Liam takes solid seventh for Pure Attitude Racing at Brainerd
Pure Attitude Racing rounded off the sixth round of the 2021 MotoAmerica series with their three participating riders – Liam MacDonald, Nate Minster and Austin Miller – racing to another triple points score.
An additional day of testing prior to the event gave all three riders an opportunity to fine tune their machines ahead of the first AMA National Championship motorcycle road racing event to be held at Brainerd International Raceway for seventeen years!
Sole Twins Cup representative for the team Liam MacDonald ran a strong second on the opening day of on track activity before qualifying a superb seventh on the grid on Saturday. The opening race of the weekend didn’t quite go to plan for the #37 rider who crashed out whilst fighting for the top six in the early stages. He bounced back to finish a solid seventh on Sunday.
The team move on to Pittsburgh for Round 7 of the MotoAmerica series in a fortnight, buoyed by the front running pace shown by all three riders, and hopeful that the event will see a racing return for Trevor Standish, who injured himself at Road America earlier in the season.
“I have mixed feelings about the weekend. It started really well. I was P2 in Thursday’s test but then had a spill in qualifying but was still able to make it onto the third row of the grid. I had another crash in Race 1 and so Sunday’s second race was about bringing it home. The team did a fantastic job all weekend, they have been amazing and really supportive, and I know that we will be able to put on a good show in Pittsburgh in a couple of weeks.”
