British racing driver Pippa Mann will make her third Indianapolis 500 start on May 24 with Dale Coyne Racing, it was announced Thursday.

The 31-year-old will be racing in pink gear in support of Susan G. Komen for the second consecutive year. Mann placed 24th at the 2014 running of the historic event.

“It was an honor last year to be able to partner with Susan G. Komen,” said Mann. “By bringing Komen’s iconic images and colors to the Indy 500, we were able to promote its cause, while raising funds and awareness for Komen’s mission.

“The last time I strapped into a race car may have been last May, but I feel very fortunate to have had such strong support from the Dale Coyne Racing team and from Team Owner Dale Coyne over the past 12 months.  We are all thrilled to bring this pink program back for a second year running.”

Mann is the latest of several IndyCar drivers to receive confirmation that they will be racing in the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500, with Simona de Silvestro, JR Hildebrand, Oriol Servia, Sage Karam and Sebastian Saavedra also landing confirmed rides.
