Mann inks Indy Lights deal

British driver Pippa Mann signs up with Sam Schmidt Motorsports for the 2010 season
British driver Pippa Mann has signed to drive for the Sam Schmidt Motorsports team for the 2010 Indy Lights Season.

The 26-year-old Briton has tested with the team on a number of occasions since the conclusion of the 2009 campaign – where she secured three top ten finishes with Panther Racing.

“I'm really excited to be joining Sam Schmidt Motorsports for 2010,” she said. “This is a great opportunity to be part of one of the top teams in the Firestone Indy Lights series, and I cannot wait for testing next year to kick off so we can get started.

“I had a tough rookie year in 2009, and my goal for the coming season is to bounce back from that and show what I've learned over the last twelve months or so. With their vast experience and history of running championship-winning cars, Sam Schmidt Motorsports is a perfect environment for me to accomplish that goal.”

Team owner Sam Schmidt said he was pleased to have Mann on board for 2010.

"The team is quite pleased with what we've seen in Pippa during initial tests this off-season. Her pace and consistency has been good, and we're confident that we can provide Pippa with the tools that she needs to move up into the front part of the grid in the 2010 season."
