Description:
Sabine Schmitz

The "Queen of the Nürburgring" ... she is also sometimes called "The fastest taxi driver in the world", where she'll take 3 passengers on a wild ride through the entire track in a BMW M5, at incredible speeds, just on the edge of out of control.

She gained popularity amongst Car TV show viewers when she was featured on Top Gear, giving the host some training on how to attack the track in a diesel Jaguar... after a LOT of practice, the host managed to complete one circuit of the track in 9 minutes, 59 seconds. When she saw the time he put down, she simply said, "I could do that laptime in a van", then got in the Jaguar, her first time around the track in that car, and she beat his best time by over 45 seconds.

Remember that "van" quote? Well, the TV show, Top Gear, took her up on it, and provided her with a bone-stock diesel 136 hp Ford Transit van. After some practice, some weight reductions, and a few other ways to try to lower the time, she managed to complete the circuit in 10 minutes, 8 seconds, only 9 seconds shy of the goal. Pretty fucking amazing.

#2, The link in the description has a link to a full-length video of an entire run through the course, with an older M5.

Apparently, Sabine is also a two-time winner of the Nürburgring 24h... which really isn't a suprise. She went by her maiden name, then, "Reck".

I really should have posted Sabine during that Erin Crocker/Danica Patrick debate we had going on, because THIS woman can drive with the best of them, probably BETTER than the best of them.

#7, She's not done up at ALL in this image. No makeup, and hasn't really done anything with her hair other than pull it back. Watch her in the Top Gear videoclip where she's driving the Ford Transit, and you'll see that she's actually quite cute ^_^
