Britain’s Liam Doran will continue his return to the FIA World Rallycross Championship with the GC Kompetition team this week at the World RX of Latvia in Riga.

Doran raced for GCK at the World RX of France recently in his first World RX start for two years and made the semi-finals, but his hopes of a final were ended by a puncture. The British driver, partnering France’s Guerlain Chicherit, starred at Loheac and scored the best qualifying result so far in GCK’s history with the Renault Megane RS RX, with second quickest time in Q3 and being sixth after Q4.

“We’re excited to have Liam back at GCK again for Latvia RX alongside Guerlain. Liam was a great addition to the team in Loheac, he put down some really impressive times and showcased some awesome driving until picking up a puncture in the semi-final,” said Karl O’Sullivan, GC KOMPETITION Team Manager. “His experience in and passion for rallycross was felt both on and off the track and we look forward to seeing him back with GCK in Riga.”

The “British Bomb” will race at the Bikernieki National Sports Base circuit for the first time this weekend. “I am stoked be given another opportunity to drive this insane car with this amazing team this weekend. It was a dream come true to get the chance to drive at such a high level in France,” he said. “I feel I made the most of my opportunity and am happy with my semi-final but feel I have some unfinished business. I cannot wait to get back in it this weekend at Riga, a very cool track I’ve never driven. We went into the last event with no expectations... but let’s just say I’m starting this one with some!.”
