Following the success of the last 3 years' events, SEF put into gear the fourth annual Monaco Bike Ride in remembrance of Sean.

Drivers and friends of Sean’s attended and supported the Foundation that bears his name, its vital role in raising awareness of and implementing changes to enhance driver safety on the track worldwide. The ride will take participants from the principality of Monaco along the coast and into Italy.

The Sean Edwards Foundation is a nonprofit organisation focused on raising safety awareness in motorsport. Working directly with drivers, teams and tracks to conceive and implement risk mitigation initiatives throughout all levels of racing.

Venue

In front of Grimaldi Forum

History

Like many motorsport-focused charities before it, the Sean Edwards Foundation was born out of tragedy. Sean Edwards 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 an impressive career including back-to-back Dubai 24h wins, triumph in the Nürburgring 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 may still be racing today.
