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The entry was withdrawn Saturday afternoon after a crash during Saturday’s practice session resulted in Mann being removed from competition by Indy Car Series Medical Staff.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.
