2017

The MSA is continuing to work with the FIA and the Global Institute for Motor Sport Safety on the investigation into the very serious accident that occurred during the F4 British Championship on Sunday 16 April 2017, involving cars #23 Billy Monger and #21 Patrik Pasma.

All within the motor sport family are greatly encouraged to hear of Billy Monger’s courageous and positive response to his circumstances and the MSA continues to send best wishes to Billy Monger and his family as he starts his journey towards recovery and rehabilitation. We all look forward to seeing him racing again in the future. Patrik Pasma has made a full recovery from his injuries and is racing this weekend at Thruxton.

A technical examination of the cars was conducted by representatives of the Global Institute for Motor Sport Safety, the FIA and MSA on Thursday 20 April at Donington Park Circuit.

The MSA and the Global Institute, which is leading the technical investigation, met with representatives of the teams and championship on Thursday 4 May at Donington Park Circuit to allow access to the cars of Billy Monger and Patrik Pasma. The cars have now been released back to the teams.

The Global Institute is the safety research partner of the FIA and undertakes research to improve motor sport safety worldwide. Incident investigations often yield findings that can be utilised to improve safety within the sport and it is expected that recommendations will be made as a result of the investigation into this incident.

The MSA would like to take this opportunity to thank all volunteers and officials who were involved in the response to the incident and who continue to assist in the ongoing investigation
