In his time over the pond, he had already competed in two Rolex 24 at Daytona events in the GT class as well as ALMS starts.

Scott Atherton, President and CEO of ALMS said: “Sean was a rising star in sports car racing who found success in the United States and around the world. We will remember him as a driver and a human being with so much potential. He will be dearly missed.”

“Sean was family to us,” said MOMO principal and co-driver Henrique Cisneros. “Our entire MOMO NGT Motorsport team is family and Sean was very much a part of that and a great friend. We are all at a loss of words that this happened and Sean won’t be coming into the transporter again to tell us a joke or give us racing advice, both of which he did so well. We have had an incredible season and he has been a big part of that. It looked like he was going to win the Porsche SuperCup championship in a few weeks and he was excited he was having such an amazing race season.”
