Many of us will have seen or heard of the horrific accident at the weekend of the young Formula 4 Driver Billy Monger at Donington Park. 

 

He has unfortunately suffered life changing injuries.  Alex Zanardi should hopefully prove an inspiration to the young chap.  But in the meantime his family need help in ensuring he has the very best medical help to allow his recovery.

 

If you are able please do donate what ever you can.  However small. Petrol heads are some of the most generous and caring individuals on the planet.

Very very sad indeed. I've just been watching the BTCC race weekend having recorded it and have just seen this accident in F4. A very nasty accident indeed and my thoughts go out to poor Billy Monger but I hope as you say, that he can use Alex Zanardi as an inspiration, well said Les.

Thanks for posting this Les, we can only hope that the support he will undoubtedly get will aid his rehabilitation. Best wishes Billy.

I tuned in to BTCC on the box at the weekend just after this incident had occurred. My thoughts go out to Billy and his family, as well as all the support staff at the track including all the volunteer marshalls motor sport so relies upon. I also have to say the live TV coverage was handled very sensitively and in a very professional way.

Update: So far in about 24 hours they have raised - £542,546 for Billy - 13224 people have donated.  Thats really impressive and so heart warming.

And if the news reports are to be believed he is already trying to work out if he can work the clutch with his hands. What resolve!

He has a long journey to travel but he is a brave kid.  The trolls started to come out yesterday fuelled by Jealousy (which is weird how can they be jealous of where he is right now) - Others literally almost begrudging him of the collection.  I took 30 minutes to respond to one posted on one of my Driver friends wall as I just couldn't understand the mentality.

 

Many years ago - a long time ago.  We were racing in TVR Tuscans at Castle Combe, a wheel came off one of the cars - bounced over Cazza (who was a photographer on the track side) and killed the guy behind her in the crowd.  As we stood on the grid for a minute silence - none of us wanted to be there, no one would not have packed up if we could have saved the poor guy in the crowd.  Petrol Heads, crew and drivers all know at any point something could happen which changes our lives - those people who have given £2 may have made the same sacrifices or more so than those who gave £16k.  But the money isn't the issue.  Everyone is showing they care.

 

There to the grace.  As for those who say he chooses to do it, he knew the risks.  They anger me most. One person posted yesterday that he was lucky to be racing at £16k per weekend.  I fail to see the relevance of those statements.

According to the Sunday Tmes Sport article, the fund is now up to £730k. Amazing motorsport family coming together to support its own!
