Porsche says the Supercup Championship leader was sitting in the passenger seat as an instructor in a private driver training session at Queensland Raceway when he was killed.

The car was being driven by a 20-year-old local driver when it crashed into a tire wall and caught fire. The driver was seriously injured.

The 26-year-old Edwards is the son of former Formula One driver Guy Edwards.

Hartmut Kristen, Head of Motorsport at Porsche, says ``this news has sparked immense regret at Porsche. Edwards has for many years been one of the most popular and successful pilots in the Porsche one-make race series.''
