Pure Attitude Racing’s Liam MacDonald gets pre-season boost
After announcing their switch to Yamaha machinery for the 2022 MotoAmerica Twins Cup season, Pure Attitude Racing have concluded their first shakedown test aboard the R7.
Running completely ‘stock’ motors and suspension, riders Liam MacDonald and Trevor Standish were able to blow off the winter cobwebs at the Daytona International Speedway, the venue for the opening round of their 2022 campaign in early March.
Boasting big smiles, both riders expressed their satisfaction and optimism for the season ahead after their final lap of the test and look forward to hitting the track again in the coming weeks prior to lights out for Round 1.
“The bike felt really good immediately, even though it was completely stock. It felt familiar and the performance was really promising. Even though I wasn’t pushing, the top speed was impressive, and it handled superbly. This bodes well, and I am excited for the season ahead and to go back to Daytona with a full spec Yamaha YZF R7 underneath me. It was great to see my Pure Attitude Crew again and to start this new bLU cRU journey with Trevor. I’ve been working hard on my physical fitness and am really confident at what we can achieve this season.”
