Few know the Nurburgring Nordschleife like Sabine Schmitz, but she'll have a new challenge on her hands driving a Chevy Cruze in the World Touring Car Championship race there next month.

Sabine has been dethroned. The Queen of the Ring, Sabine Schmitz, was finally bested in a Larea GT1 S9 Evo track car on her home track, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, by her friend and fellow Ring instructor Ron Simons.

The ZXX, in case you've forgotten, is the same love child of Edo Competition and Zahir Rana's ZR Exotics that belly flopped into the Atlantic during the 2011 Targa Newfoundland.

The List

Any trip to the automotive mecca of Germany would not be complete without a visit to the famed Nürburgring, nor would a list called 1,001 Automotive Things To Do Before You Die. Thus, we've reached the whole point of Jessi and Patrick's trip to Germany: Drive the Nürburgring.
