That was a great episode. I still have it on my DVR so my other German car loving friends can see it.

For those that have not seen it, please watch it. It is a great piece to learn some fun facts from about
the way our MBs became what they are now.

I was surprised they made zero mention of Sabine Schmitz, Queen of the Ring.
The Pistenklause restaurant (roughly translates to race track pub) they were eating at with all the cool racing memorabilia and the hotel is where she grew up. Her family build / owns the place since 1947.
No racing fan coming through the area should miss it.

I love Sabine.

She is scary fast around the 'Ring". The half dozen or so times I saw her on Top Gear UK she was fast, funny and easy on the eyes.
