Pippa Mann (born 11 August 1983 in London, England) is a female British racing driver and team owner who won the 2012 F1RWRS season driving for Anglo-Manx Racing. She is the owner of and part-time driver for Foxdale Auto Racing Team, created as a merger between Anglo-Manx Racing and Manx-Anglo-Nippon Racing Team. She is the older sister of fellow driver and co-team owner Douglas Mann, and is currently in a relationship with fellow F1RWRS driver Ben Fleet.

Making her debut in the 2011 season, driving for the team she and Douglas formed, Anglo-Manx Racing, Pippa had a solid debut year, the highlight being a second place in only her third race at the Saxon Grand Prix. Numerous points finishes followed and despite failing to pass pre-qualifying in the final race of the year at Laguna Seca, Mann finished 10th overall with a total of 33 points - by all accounts an impressive achievement for the rookie and her new team.

Mann became the first female F1RWRS champion in 2012, the third in total in the series. Continuing to drive for her family-run Anglo-Manx Racing, she took two wins at Oschersleben and the Nurburgring to set up a championship challenge that would go right down to the wire. Consistent points-scoring throughout the year allowed Mann to edge out Chris Dagnall and Kay Lon for the drivers' championship. Anglo-Manx Racing took the constructors' title too.

Since the merger of AMR and MAN to form Foxdale Auto Racing Team, Pippa Mann has been only been driving part-time in the F1RWRS. She made way after four races into 2013 for pay-driver Ben Fleet to raise sponsorship for the ailing team, blighted by unreliability. Fleet and Mann would go on to have a committed long-term relationship with each other as a result, whilst Mann returned to the driving seat for the final race of the year at Brazil.

In 2014, Pippa replaced Jack Christopherson at Foxdale at the half-way point in the season after both Pippa and brother Douglas Mann became disenchanted with Christopherson's poor performances. Since then, Pippa has driven alongside Douglas once again, picking up a string of points finishes.
