The inspirational story of the teenage racing driver who lost his legs in horror crash
He lost both his legs in a horror crash earlier this year - but teenage racing driver Billy Monger has impressed and inspired the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button with his incredible fightback.
Set to be British racing’s newest star, he was just weeks away from his 18th birthday when he smashed into a stationary car at Donington Park. Trapped in the vehicle for 90 minutes, he was airlifted to hospital, where doctors delivered the news that his lower legs would need to be amputated.
Having had state-of-the-art prosthetic legs fitted, Billy is now back behind the wheel and determined to return to competitive racing.
