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.
About Pippa Mann
After racing in karts and open wheel cars in her native England and Europe, Pippa Mann moved to the U.S. in 2009 to compete in Indy Lights. Mann was the first woman in any category to earn a pole position at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Indy Lights, 2010) and became one of two female Indy Lights race winners in the category’s history at Kentucky later the same year. She made her Verizon IndyCar Series debut at the 2011 Indianapolis 500, and has competed in every 500 since 2013 with a best finish of 17th. Mann also became the first female athlete at IMS to ever record a 230mph average lap, which she achieved on Fast Friday in 2017. This May she is attempting to qualifying for her seventh Indianapolis 500.
