Page 29 of Top Gear really is back!
I just heard about this. That's so sad. The video of her barrelling that transit around the Nurburgring is a perennial favourite

"Sabine Schmitz has died of cancer :( That's such a loss :/"
i just heard on the radio, I actually gasped when they said it, she was brilliant on the show, so sad :(
That edition of Top Gear was back when I was still watching regularly and definitely had a bit of a crush on her after that.
Fifty one these days is nothing.
It's no comfort to her family and friends but she seems to have done a lot more with her fifty one than most of us have done with a lot more.
I hope she didn't have to crash the gates on the way in.

I am not young enough to know everything.
last week's off road comparison and this week's mid life crisis cars was really good, good end to a short series.
Wednesday night bbc 1 19:30 there's a 30min tribute to Sabine program, which is on iplayer now:
They do have a good chemistry, and whilst I know that Hammond nearly died once or twice, they also seem to be generally better drivers and do riskier things.

I watched the Sabine special last night, I'm not a petrol head, but I always liked the way she seemed completely bonkers, and was having a lot of fun, which was what the presenters said.
Programme probably could have been normal top gear length, but nice they put it prime time bbc1 rather than tucking it away late night bbc2.
Good start - the Eddie Kidd tribute is brilliant and emotional.
There may be dust in the room when you watch.
We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..
I started to get a bit bored this week's, but then freddie learning to be a race car driver for interesting as it went on.
The delorian piece was really good, ignore the drug deal stuff we've heard before, but the facts about the factory was new to me
