10 months on from the Formula 4 crash that cost him both of his lower legs, Billy Monger has got back behind the wheel of a single-seater courtesy of a test with the Carlin team
Ever since his crash Monger has been adamant that it wasn’t going to mean the end of his racing career. Just three months after his accident tested a VW Fun Cup racer and he has a goal to compete at Le Mans in 2020 as part of an all-disabled driver line-up.
He’s been working in the simulator with the legendary junior team Carlin to adapt to driving with hand controls. Recently he got a taste of the real thing again as he tested a single-seater for the first time since his crash, driving a BRDC British F3 car at a very soggy Oulton Park.
It’s not just some publicity stunt, though - Billy is keen to pick up where he left off, get straight back on the single-seater ladder and go racing in 2018.
Amazing, right? We can’t wait to see what he ends up doing and how he gets on.
