The Sean Edwards Foundation is the only registered UK-based charity focused on raising safety awareness in motorsport. We work directly with drivers, teams and tracks to conceive and implement risk mitigation initiatives throughout all levels of racing.
Like many motorsport focused charities before it, SEF was born out of tragedy. Sean was killed in Australia on October 15, 2013. He was coaching a rookie driver from the passenger seat when the car left the track and hit a concrete wall. Sean was just 26 years old but had already achieved and impressive motorsport career including back to back Dubai 24H wins, triumph at the Nurburgring 24H and was on the cusp of taking the Porsche Supercup Championship, having been Vice Champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany in 2011 and 2012. Several factors contributed to Sean’s death, but had better attention been paid to simple safety procedures he would be racing today.
