Sabine: She Cooks, She Saves!

I'm sure Sabine Schmitz can cook faster than you, probably makes water boil faster too. In this clip the famously fast fraĆ¼lein of the Eiffel whips up some grub for team fabulous Frikadelli team before the most recent VLN race.

The rest of the video is 9 minutes of onboard from the team's Porsche 997 GT3 R including the race start and the incident when on the first lap of its first race, the Mercedes SLS AMG gets into a very avoidable accident. Got to love the fist pump as driver Nic Kentenich just squeezes between the Merc and the 'vette!

But of course Sabine is best know as cab driver. Here she is hacking in a 997 GT3 RS MkII during a Gentlemen Driver Club track day. All is well up to about 8:15 minutes in when she gets to Pflanzgarten.

Now, if you've driven at the 'ring, you know exactly how scary that section of the track is so you can imagine what losing the rear of any car, never mind a "junk on the trunk" 911, at that speed must feel like. I'm sure the video does not do that feeling justice, you have to at least have driven that particular roller coaster section.

"Check the tires" she says...I say check the passenger seat before the next client.

(let me put in a plug for, if you are into N-ring spy pix and videos it needs to be on your list!)


  1. Probably one of the best saves I've seen.

  2. I agree with the post above... a wonderful save. I'm always amazed at the speed she carries when passing other cars. Sabine is simply a great driver.

  3. Hmmm that must have been scary.

    All I know is that I am past 180kmh at that place with a small hatchback.
