Dont know who his lawyer is, but he did a damn fine job.

July 2015 should have stood. Never mind
Could have rented the car to keep the team busy.

The most incredulous part of the whole Doran tantrum is that it was his circuit, effectively his marshals and rescue crews, for which he has a responsibility and a duty of care.

Only apologised because he was forced to do so.

Feel sorry for his father.

Indeed TWR

All rather embarassing for Pat, and I suspect the whole family.

I was amused by the team going under threat and losing employees! It seems in the past they have not had much trouble losing them with or without losing their "star" driver.

It is also a ridiculous line of argument. It is basically saying "I am very rich, I employ a lot of people, therefore I should be treated leniently and allowed to get away with something that poorer people shouldn't." That argument wouldn't work in the UK courts so why it works with the MSA courts I really don't know.

I'd love to know who made him a UK rallycross ambassador???

Just curious, has it been confirmed anywere that it was Liam involved in the problems at Gatebill? If it was then that really is a new low which is a pitty as there were signs that after his move to JRM things were looking up.

Not sure what was oging on here

But surely as a sponsor, with no results to speak of and numerous fairly pathetic incidents, you have to be asking questions

That is just sad to watch. Monster have to a long hard look at them self, as if they keep him as an "Athlete" then it send out all the wrong signals for them as a brand. All it takes is a few mindless idiots to tarnish a otherwise good name.

Some of the comments with regards to Gatebil seem to be unsubstantiated, but it's hard to argue with that video evidence. There is a second clip of Liam taken earlier in the day as well.

My thoughts exactly. Been a while since we have seen any stupidity from Liam, I really thought he had calmed down.

As others have said, it doesn't put Monster in a particularly good light, does it?

I would expect that as a sponsor you would expect quite a few things to be in place to agree a deal such as this.

LD seems to get about quite a lot as a rep for Monster. he is also sponsored by quite a few other brands, clothing, motorsport parts etc.

So he either has a very good press agent who is constantly getting him deals or he has the profile of someone that marketing folk think represents the market they want.

I think it's the former obviously. But he does seem to appear all over the place, was at MXGP the other week, Goodwood, drag racing stuff. he ran out of fuel at Goodwood, he coated the trak with oil at BSB a few years back, it's a bit of a joke really.

Also a sponsor usually wants results, Liam hasn't had any to speak of for quite some time now, and I mean nothing, no wins, nothing. he is not alone in that respect.

If you were Monster, who would you prefer, A Bakkerud who is winning, is great with fans with his cohort Block who gets you millions of youtube hits, access to a world noone else can get you on things like Top Gear, has a sort of bolshy attitude without being nasty? Or Doran who has now two bad raps on his profile has endless run ins with authority, has a mouth like a pimp.

I don't get it, I simply don't get it. But I think this might be the last straw, he wasn't competing, he was representing his team and sponsor, and if I were IMG he would be gone. You should see hte vitriol on facebook. not good.

Imagine what a Tohill, Enerberg, Lysen could do with this sort of money.

Very good post Chunder, got it spot on. Over the years I've seen the Doran's rallycross involvement, from Pat's debut in the Sierra, the GP B final where he grabbed Richard Hutton round the neck after a first corner incident. Liam's debut in the Mini then moving up through the classes. Both Liam and Pat have had amazing results over the years, and a lot of lows, both know how to kill a car. I was at Essay when a very young Liam made the B final in Pat's old Fiesta, what was a major achievement that day. Basically they certainly haven't been boring.

You know you've had a proper night on the town when you've made it into The Sun...



...the article is riddled with errors but, irrespective, it's really not the mainstream expose that you want to see rallycross get, is it?
