Pippa Mann and the Lucas Oil School of Racing are teaming up to find the next generation of racing champions. The Pippa Mann Scholarship is seeking out talented girls and young women currently competing in karting and entry level motorsports to introduce them to road racing and the Lucas Oil School of Racing and Lucas Oil Formula Car Race Series, and to foster and develop their talents.
Drivers selected for the Pippa Mann Scholarship will be offered a seat in either a Lucas Oil School of Racing Basic 2-Day or 2-Day Advanced Lapping program, based on their experience. During their program, they will work with Mann and Lucas Oil School of Racing instructors. When a driver is recognized as having the potential to succeed with further instruction and seat time, next step(s) will be made available within the program.
Applications are not being accepted at this time. The next enrollment period will be announced shortly.
