Mann returns to Dale Coyne Racing for Indy 500 bid
For a fourth consecutive year, Pippa Mann is returning to Dale Coyne Racing as part of the team's effort at this year's 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500.

"This cause is something very personal to me and to Dale Coyne Racing," said Mann, who will drive the No. 63 Dale Coyne Racing Honda. "While racing a pink car the past two years certainly attracts attention and awareness for Susan G.

Sir Jack Brabham Honored In 100 Most Influential People To The Indy 500
This month's 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 means that little bit more to 22 year-old rookie Matt Brabham every day - this past weekend he was honored to learn his Grandfather, Sir Jack Brabham was included in the 100 most important people in the Indy 500's history.
After nearly two years of planning and preparing for the Grand Prix of Boston race organizers have decided that the current demands to secure additional line of credit funding make the race fiscally untenable to be held in the City of Boston and the Seaport district September 2-4, 2016.
"An event of this magnitude requires considerable city and state support and though we did overcome significant obstacles and demands that have been presented to us, the most recent demands regarding the flood zone issues and requirements of additional expenditure on the line of credit with no guarantees of overcoming those issues have left us no options but to cancel the race in Boston and look at other options," said John Casey, CEO and President of the Grand Prix of Boston.
Brabham Lays Solid Foundation For The Month Of May
PIRTEK Team Murray rookie driver Matt Brabham laid a solid foundation for his Verizon IndyCar Series debut next month with an enormously productive test at Sebring International Raceway in Florida today.
Brabham will drive in the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis on May 14 and then attempt to become just the third third-generation driver to qualify for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 - the world’s biggest one-day sporting event.
The 22-year-old Florida born racer ran 134 trouble-free laps on the 1.67-mile (2.67km) road course under the watchful eye of his British-based engineer Andy Brown and an experienced crew from KVSH Racing.
Brabham drove Sebastien Bourdais’ regular Verizon IndyCar Series entry, re-branded in PIRTEK colors and carrying the number 61 - paying tribute to the year that his Grandfather, Sir Jack Brabham, started the rear-engine revolution at Indianapolis.
