Exhilarating memories with CAR magazine and Sabine Schmitz
In light of the new Top Gear trailer we posted yesterday I thought it only fair to share with you one of the most frightening and exhilarating moments of my life.
As you may know, I used to work for CAR magazine…it’s where I started my career as a motoring journalist. In 2010 we were fortunate enough to have Sabine Schmitz come down to partake in our annual Performance Shootout.
Once we had wrapped for the day it was suggested that Sabine take me for a spin around Zwartkops racetrack in the BMW M3 Frozen Edition. I was amped! It took all of about 2 seconds for me to start screaming and we hadn’t even left the pits yet.
It was incredible and even now, six years later, I am still reeling from that awesome experience. And now, Sabine Schmitz is one of the new Top Gear presenter and I get to say I have not only met her, but been privileged enough to spend time in a car with her…on a racetrack!
Watch and hear all the exhilaration, fear and delight experienced by CAR magazine South Africa presenter Juliet McGuire as she is chauffeured around a racetrack by German racing star Sabine Schmitz in the rare BMW M3 Frozen Edition. – CAR magazine
