Biography

Guy Richard Goronwy Edwards, QGM (born 30 December 1942) is a former racing driver from England. Best known for his sportscar and British Formula One career, as well as for brokering sponsorship deals, Edwards participated in 17 World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on 13 January 1974. He scored no championship points.

Career

Edwards competed in the Aurora Formula One Championship in the UK from 1978 to 1980, scoring several wins driving March, Fittipaldi and Arrows chassis. In 1979, he scored the only race win for a Fittipaldi Formula One chassis.

He is also renowned for being one of the drivers, along with Arturo Merzario, Brett Lunger and Harald Ertl who saved Niki Lauda from his burning car during the 1976 German Grand Prix, for which he was later awarded a Queen's Gallantry Medal for his bravery. Currently, he works helping racing drivers to get sponsorship.

His son Sean, also a racing driver, was killed in a motor racing accident at the Queensland Raceway at Willowbank on 15 October 2013. He was training a younger driver, when the Porsche 911 GT3 the pair were driving in caught fire following a high-speed crash.

In October 2018, media falsely reported him dead.
