SBK Classic Corners Imola Video
Thursday, July 26, 2012
The Honda World Superbike
crew returns for the second installment of its World SBK Classic Corners Series. Round 2 focuses on the Enzo Ferrari circuit at Imola and its Acque Minerali corner. Site of the critical moment in the epic 2002 SBK title fight between Colin Edwards and Troy Bayliss
, the high-speed Acque Minerali features a dramatic elevation change dropping down into sharp right-hand corner followed by an uphill climb and direction change.
“What you see on TV doesn’t do this place justice,” says Honda’s SBK ace, Jonathan Rea
. ”It really is the bike’s on the nose on the way down, and then you’re fighting wheelies on the way up.”
