BMW Ring Taxi - A Lap With Sabine Schmitz
This is a lap of the "Green Hell" with Sabine Schmitz on the 5th of
September 2010. It was great to have Sabine as our driver, and a huge
thanks to her and BMW RingTaxi for the thrill of being driven at high speed
on a track that takes many years to learn. We had so much fun, and highly
recommend it to anyone going to Germany, that likes the Nurburgring, and
isn't game enough to bring their own car, or hire a track day car. And we
can't help but congratulate Sabine for saying the line "I tell you
something, I could do that lap time in a van", which ultimately led to
Jeremy Clarkson pretty much being beaten around the 'ring by Sabine in a
diesel Ford Transit van. I hope to come back in a few years and do it
again! Worth flying from Australia for :)
Nurburgring Nordschleife BMW E60 M5 Ring Taxi
Here's video of our ride on the BMW Ring Taxi that runs around the
Nordschleife portion of the Nurbugring track in Germany. It was an
incredibly busy Sunday with multiple track closures due to many accidents.
The video really doesn't do justice to the speed and power of the M5. Its
still fun to watch anyway.
