Edwards was the son of ex Formula One driver Guy Edwards.
2013 had been a great year for Sean, he won the 24 Hour of Dubai for the second time in a row as well as the Nürburgring 24, both with the Black Falcon Mercedes SLS GT3. He is leading the championship in Porsche Supercup and raced in American Le Mans with team MOMO NGT. A tin top racing superstar with an enormously bright future.
Edwards often shared on social media and his last post on Instagram is from four days ago:
"Off to Australia for driver coaching via Dubai with Emirates. Champagne and fresh orange juice to start. They are the best airline by a mile!"
I'm sure there will be plenty of web sites all too happy to post gruesome pictures of the accident, we prefer to show Sean Edwards doing what he did so well.
