Pippa Mann Qualifies 22nd For 2014 Indianapolis 500

Pippa Mann has qualified in 22nd position for the 2014 Indianapolis 500, a result that will see the No. 63 Susan G. Komen / Dale Coyne Racing entry start from the inside of row eight.

The British driver ran 25th fastest on the first day of qualifications, which left her returning on Sunday to re-qualify with those cars in positions 10 – 33. In reverse order from Saturday’s speeds, all drivers had just one opportunity to put together their best four- lap run, which would ultimately determine the starting order for next Sunday’s 500-mile race.

Mann completed a four-lap average of 229.223 mph, securing her 22nd position – her best Indy 500 start to date.

Speaking about qualifications, Mann said: "Overall, I'm pleased with our run. The conditions were different from yesterday, and we just left a little on the table in terms of the amount of push I picked up, and running out of tools in the cockpit to fix it. However the conditions were different for everyone else as well, and I think we made the most of what we had. I'm pleased to have an average speed over 229 mph for that four-lap run, and I’m happy to be starting in 22nd place out of the 33 cars in the world’s greatest race!”

Mann and the Dale Coyne Racing team will now re-focus their attention on race preparation, with one more day of practice scheduled for Monday. “I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, and to getting this car back into race trim, and going out there to play. I've been really enjoying the Susan G. Komen car in traffic, and hopefully with the weather getting warmer, we can get some nice representative race-sim type running tomorrow, without the cold temps!“

Mann added: “I also just want to give everyone at Dale Coyne Racing a massive thank you for stepping up and fielding a third car for me, for the second year in a row. I'm so happy to be back with this organization, and to be starting my third Indy 500 with them, one week from today. I’m also very proud to have put the No. 63 pink car into the field, and of course to be carrying the Susan G. Komen colors this month. This pink car is out on track representing Komen, representing the survivors, and remembering those who sadly did not win their hard fought battles against breast cancer. Every lap of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that we turn, we are raising funds and awareness for Susan G. Komen, in the hope that we can really make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer forever.”
