Liam just outside the top ten in New Jersey
The Pure Attitude Racing team leave the penultimate round of the 2022 MotoAmerica Twins Cup Championship content with their double points finish.
Regrouping after a difficult Pittsburgh, the squad was determined to return to the top fifteen in the final two events of the season and riders Liam MacDonald and teammate Trevor Standish did not disappoint.
Solid performances in practice and qualifying were backed up by gusty, hard-fought rides from both the #37 and the #16, who powered their Yamaha USA supported machines to eleventh and fourteenth respectively at the New Jersey Motorsports Park.
For Liam, the result was impressive given his crash in the previous round, the flying Kiwi riding through shoulder discomfort to secure his ninth points scoring result of 2022.
The team now buoyed, move to the season finale in a couple of weeks eager to end the year on a high.
“It was a tough race as I was still riding in a bit of pain and discomfort. I felt like I was in a gladiator ring at the end if I am honest. I ran a decent pace in the beginning but as the race went on, I started to feel my shoulder and there was nothing I could. In the end I used my head and brough it home for some decent points. I thought I was further back as I only saw the board once, so it was a pleasant surprise to almost finish in the top ten. I will be ready to give it everything in the final race of the season at Barber in two weeks.”
