“The Nordschleife has so many stories to tell. It’s an unbelievable racetrack. Everybody has heard of it. It’s so famous. So many dramatic things have happened here – both bad and good. To drive a car here is such a great feeling. You are battling with the track and the weather. Sometimes it’s sunny, but with heavy rain five kilometres ahead. I've even raced in the snow here. The circuit is very long and unpredictable. It’s a challenge,” says Schmitz as she describes the track.
