Last month, RSR Nürburgring put the Queen of the Nürburgring, Sabine Schmitz, up against Ron Simons, an instructor at the Ring (which we suppose makes him one of Sabine's subjects). In that video, the two tangled on the Ring, with the German in her personal Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Belgian in the excellent Ferrari 458 Italia. The Queen was victorious.

The next challenge saw Schmitz and Simons on the Belgian's home turf, at Spa-Francorchamps. The cars, this time around, would be equal - two BAC Monos - meaning Schmitz didn't have the luxury of using her personal vehicle. Factor in that the track was, rather appropriately for Spa, soaked, and that Simons claimed he'd never lost a race at Spa in the wet, and you'd be forgiven for think Sabine's goose was cooked.

Take a look at video below. You might be surprised by the result.

      I had to look, last year Button took the pole at Spa with 1:45.5, these two were passing McLaren 12C, GTR and 911's like they were anchored in the Mono's and did laps in the 2:45 range. I can't imagine how much faster an F1 car is to go a full minute quicker around the same track.

        It was wet,I'm sure a lot of those drivers weren't pushing too hard.

      It's funny, but I always assumed she was German. Didn't she grow up near the 'Ring?

        Sabine grew up close to the Ring and still lives there. She runs a stud farm in the area and flies her own helicopter as well. As a German you will easily notice that she is born in the Cologne/Eiffel area by her typical Cologne accent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabine_Schmitz

      I was there at SPA the day they filmed this. I was actually passed by Ron in his in-car. I was driving the white Porsche Cayman that can be seen at Stavelot. I didn't get a chance to drive with Sabine but do have some photos with her in front of her RS. RSR SPA is a top notch track day company. Highly recommended. And SPA, well SPA is is SPA. It is now my new favorite race track.

      I would love to have a track like Spa as my weekend club racing track.

      His turn into sharper elements looked a lot smoother, which is why he was ahead at the beginning, at least IMO without seeing data.

      My favorite onboard shot in the modern racing era is at Spa, between the end of the Kemmel straight and the Bus Stop chicane. Wow!
