Yes totally shocked to hear this news, my first memory was of her beating Clarkson in a Transit around the Ring.
IIRC Clarkson was in a car, she was in a van :(

Sad news indeed.

She was a hell of a driver and came across as good fun.

51 is far too young, very very sad.

At least she was able to spend her life doing what she loved.

Clarkson was in a diesel s-type Jag, but I stand corrected, just watched it again but unable to post the link..... he won BUT she still humbled him tho in a Transit, massive talent to do that. RIP.

Very fitting, It's only right really. She's part of the Ring as much as the Ring is part of her.

Top Gear will pay tribute to Queen of the Nürburgring Sabine Schmitz, who died last month aged 51, with a half-hour special.
it was on BBC 1 last Sunday but it will be broadcast at 7:30pm on BBC One on Wednesday
(it is also on BBC iPlayer)
