BSR BillyWhizz Fundraiser

Billy Monger unfortunately suffered a horrific accident at Donington during his F4 race and suffered long term injuries. £260,000 is hoping to be raised to provide Billy with all he needs to get him to an active, stable lifestyle and to support him and his family at this difficult time. This target has already been smashed and currently sat at over £810,000 (12/05/17)

Billy woke from his induced coma 20th April and already hinted at driving a racing car again, which is fantastic to hear.

The Motorsport community has shown overwhelming support and we at BSR wanted to help as much as we can so we organised a fundraising event which consisted of 3x 19 lap races around Brands Hatch GP in the Kia Optima and Porsche 911. 61x drivers took to the grid including BTCC Drivers Ash Sutton and Rob Austin. A total of £2216 was raised through the race event and raffle which we hope will help with Billy's recovery.

From all involved in this event we wish Billy a speedy recovery and we cannot wait to see him on track again. Billy is a true gent and a brave, positive and truly inspirational young man.
