Following the tragic death of driver Sean Edwards in a crash in Australia earlier in the week NGT Motorsport have withdrawn the #30 car from the GTC class of this weekend’s Petit Le Mans in a gesture to honour the 26-year-old.

Edwards was regular driver with the team in the American Le Mans Series, but was not expected to race at Road Atlanta due to commitments with the German Porsche Carrera Cup.

“Obviously we had very sad and shocking news,” said team owner Ramez Wahab. “We still can’t believe it. Our buddy Sean passed away. We thought it was the most appropriate thing to do, to withdraw the car in Sean’s honor. We just don’t feel it would be right to enter the car, with the many memories of Sean, and because we miss him already.”

The team’s second car (#31), carrying a special livery designed to look like a MOMO firesuit will race as originally entered, shared between drivers Nicolas Armindo, Christina Nielsen and Angel Benitez Jr., who will also race for the team in the IMSA Cup Challenge series.
