Since the 1930’s racecar drivers from all origins have tried to set new records on the Nurburgring. Although only very few ever could match Sabine Schmitz. In the years 1996 and 97 she won the 24 hour race as the first woman ever and therefore earned the title “Queen of the Nurburgring”.

Electric-powered cars are now the rage. Tesla’s market capitalization is seven times larger than that of General Motors and fourteen times larger than Ford’s, though it builds a fraction of the vehicles that those companies do.
