Just two years on from his near fatal F4 accident at Donington Park, British youngster Billy Monger secures his first victory since returning to racing.
Having lost both of his lower legs in a terrible accident at Donington Park back in April 2017, Billy Monger has managed the previously unthinkable to take a deserved victory in a rain hit Pau Grand Prix Euroformula Open race this weekend.
Having already returned to the podium first time out in British F3 last year, Monger took the chequered flag in dramatic style at the notoriously difficult Pau GP circuit in France, overcoming the difficult weather conditions to scythe his way through the field on a day when many more experienced drivers made mistakes.
Having taken the gamble to switch tyres early in the race, Monger would pull back all the time lost to his rivals as he powered back into race winning contention, eventually taking a lead he would never lose following a collision between Julian Hanses and Liam Lawson that promoted the young Carlin driver to the front of the field.
Following up from a top ten finish in the previous Euroformula Open race, Monger has again done wonders to cement an ever growing reputation in the sport.
