The Lady of the [Nürburg]Ring: From 48th to 4th position in one lap

Sabine did 44 overtakings in the starting lap on the wet track of NURBURGRING. From the last position, she pushed her PORSCHE 911 GT3 R to the win

A must see video!:

Starting from the last position (due a penalty), she was the only one who bet for slick tyres on the damp track of Nürburgring, and she finally won the race.

Here is a summary video of the same race with highlights from the 20 laps. There are some sound issues, but the video worth it because was edited with race/car data, and three screens from the onboard cameras.

  • Sabine absolutely knows this track! She would be diving into corners when others were on the brakes. A great drive! Gave me goose bumps! Cheers everyone!

  • Amazing skills. 44 overtakes in 1 lap! Sounds like a great car as well.

  • Wow! Incredible driving! It's great to see that most of the cars just let her pass and left enough room - it's more difficult to pass other cars on a Swiss motorway as everyone just hogs the overtaking lane!! Also, her Porsche seemed to have better acceleration and a higher speed than the others, even the Ford GT! Was this thanks to the slick tyres?
