10 Women Who Know More About Cars Than You

Sabine Schmitz

Known For: BMW Ring Taxi Driver

You know that little test track called the Nüburgring? Yeah, well, Sabine Schmitz grew up in the town where that track is located, Nürburg. She also grew up in her mother's hotel, one of few, where plenty of former Grand Prix drivers like Nelson Piquet would stay. Because of this fast atmosphere, she decided at the age of 13 that she wanted to be a driver, as well. Despite the 18-year-old minimum age to drive the test, Schmitz made her first lap in her mom's BMW, when she was 17. Decades later, she's won 45 races on the Nordschleife with BMW. Her favorite car is the M5, which she now uses for her job as a BMW Ring Taxi Driver.
