The Motor Sports Association is shocked and saddened by the loss of British racing driver Sean Edwards, who died in an accident on Tuesday in Australia.

He was 26.

Sean was a hugely promising young racer who came through the junior formulas in Britain, before making a career in international sports car racing.

He is leading the 2013 Porsche Supercup championship and had won both the Nurburgring and Dubai 24 Hours this year.

The MSA extends its deepest sympathies to Sean's family, friends and fans at this difficult time.
