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.
British racing driver Sean Edwards died when the Porsche in which he was a passenger instructing a 20-year-old male, hit a wall and caught fire.
Monaco-based Edwards, who was leading the drivers' championship in the 2013 Porsche Supercup season with one race to go, was reportedly taking part in a coaching day at the time.
The driver of the Porsche reportedly suffered severe injuries.
Former Formula One driver David Coulthard has tweeted:
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.
