The Monster Energy World RX Team confirms that Liam Doran will not be competing at round eight of the FIA World Rallycross Championship, hosted in Lohéac, France, 6-7 September 2014. Following his guest drive at World RX of Canada, Henning Solberg will again be driving car number 88, as replacement in the team alongside Davy Jeanney.
Liam Doran will fulfill his role as team manager, and mentor to the drivers, whilst he awaits clearance to race again after his actions at the FIA World Rallycross Championship round at Lydden Hill are being investigated. These do not relate to racing but concern his father who was involved in an incident during a Group B demonstration.
Out of respect for the due processes currently underway, no further information can be given at this time.
“I am clearly disappointed to be unable to race this round of the FIA World Championship,” said Doran. “Lohéac is a phenomenal track and I’m excited to work with Davy and Henning and support them both this weekend. For Davy it will be a special occasion with home support and Henning will no doubt be quick from the get-go. My role is going to be to direct all my energy towards those guys succeeding.”
Further news will be communicated in due course and the Monster Energy World RX Team looks forward to a successful weekend for World RX and both drivers in Lohéac.
