Sabine Schmitz RIP

Bit of a surprise, but former Top Gear presenter Sabine Schmitz - famous for being the only woman to win the Nurburgring 24 Hours - has died aged 51

"I can drive faster than you in a van".

Not really a surprise (she's had cancer since 2017) but very sad.

She was a great character

A surprise to me as I didn't know that plus some types are survivable. Would have been less surprising if she was 81.

RIP

Didn't know she had cancer.

She seemed to come across well on the TV and skilled at the wheel.

Very sad at just 51 - on that basis I'd have been gone 13 years ago & I've enjoyed most of those .....

Although ive already posted above,

I know its really silly, but i am quite upset that Sabine has left us, i knew she had cancer, but for how long i didnt know

She was an enigmatic personality, who oozed sex appeal (well for me she did!)

She was quite obviously a very good driver, especially on the ring, and those words of "I can drive faster than you in a van".
will always be in my head, with that fantastic Germanic accent,

She really was a babe, and die at 51, is so desperately sad

Very sad. My son met her on a couple of occasions. Stayed at her parents hotel the last time he was there.

Sad news this and I had no idea she had cancer

She'll be clipping the apex and setting quick lap times in the great race track in the sky

Rest in peace Sabine
