DLI-PippaMann-FinalLivery_preview.jpgRacecar driver Pippa Mann, the record holder for the fastest lap by a female at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, will partner with Donate Life Indiana for the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, and beyond. In her role as a spokesperson for Donate Life Indiana (DLI), Mann seeks an increase in awareness for the organization’s youth education initiatives in Indiana which will promote organ donor registration. It is the mission and responsibility of Donate Life Indiana to ensure that when Hoosiers go to the BMV, they are equipped to make an educated decision when asked the donation question. It is uniquely important to educate young people, since they visit the BMV three times between the ages of 15 and 21. Mann and DLI expect the campaign to encourage more teacher partnerships to educate students about donation and transplantation inside classrooms.

Meet Pippa Mann

DLI-PippaMann-4.jpgPippa Mann is an IndyLights race winner, top five championship finisher and was the first female racer ever to win a pole at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. She was also voted Most Popular Driver by the fans in IndyLights in 2010. Her first Indycar start came at the 2011 Indianapolis 500, where she became the first British female racer to ever qualify for the race.

Since 2011 Pippa has started six Indianapolis 500s, and currently holds the record as the first female racer to ever turn a lap above 230mph at the famous speedway.

Bryan Clauson, beloved Hoosier driver who saved five lives through organ donation, was one of her Indy 500 teammates.

Pippa first became a Driven2SaveLives Driver Ambassador in the lead up to the 2017 Indianapolis 500, and first carried the marks on her car in the fall of that season in a partnership with Donor Network West. With permission from Bryan’s parents, she races with a grasshopper on the back of her helmet, and the words “Forever Chasing 200” to represent her friendship with Bryan.

In 2018 she will attempt to qualify for her seventh start at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing in the #63 Donate Life Dale Coyne Racing Honda.

There are currently 114,969 people waiting for a lifesaving transplant.
