Pippa Mann withdrawn from New Hampshire IndyCar race after practice crash

Pippa Mann RLL Indycar New Hampshire 2011

Pippa Mann has been withdrawn from the New Hampshire IndyCar race by the Rahal Letterman Lanigan team after a heavy crash during practice.

After needing a medical crew to remove her from the wrecked Dallara, the 28-year-old Briton was taken to the nearby Concord Hospital. Precautionary X-rays of her neck and a CT scan both proved negative, but she was unable to take part in qualifying.

She will now undergo a final tests in Indianapolis on Monday to assess her fitness.

"Pippa worked very hard this weekend and we are hoping for a speedy recovery and a return to the Rahal Letterman Lanigan car," said RLL co-owner Bobby Rahal.
