You may have missed the result of the inquest which came out in February 2016.

Inquest: http://www.courts.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/456765/cif-edwards-slg-20160205.pdf

I know some members on here donated to the Sean Edwards Foundation which is run by his mother, Daphne. Saw this on Autosport and thought you might be interested.

"A new safety initiative in the name of the late Sean Edwards has been launched by the Stephane Ratel Organisation to improve safety among amateur drivers competing in the series."

Full story here: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/116441

Just thankful that Sean was out cold/dead before it actually caught fire as the OP sent a chill down my spine.

This lad could drive the wheels off a 911 and morphed into a rare breed of racer when those harnesses were clicked into place.

Wow, so likely a fault in the ABS or obstruction to throttle body by a split hose, talk about sods law nooo

I certainly find it strange that a gravel trap / barriers are not designed to stop a car to less than life threatening speeds on the fastest bend on a track Surprised

the arse covering by both the track owner and car mechanics must have been frustrating frustrated

Wow three years. I wonder where Sean would be now. Eyeing up the opportunity Webber's retirement creates?
