    Re: BMW M5 Nurburgring Taxi crashes hard.

    I wonder if it was carrying passengers at the time.

    Is Sabine still driving the taxi?

    This is also the reason I would never take a ride in one. Smiley Just remember the Rodas/Walker accident (I know this is different but...). I rode with Jochen Albig, Walter Röhrl and Lars Kern. Wonderful and talented drivers but I would have never sat next to them on the Nordschleife. Call me a pussy. Smiley Smiley

    Glad to read that there were no serious injuries, but the mention that the car "might" be a total loss seemed a bit out of place. Did the author see the accompanying picture?

    This accident has happened on the 27th of October.

    I had a ride with Sabine Schmitz, unforgettable experience. Great fun. Amazing control of the car (M5 e60) and knowledge of the Ring.

    In 2005 I had a ride in a CGT on the NR. Pilot was Horst von Saurma. Was I afraid? Absolutely not! Check out the pics below and from my smile you can see how positively excited I was. An absolutely unforgettable experience!

    Re: BMW M5 Nurburgring Taxi crashes hard.

    Gregor, nice to see you again. kiss Remember Weissach test track and that rear tire with the "detached" tread on that 911 and how we stopped the driver from taking off in the last second? Now just imagine you would have been in such a car on the Nordschleife. angry Just saying... I do not like driving with others, I need to be in control of A. the car and B. the driver. This means: My car and me or a different car I checked as good as possible for damages and...me again. 

    What about that 997 Turbo S Cab you wanted? You can PM me if you want.

    Felt entirely safe guess not; at the beginning was almost frightening then once understood she (Sabine) knew what she was doing it was great fun. The main issue in the taxi rides are the traffic/other cars which can be an unpredictable element and contribute to potentially dangerous situations .
