Talented British F4 racing driver Billy Monger has lost both his legs following an horrific accident during the British Touring Car supporting Formula 4 race at Donington Park on Sunday. Monger, 17, crashed his JHR Developments open wheel Formula 4 car into the back of the stranded Finnish driver Patrik Pasma after being unsighted on the run up to the fast Schwantz Curve at Donington Park, connecting violently with the stationary car and destroying the front of his own machine whilst suffering a violent deceleration from speeds in excess of 100 mph. Marshals were on the scene of the accident quickly last Sunday morning, however it took nearly 2 hours to extract the former Ginetta Junior and two time 2017 podium winning driver, who was later airlifted to the nearby hospital in Derby. Tragically doctors have today confirmed that despite the best efforts of the medical team they were unable to save Monger's lower legs following extensive surgery. In an effort to support the family in this difficult time JHR team boss Steven Hunter, with support of Billy Monger's immediate family, has opened up a Just Giving page for fans and motorsport insiders to donate towards the growing medical fees for this brave young man. You can contribute to the Just Giving page HERE as they look to raise £260,000 to help him overcome his life changing injuries. The thoughts and best wishes of all at RaceDepartment go out to Billy and his family at this difficult time. CORRECTION: Further clarification reveals that Monger has indeed not lost his legs fully as a consequence of the accident. The injury sustained by the driver have resulted in the amputation of his lower legs. Apologies for the initial mis communication.
