don't know.

Liam has done nothing, yet somehow, God only knows how is still sponsored by Monster. I find that insulting, bizarre and mildly dodgy. Rumours are he was off his face at Gatebil when he went rogue last year, yet somehow retains the green diabetes provider.

His cars have always fallen to pieces for customers, or most of them have, he has a reputation for being nasty, aggressive, dirty on track.

I literally have no idea whatsoever why sponsors, fans, or anyone would ever consider following him, wanting to be involved in a team with him or wanting him to run a car.

If they do they have literally no idea of who he is, what he is, what his track record is.

In a few ways you have to admire the man, he is one of those people that somehow floats back to the surface again. But he shouldn't. He should be long gone.

I just don't know why. Have seen him ruin race meetings, dump oil, lose parts of the car routinely, have stupid accidents, remember the GTR in Germany?

I run out of things I really do. It's beyond me.

All I can say is do what I did, email Monster and tell them you will never buy their products again while they are involved with this idiot.

If Doran has a contract with Monster, Monster could be paying a lot of money if they break the contract.
And they told it was a multi year deal...

It would surprise me, they were quite expensive.
