Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Have just learned that Sabine Schmitz, Queen of the Nürburgring, passed away at only 51 years old from cancer. Such a tragic loss, yet will evoke fond memories from many following her numerous appearances on Top Gear. RIP queen...

Murray was 97 so had a good life. But 51 is far too young to go. She has driven her final lap, but sadly lost the race to Cancer. I understand this coming weeks Top Gear will be dedicated to her, possibly show highlights.

RIP Sabine

What sad news.Terrible loss at such an early age. What a driver - I seem to recall her humiliating Clarkson (in some exotic or other) at the 'Ring while driving a Transit!

It was a diesel Jag iirc...so not quite exotic!  But definitely an impressive time in a transit!

Was it really? Still pretty exotic to the likes of us and those Jag diesels could shift a bit! 😀

Edit: Checked out the episode and amazingly it was 12 years ago!

Very sad news and at only 51. She was an excellent driver and a good entertainer, always good to watch.

RIP Sabine - Lets hope Murray has got the Race Circuit in the sky ready for you
