Pippa Mann Returns to Super Trofeo
China Grove, N.C. -( June 21, 2018)-Nine months after the Laguna Seca race weekend and one year since her podium finish at the Watkins Glen round of the 2017 Super Trofeo North American Championship, the British driver dons the black and gold fire suit for the 3rd and 4th rounds of Super Trofeo North America.
Pippa Mann is joining the Precision Performance Motorsports team to co-drive the #47 Huracan Super Trofeo EVO alongside PRO-AM points leader Patrick Liddy. The PPM entry will also feature branding from three of Pippa’s primary Indy 500 sponsors – Donate Life, OrthoIndy, and Bell Techlogix.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to rejoin the Super Trofeo paddock, and to return to one of my favorite US road course at Watkins Glen.” Says Pippa. “I’m thrilled to be able to bring Donate Life, OrthoIndy, and Bell Techlogix with me, and I’m very thankful to PPM for helping create this opportunity for me to get back into a racing car again. I can’t wait to see how the car looks with the Donate Life, OrthoIndy and Bell Techlogix logos, and I can’t wait for race weekend!”
Pippa will get her first taste of the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO when she hits the 11-turn New York circuit in first practice on Thursday 28th June.
“I was excited to see the new Super Trofeo car last fall at Laguna Seca, and I was gutted not to be able to pull together the funding for a full season, and to miss the first round this year at Mid-Ohio.” Mann stated. “I haven’t had any testing yet, but I hear great things from my friends in the paddock in terms of the upgrades and handling, so I am looking forwards to adapting to the challenge and getting the chance to drive the new car for the first time.”
