Rahal Letterman Lanigan Withdraws From This Weekend’s Indy Car Event at Loudon

LOUDON, New Hamp­shire (August 13, 2011) — Rahal Letterman Lanigan will with­draw the #30 Honda/Dallara/Firestone driven by Pippa Mann from this weekend’s MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 IZOD Indy Car Series race at New Hamp­shire Motor Speedway.

The entry was with­drawn Saturday after­noon after a crash during Saturday’s prac­tice session resulted in Mann being removed from compe­ti­tion by Indy Car Series Medical Staff. Mann suffered a heavy impact in the crash and the young British driver will not be cleared to drive by the Indy Car medical staff until she under­goes a final test in Indi­anapolis on Monday. Precau­tionary x-rays of her neck and a CT scan were both nega­tive and she is being released from Concord Hospital in Concord, New Hampshire.

“Pippa worked very hard this weekend and we are hoping for a speedy recovery and a return to the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Indy Car,” said RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal.
