A little background...so my sister's fiance and I were talking, and he told me one of his bucket list items unfortunately had to be canceled. He and my sis were going to honeymoon in Europe, and as part of the trip, they were going to stop by the Nurburgring and get a "taxi" ride with the great Sabine! Anywho, he found out that she is no longer doing the service, but told me a funny story about how she did the thing (one of the deadliest tracks in the world) in a Transit Van once on top gear. Here ya go...quite cool. She's actually passing bikes and cars at different points haha

I saw that episode, Didn't she beat Jeremey's time who was in a Diesel sports car?

Top Gear is one of the best shows on TV.

I have done the ring on a R6 motorcycle. Great, great loop....but IMO not even close to as deadly as being on the Mountain Course of the TT on Mad Sunday coming down past Kate's cottage through Creg ny Baa.

She missed Jermey's time in the jag by ten seconds or so.

Top gear was one of the best shows on TV, but it's pretty much bland now. Ironically, their real reporting are one of the few things that are still any good. The rest of the show is pretty predictable.

Before I comment, we are still waiting on those pics from your sister. BTW, I had no idea who that chick was before I saw the video.

Lol I posted A pic in that thread of her and I, and made sure it wasn't revealing at all in the least ;D. She loved the jersey, and promptly took a digger outside of the restaurant Saturday, covering herself and it in mud. We'll see if some dry cleaning can take care of it.


As for the video...fortnight is correct. After the guy did a 9:59 second lap in a JAG, sabine said she could do better in a van, hence the challenge! Her second run ( after they stripped it down) was the 10:08 one..pretty damn impressive!

@ worm, that had to have been crazy! I read that bikes are the source of the majority of fatalities there...was it crowded when you took your lap?

You have an American phone that used the word fortnight? No one knows what I'm saying when I use that word here.

It is still better than most of the majority of stuff on tv.
