Today I was saddened to learn that Sabine Schmitz passed away after an extended struggle with cancer. The first hot lap of the Nürburgring I can remember watching was Sabine driving the BMW M5 “Ring Taxi.” It seemed somehow appropriate to sim race a few laps of the Nordschleife with a BMW M6 GT3 in her honor. My first lap was just okay, and in my head I heard Sabine’s voice say, “I do that lap time in a VAN” so after putting together some good laps, I switched to the only van in Gran Turismo Sport (VW Sambabus Typ 2) and ran the ring one more time. We’ll miss the Queen of the Nürburgring.
