Queen of the Nürburgring _ RIP

Post by koimaster » March 17th 2021, 6:31pm

Tributes have flooded in for German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, who has died at the age of 51.

Widely known as the "Queen of the Nürburgring," Schmitz was one of motor racing's highest-profile female drivers and a regular guest on UK TV motoring show "Top Gear."

She died on Tuesday after a "brave fight against cancer," according to a tweet from Frikadelli Racing, a motorsport team Schmitz founded with husband Klaus Abbelen, a fellow racing driver.

"Klaus Abbelen and all relatives and friends are deeply saddened by the immeasurable loss," the tweet reads.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Christ, that really sucks. She was a fixture on the UK Top Gear. A great driver, and utterly without fear.

Yes. She was an amazing driver and a talented presenter. Total respect for her.

RIP indeed.
