Coming off a series-high four championships last season, Prestige Performance and Wayne Taylor Racing have announced their plans to run a four-car program in the 2017 Super Trofeo North American Series. Pippa Mann and Jackie Heinricher will be racing together in the No. 57 Prestige Performance Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo in the PRO AM class, forming the organization’s first all female driver pairing.
“I am thrilled to be joining Prestige Performance, and Wayne Taylor Racing,” said Pippa. “Learning a new car, a new team, a new series, new circuits, and working with a co-driver for the first time in 2017 will be a big learning experience for me, but I’m extremely excited to have this opportunity to be pairing up with Jackie, and joining such a storied team.”
Jackie Heinricher was the only woman to compete at the Lamborghini World Finals in Valencia, Spain, in 2016, and took home 2 third place finishes that weekend to add to her already solid podium record in the 2016 North American Super Trofeo Series.
“We are so proud to be a part of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series and to continue to support its vision for motorsports,” said Mark Laino, Race Program Manager, Prestige Performance. “Our partnership with Wayne Taylor Racing has truly allowed us to build a winning platform for drivers, both professional and amateur. We are committed to this program, its growth and are looking forward to a successful 2017, both on and off the track, for our customers and our organizations.”
The 2017 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series will hold five events during IMSA WeatherTech Championship weekends: May 4 to 6 Circuit of the Americas, June 29 to July 1 at Watkins Glen International, Aug. 4 to 6 at Road America, Aug. 25 to 27 at Virginia International Raceway, and Sept. 22 to 24 at Laguna Seca. The World Finals will be held Nov. 16 and 17 in Imola, Italy.
