Billy Monger was only 17 when he was involved in a crash that completely changed his life.
The British Formula Four driver was severely injured after he smashed into another car that had stopped on the track in April 2017. The young man was trapped for over 90 minutes before finally being rescued and rushed to a hospital.
Billy had to have both of his lower legs amputated as a result. At the time, he also had to be kept in an induced coma while being healed.
You know what they say... What doesn't kill you makes you stronger👊🏽 The love and generosity you guys have shown me has been out of this 🌎and for that I thank each and every one of you guys, you're the best motorsport family out there!!🙏🏼 I'm on a long road to recovery now, and your support will help get me back behind the wheel, it will help me get back home🤙🏽🏁 Love to you all❤️
He's an inspiration
Since his accident, 'Billy The Whizz' has always been about getting stronger and not allowing the whole thing slow him down. In fact, only months after he was discharged, he walked part of the track where he crashed into the other car.
It was also announced that Billy would return to racing and would also participate in Formula 3 championships in the 2018/19 season.
To help get him back on his feet, many people have donated up to £841,844 on the crowdfunding website, Just Giving.
Hey guys this fellow racer Billy Monger had a big shunt this past weekend at Donnington and sadly Billy has had amputations to both legs. This guy needs our help so if you can please donate, I will be doing as much as I can to help this dude out. The donations will be used to fund the care, treatments and therapies required by Billy in the immediate future and going forward, helping him to return to a full and active life. Info is on my bio.
These days, his social media page is all about uplifting people and showing how far he has come. From driving to cycling, he's constantly moving and letting the world know that nothing can slow you down.
His fans continue to cheer him on, as he pursues his dreams despite what some people would consider a disability.
