We were saddened and shocked to hear earlier today about the tragic loss of Sean Edwards. Sean was a friend of the team, a great person and a great driver. He is the benchmark in Supercup and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Sean was killed in a fatal accident today during a private driving training on the Queensland Raceway in Australia. The 26-year-old Edwards, who was contesting the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup this season, was sitting in the passenger seat as an instructor when the accident happened. Edwards has for many years been one of the most popular and successful drivers in the Porsche one-make race series.

In 2006, Edwards became champion in the FIA GT3 European Championship. He has competed in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup since 2008, and in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland since 2010. Sean Edwards was the son of the ex-Formula One pilot Guy Edwards.
