PLAYERS: Guy Edwards
Porsche Motorsport says British racing driver Sean Edwards has died in a crash during a training drive in Australia on Tuesday. Porsche says the Supercup Championship leader was sitting in the passenger seat as an instructor in a private driver training session at Queensland Raceway when he was killed. The car was being driven by a 20-year-old local driver when it crashed into a tire wall and caught fire. The driver was seriously injured. The 26-year-old Edwards is the son of former Formula One driver Guy Edwards. Hartmut Kristen, Head of Motorsport at Porsche, says ''this news has sparked immense regret at Porsche. Edwards has for many years been one of the most popular and successful pilots in the Porsche one-make race series.''
