Wednesday 16th October 2013
A “hugely promising” British racing driver has been killed in Australia after the car he was a passenger in smashed into a race track wall.
Sean Edwards was instructing a 20-year-old male driver in a Porsche at the time of the accident at Queensland Raceway in Willowbank, west of Brisbane.
The driver, from Brisbane, was pulled from the burning wreckage and is in intensive care with life-threatening injuries.
Edwards, 26, the son of Guy Edwards, the British former Formula One driver, was born in London, but was living in Monaco. He was the 2013 Porsche Supercup championship leader.
