LAPPED BY DEATH
Motor racer Sabine Schmitz has died after a battle with cancer aged 51. An expert on the Nurburgring course, she went viral when she appeared on Top Gear and drove round the Nurburgring in a van. When Jeremy Clarkson left Top Gear, the Guardian wrote a jokey article that Schmitz should takeover as one of the hosts, and the BBC thought that was a great idea, employing here from 2016 to 2018. She was a pick for three teams, ARSE-IN-HOLE, Chelski Pensioners and Southerners Stiffs.
