Liam MacDonald began riding at the age of 16. Entering the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK), in Supersport, in 2016, it was the following year, 2017, that saw him win all ten races in MSBK ‘Supersport Rookie’ series.
A broken wrist twelve months later didn’t stop him from wrapping up the MSBK National Supersport Championship and scoring points on his debut in the Asia Road Racing Championship in the SS600 category. Severing his finger in a Race 2 crash, it was 2019 before Liam could line up on a competitive grid once again. Contesting both the MSBK Supersport and ARRC Supersport 600 championships it was a character-building year. He also made his 1000cc debut at the end of 2019, racing to a brace of second place finishes at the Sepang International Circuit.
After sitting 2020 out Liam returned to the track in 2021, competing for Pure Attitude Racing in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup Championship with immediate success. Eleventh overall in the final standings does not truly reflect his achievement. The ability to learn not only new circuits, but also a new machine and new tyres is something that Liam took in his stride, his season highlight P5 at Road America.
Impressed by his natural speed and ability, Pure Attitude Racing announced that Liam would remain for them for a second season in 2022, the target – the podium!
