Du schaust: Renntaxi nordschleife sabine schmitz

She was the Queen of the Nürburgring Nordschleife, sure. Yet she was so BMW und BMW Motorsport back when “Sheer driving Pleasure” had gravitas and actually supposed something. She was bullshit-free, cold beers bei a smokey PK after ~ a difficult day driving ns Ring-Taxi sideways through Brünnchen. She was Eifel-Blitz punkt 2am on a rainy Sunday morning, she was Frikadelli Porsche carving through the pack after ~ a pitlane start.

She was cowboy boots, quadbikes, helicopters and horses. She lived die life, walked ns walk und talked the talk. She was a hero zum a totality generation of close-to-middle-aged car guys, zurück before “woke” was even a thing.

And now she’s gone, yet she’ll never, ever be forgotten.
