Tania Mann will become the first female driver to commit to a full season campaign in the ten year history of the Porsche Carrera Cup after being announced at Sibsport Performance.

She follows her unrelated namesake Pippa Mann in the series, though Pippa, now racing in the US contested only a handful of races during 2008.

“I’m following a huge dream,” said Mann. “I want to learn as much as I can from the people around me. I'm a competitive person and it’s important to me that I progress. I’m still in awe of these cars: they are unbelievable. I don't know the car or many of the circuits, so it will be a steep learning curve.”

Mann, Australian born but now based in Essex, only started car racing last season, driving a Lotus Elise and is now taking a massive leap up the racing ladder as well as indulging her life-long love of Porsche cars.

Despite the leap into the unknown Mann has acquitted herself in early running, fourth fastest in the Pro-Am 2 category during the test on the championship's media day at Silverstone earlier this week, and has enlisted former champion Tim Harvey as driver coach.

The opening round of the Porsche Carrera Cup BG take place on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit on March 31-April 1.
