Si B's Evo 8 racing/passing Ring Taxi BMW M5 at the Nurburgring
Bit of an update to help those folks too thick to realise that if you start behind someone, catch them up, and finish ahead of them, you've either driven through them, or overtaken them. It's really quite simple... save your trolling for somewhere else. I'm just a normal guy, driving a quick car briskly, I don't proclaim anything more or less. Yes the car could go faster, yes I could drive better, and yes the taxi could have gone faster. I don't need Captain Obvious comments saying just as much. Any normal comments, questions or musings are welcomed however :-) Me driving my Evo 8, initially chasing then overtaking BMW's M5 Ring Taxi round the Nurburgring.

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 :)
