Racing driver Billy Monger is preparing to return to motorsport less than nine months after a near fatal crash cost him both of his legs.

The 18-year-old from Surrey will drive this week in an exhibition at Birmingham's NEC Arena, and he is already planning a return to competitive racing next season.

He had both of his legs amputated after a high speed crash during a Formula 4 race at Donington Park last April.

But Billy says his dream of reaching F1 remains unchanged.

He told Sky News: "My focus is on driving in F3 next season, we are working on a budget for it and long term I want to get into F1.

"I'm so grateful to everyone who has backed me."



Congrats to Billy Monger! It was rather shocking how he lost his legs (and a promising single-seater racing career) at such a young age - but, he really seems to have made the best of an awful situation and picked himself back up.

His dreams of reaching F1 may, sadly, just be dreams now - but, I wish him the best of luck in whichever racing series he chooses to participate in!
