Billy Monger on the comeback

In 2017 you would have read the story of Billy Monger the 17 year old racer who was involved in a very serious crash. One year on and Billy is showing his character as he continues his rehabilitation.

On a mission

Those of you who are familiar with social media will be aware of the hashtag #billywhizz. After a horrific crash at Donnington race track, Billy had both his legs amputated. Despite this he always maintained that his ambition would be to get behind the wheel of a race car. His attitude and bravery captured the hearts and minds of the nation and racing community alike, with the likes of Lewis Hamilton becoming a fan.

Less than a year on and Billy's determination is showing through as he starts his career driving cars again as well as entering the world of stunt car driving. 

Thanks to a progressive recovery and rehabilitation process, aided by Mission Motorsport, Billy will play a feature role in a variety of high-octane manoeuvres alongside a team of drivers from Mission Motorsport. Four Jaguar F-Type cars will take to the arena performing a set of dynamic stunts in front of a packed audience.
