Liam Doran is a Leading British Rally Cross Racer. Rally Cross - essentially a more professional version of parking lot Auto Cross - is one of the closest things to Professional level Rally Racing we have here in the United States. Unlike WRC, the Global Rally Cross Championship does tour through the US, and Liam Doran has several commitments on the tour. He will be bringing his Monster Energy Citroen C4 in to the country, and you can see it on the dates listed below. It's the only time you're likely to see someone in the US (other than me) wearing a Citroen Racing crew shirt.
UPDATE: Eight time WRC World Champion Sebastian Loeb will also be competing at the XGames, and will be driving a Citroën DS3 XL. See the XGames link below for details.
Just as with the Citroen C0 that drove across the United States, Liam's Citroen Citroen C4 Race Car is temporarily imported under NTHSA rules exactly for this sort of competitive activity.
