IndyCar: Pippa Mann to contest 2014 Indy 500

British driver Pippa Mann will be back behind the wheel of an Indy car in May as she will contest de 2014 Indy 500.

Mann will drive the pink and white Honda-powered No. 63 Dale Coyne Racing car in the 500 Mile Race.

A cause-oriented idea sparked a promotional proposal that mushroomed into a pink platform for Pippa Mann and the Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer organization.

“I’ve closely guarded my helmet design and colors. You don’t see me change often,” said Mann, who will don a pink firesuit, too. “I thought wouldn’t it be cool to change it for a really good cause and then donate it to (the Indianapolis Komen organization) after the race to auction. I’m really proud to be involved with this program and raise money for Susan G. Komen.”

The pledge site – www.racewithpippa.com -- will be available through May 25.
