Pippa Mann will make her return to Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America competition, having joined Precision Performance Motorsports for next weekend’s round at Watkins Glen.

Mann will share driving duties of the team’s No. 47 Huracan Super Trofeo EVO with PRO-AM points leader Patrick Liddy, with the car set to carry sponsorship from three of Mann’s primary Indy 500 backers: Donate Life, OrthoIndy, and Bell Techlogix.

The run comes nine months after concluding the North American leg of the championship at Laguna Seca.

“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,” 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 hits the 11-turn circuit for practice next Thursday.

“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,” she 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.”
