Frikadelli Racing has announced that German road racing sensation, Sabine Schmitz, will join team owner Klaus Abbelen, Patrick Huisman, Frank Stippler, and Porsche Junior driver, Sven Muller in the Number 30 Porsche 911 GT3.
As Sabine Schmitz will join the team for the Rolex 24 at Daytona, this means that Connor de Phillippi will not drive for Frikadelli Racing in the twice around the clock endurance classic. I really hope that Connor finds a last-minute ride for the Rolex 24 because he is a talented driver who deserves to be on the grid. Go find IMSA data from the Roar and look at the fast lap times set by Connor de Phillippi. Any team would be happy to add a driver like that to their lineup. However, I am excited to see how Sabine Schmitz will fare in the new Porsche 911 GT3 car.
“We’re amazed that we could make it happen,” said Schmitz.
To be honest, I have never heard of Sabine Schmitz, but I believe that she is going to put on a show for the fans at the Rolex 24. After doing some research, it appears that Sabine is the “Danica Patrick” of Germany. She is tons of support and the fans love her! I wish her best of luck as she attacks the high banks of Daytona International Speedway.
