Billy Monger is back in the driving seat this weekend as he joins ParalympicsGB athlete ahead of the Tokyo 2020 games.

On Saturday night, August 21, Channel 4 airs Billy Monger: Changing Gear sees the double amputee racing driver train with Paralympians under the watchful eye of English sprint runner and fellow amputee Jonnie Peacock.

It’s quite a challenge for 22-year-old Monger as for the first time since a life-changing racing accident at Donnington Park he learns how to run again.

Not content with just sprinting around a track Billy also swims with Alice Tai and canoe with Charlotte Henshaw.

Returning the favour Monger then shows the Paralympians how to become a racing driver.

Billy Monger: Changing Gear is on Channel 4, Saturday 21 August at 8pm and available afterwards on All 4.
