Honda World Superbike Corners, Episode 5
The fifth and final installation of Honda World Superbike’s “Classic Corners” takes viewers to the famed Parabolica at Monza in Italy.
Monza, one of the most iconic race tracks in all disciplines of motorsports that was built in 1922, is known for this famed corner, which is the final one leading into the track’s one kilometer start-finish straight.
Honda World Superbike says the Parabolica starts as a relatively tight right-hander at the end of the straight following the Ascari chicane, but, as the corner develops, its radius increases allowing the Superbike riders to catapult their machines on to another lap or towards the finish line.
In this episode, current Honda World Superbike rider Jonathan Rea explains the cover, with further anaylsis covered by Pirelli’s Giorgio Barbier and Eurosport commentator Jack Burnicle.
The SBK Classic Corners series shows footage and provides commentary on some of the most iconic corners in World Superbike, all of them currently on the WSBK calendar: Turn 12 at Phillip Island, Acque Minerali at Imola, Gert Timmer at Assen, Craner Curves at Donington, and the final one listed above, Parabolica at Monza.
