Sorry Shaun, I just noticed this thread after I'd posted elsewhere.
Following the remarkable story of 18-year-old Billy Monger, one of Britain's most exciting young racing drivers, who in April 2017 was involved in a devastating crash, resulting in the amputation of his legs. Incredibly, soon after his accident, Billy resolved to get back to racing, in the hope of becoming the first ever amputee to race competitively in a single-seater racing car.

This film follows the extraordinary story of Billy and his family, as he pursues his dream to one day race in Formula One. With the support of the racing community and his hero Lewis Hamilton, Billy has to change the rules of motorsport and learn to drive again without legs, all while coming to terms with life as a disabled person - a term Billy is reluctant to accept.

This heartwarming and inspirational story is about the incredible will of one young man, but also the extraordinary support his family provides during the toughest time of their lives.

Don't know where to put this, so hope it's the right thread.....

GET IN THERE!!!! Billy Wiz wins Pau EuroFormula :cool::cool::cool::D
Billy Monger secured his maiden race victory in single-seaters, and first since suffering life-changing injuries in 2017 as he came from the back of the field to win at EuroFormula Open's Pau Grand Prix. A gamble on wet-weather tyres made the difference for Monger in France, as he survived a late safety car to take a memorable win https://www.gpfans.com/en/articles/39777/monger-takes-incredible-maiden-single-seater-victory/
