Mann returns to Super Trofeo competition at Watkins Glen

Pippa Mann will join Precision Performance Motorsports for the third and fourth rounds of the Super Trofeo North American Championship at Watkins Glen from June 29 to July 1.

Mann, who finished on the podium a year ago at the Super Trofeo race at the Glen, will co-drive the No.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 U.S. road course at Watkins Glen,” Mann said. “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!”

Mann will get her first taste of the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO when she takes to the the 11-turn New York circuit in the first practice on June 28.

“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 said. “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.”

Both races will be live streamed on IMSA.tv.com or IMSA’s ROKU channel. Live timing and scoring can be found at scoring.IMSA.com.
