NINE months and 21 days from losing both lower legs in a horrific race crash, Billy Monger is back chasing his dreams in the cockpit of an open-wheel racecar.

The 18-year-old had his first day behind the wheel of a BRDC Formula 3 car at Oulton Park in England, the first of a string of tests with renowned junior team Carlin Racing.

“Didn’t think this would be possible a few months ago,” Monger tweeted. “Long way to go but the goal is getting closer. Thanks @CarlinRacing for making today possible.”

It’s the next stage of a comeback to racing that, last April, seemed inconceivable.
