We did it! Nürburgring names part of the track after Sabine Schmitz
What a lovely way to celebrate her racing career.
After the unfortunate passing of legendary German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, the Nurburgring has finally agreed to name a corner of the track after her.
In a bombshell announcement, the Nürburgring management has announced that it will be giving the-corner-formerly-known-as-T13-left the far superior name of… SABINE SCHMITZ KURVE! I am so happ…
As soon as the news broke out about Sabine‘a death a petition appeared on Change.org in order to name a part of the track after her.
In order for it to be taken into consideration, 50,000 signatures were needed, we have reached that number and now turn 13 of the ‘ring has been named after her.
And in case you’re wondering T13 left is the downhill left-hander which is the first corner of any official lap-record, and is the first corner of the Nordschleife, making it a fitting choice.
