On Tuesday Sean Edwards was killed in a crash during a private testing session at Queensland Raceway in Australia. The 26-year-old from London, England sustained fatal injuries while in the passenger seat of a Porsche 996 during a driver instruction session when the car hit a tire wall.
The unnamed driver was extracted from the car which caught fire and is in intensive care with life-threatening injuries. It is believed that Edwards died on impact.
“Our thoughts are with his family and we want to express our deepest condolences to his relatives,” said Hartmut Kristen, Head of Motorsport at Porsche.
