Yes I thought it was the Nurburgring. Looked like an M3 up ahead?

Which make and model was the camera car? The driving looked to be very tidy and efficient.

The BMW ahead of the camera car does say "Ring Taxi" on the side.

Sabine is driving the white BMW M5 infront of the camera car which keeps on having bikers getting in the way.

And yes, it is the Nurburgring.

... read a recent interview with her for BMW - she reckons that the new M5 will knock 30 seconds off the 'old' ones ring time.

What a lucky girl, a life full of m cars and the most fantastic racing circuit at her beck and call ... what a job - and all she does is drive a bl**y taxi for a living
