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.
With no firm plans for 2020, Liam’s quest in actively seeking support to ensure he could compete was cut short by the global Coronavirus pandemic. After sitting 2020 out Liam will be back on track in 2021, competing for Pure Attitude Racing in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup Championship.
