Re: Sabine Schmitz RIP

Sad to see such a brillant star to fade away so early. She was inspiration for Motorsports and made average man shy with her knowledge about the cars.

If I remember correctly, in one of the episodes before this one, she was guiding Jeremy Clarkson around Nurburgring in a Jaguar (?) and at one point she cursed at some slow drivers in front of her and said she can go faster than them "in a van".

So Top Gear put her in a van.

RIP Sabine.

She wasn't aware of the rain sometimes, just drove like in the dry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufzdL1JaEKM

Re: Sabine Schmitz RIP

Once my boys came home repeating some rubbish they heard from school - girls can’t drive! A YouTube video of the 10minutes-in-a-white-van Sabine and that was it. My boys’ re-education was complete.

Thank you Sabine for teaching my little rascals that girls can drive. Fast. . RIP

German men are not the best drivers at times either, wrecking a new Ferrari in six hours

If they want another example of how women aren't worse drivers then men ill happily demonstrate my driving skills.

My driving instructor once said I was better going backwards than forwards.
