Pippa Mann and Shea Holbrook will return to the wheel of a Prestige Performance Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, having been confirmed for next weekend’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series round at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The duo, who made their first start together at Road America last month, will share the wheel of the No. 57 Lamborghini, with backing coming from the Driven2SaveLives campaign.
The campaign to promote organ, tissue and eye donation and transplantation, which was launched by Indianan Donor Network in 2016, will target IMSA fans to become donors in honor of the late Justin Wilson and Bryan Clauson.
Mann was IndyCar teammates of both Wilson and Clauson. As registered donors, both Wilson and Clauson saved five lives each through organ donations.
“While Justin and Bryan are known for their driving exploits, their decisions to register as donors and save the lives of others will forever be part of their legacies” said Mann.
“I’m deeply honored to have this opportunity to remember and to represent my former teammates.”
In addition to showcasing their support with on-car branding, Mann, Holbrook and BUBBA burger are partnering throughout the weekend with Donor Network West to help drive on-site registration of race fans as organ, tissue and eye donors.
These efforts will be highlighted through a “Got the Dot” autograph session sponsored by BUBBA burger, with Mann and Holbrook at the Donor Network West booth on Sat. Sept. 23.
Over the race weekend, fans will also be able to register to win a pair of autographed driving gloves worn by Mann.
Donor Network West is the third largest federally designated organ procurement organization and one of the largest tissue recovery organizations in the nation.
“The diversity of the communities we serve is an honor and a challenge as 10 percent of the nation’s waitlist resides in our service area,” said Cathy Olmo, Director of Communications of Donor Network West.
“The partnership with Driven2SaveLives enables us to reach a unique segment of our community with the message of donation inspired by the late Justin Wilson and Bryan Clauson.”
