    I just read this twitt from M.Brundle:

    Martin Brundle ‏@MBrundleF1 ora
    Terribly sad news re the death of Sean Edwards, a very talented racer. Condolences to his family and friends. Motor sport can be too cruel



    true words at the end of his twitt. :(

    It semas Sean was in the passenger seat of a 996 drived by a 20year old guy (i can't find particulars of him, but he is in bad conditions) at Queensland Raceway (Australia), during a session test.

    Edwards, 26 years old, was leading the Porsche Supercup scores with 18 pts. advantage on the 2nd.

    And this time comes to light an aspect of racing world i never considered before: a lot of drivers take risk not only by driving in the Championship they run.
    It is an act of immense generosity and love for the sport itself to take more risks instructing young drivers.

    One of those weeks you just wish you could turn the clock back on or forget entirely. First, Maria...now Sean.
    R.I.P... and condolences to both families.

    I remembered him winning the Dubai 24 Hours 2012 and 2013. And was also a winner for the Black Falcon team at the Nürburgring 24 this year and the Long Beach round of the American Le Mans series in the GTC class.
