The BMW Ring Taxi is back at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife - sadly, though, without Sabine Schmitz, one of it's faithful driver.

The new Ring Taxi is a standard output E90 M3, replacing the previous E60 M5, and driving duties will fall to instructors from BMW's Driving Experience school, who conduct race-driving classes at the Nürburgring.

So long, Sabine, Queen of the Ring. But as a well established pro driver, surely this isn't the last we hear from her.
