One of the most iconic turns in all of motor racing can be found at Monza. The Honda SBK team shows us what it's all about.
Some racing circuits are more famous than others, but even beyond that, some corners stand as veritable icons of motor racing. Turns like the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca, Eau Rouge at Spa and of course the Parabolica at Monza. The Autodromo Nazionale Monza was built way back in 1922 and stands as one of the most famous race tracks in Italy, if not the world. Several of the top racing series compete there, including Formula One, the World Touring Car Championship and the SBK Superbike World Championship.
At the end of the start/finish straight at Monza sits the Parabolica, an incredibly long sweeping right corner that takes drivers (or riders) off the straightaway, up the hill and into a series of chicanes. In this three-minute video clip, the Castrol Honda World Superbike Team shows us what Parabolica is all about.
