A rumor coming from GTSpirit.com states that the BMW Ring Taxi at the Nurbugring might come to and end. According to the previously mentioned source, the Nürburgring management have removed all offers relating to taxi rides from the official website and they have also send an email which confirms they’re not running it this year. The company handling the popular M5 is OK Speed Marketing.

The Nürburgring’s Nordschleife is widely regarded as the most spectacular, most challenging and longest race track in the world and for years, Sabine Schmitz and her M5 have been entertaining customers looking for the ultimate thrill.

The next generation M5 is just around the corner and we hope that in 2012, we will all be able to enjoy once again the powerful M5 sedan.

Here is the email sent out to the customers inquiring about Green Hell.
