British racing driver Sean Edwards, who was killed in a crash in Australia, was the son of former Formula One driver Guy, who helped pull Niki Lauda from his burning Ferrari at the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.
Sean also appeared in the recently-released film Rush, playing his father.
The governing body for UK motor sports has paid tribute to a "hugely promising" young driver from London killed in a crash. Sean Edwards was a passenger in a Porsche when it reportedly hit the barriers at Queensland Raceway in Australia, during a private test session.
Sean Edwards is the son of Guy Edwards, the British former Formula 1 driver. He wasborn in London but was living in Monaco. He was the 2013 Porsche supercup championship leader.
