Liam McAdam - A Rising Talent in Australian Motorsport
Liam McAdam is one of Australia's rising motorsport talents with a successful background in a range of motorsport events and classes. Liam currently competes in the Toyota 86 Racing Series National Championship in a car he prepared himself. This car was a statutory write off and Liam McAdam Motorsport did the hard yards building the car before the beginning of the 2017 sereis. Previous to this Liam drove in the the 2016 V8 Supercar Dunlop Development Series Championship. Having worked his way through the development classes he won the 2015 Australian Kumho V8 Touring Car Championship in his first year in V8s. Liam began his motorsport career at the age of 12 with a start in his father's old Rotax Superkart. After winning the Queensland Championship in his first year Liam set out to take on new challenges. He continued to compete in the Queensland Superkart Championship winning it again in 2011 whilst debuting in a Formula Vee at the end of the year. In addition to the 2011 class win, Liam also won the overall Qld Superkart Championship beating all ages on cumulative points. 2012 saw progression to a 125cc Gearbox Superkart and Liam instantly went to the front of the field and became the racer to beat at a national level. With the unfortunate change in rules in 2012 Liam was no longer able to run a Superkart as he was deemed too young to compete at 14 years old. Not wanting to park his obvious talents he was elevated to Formula Ford and commenced competition at the end of 2012. In only his second race meet he won all heats and the round at Winton in December 2012. In 2013 Liam commenced racing his Formula Ford in the Victorian Championship and then entered the national championship in July 2013. With a credible 9th in his first national round Liam was buoyed on to try even harder in this field of elite drivers.
In 2014 Liam transferred to Dream Motorsport lead by Dean Randle and engineered by Wayne Mackie. Liam finished 7th in the national championship and was regularly knocking on the door of the top 5 Formula Ford drivers in Australia.
Liam has also competed in the Australian Endurance Championship and the Cue 1 Hour Series in his Mazda NA1800 2B Production Sports car. This car was set up to give Liam experience in longer endurance races and along side much faster cars on tracks like Bathurst, Willowbank, Sydney Motorsport Park and Phillip Island.
