SBK Classic Corners Phillip Island Video

Tuesday, July 3, 2012
The Honda World Superbike crew debuts its video series showcasing the best corners from the World SBK series. First up is Turn 12 at Phillip Island. Listen to Honda riders Jonathan Rea and Hiroshi Aoyama chat about the critical corner, a long high-speed lefthander that sets up a lap-time dropping drive down the straight. Pirelli’s Giorgio Barbier also feeds in technical data about the severe stresses imposed on the spec tires at The Island, claiming that tires can reach temperatures up to 300 degrees Celsius (572 Fahrenheit). See more in the embedded video below courtesy of Honda Racing Europe via YouTube.
