The Honda World Superbike team has long led the way in taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by the internet in promoting their team and their sponsors, and they have just launched another innovative and interesting series of videos aimed at giving the fans a better understanding of what riding a WSBK machine entails. The Classic Corners series takes a look at five of the most spectacular corners that WSBK visits, with riders Jonathan Rea and Hiroshi Aoyama explaining what is required to get through the corner fast, and their crew talking about the demands they place on the bikes and the electronics.
The first video in the series takes a look at Turn 12 at Phillip Island, the last corner before the long straight. Below is the video from the Honda World Superbike team, and their press office's introduction to the video:
SBK Classic Corners - Episode 1
It's with great pleasure that the Honda World Superbike Team presents episode one of its exclusive, five-part SBK Classic Corners series.
This short film looks in detail at the demanding and challenging Turn 12 at Phillip Island in Australia - the long, long, LONG left-hander just before the downhill start-finish straight, which is so critical for a quick lap of the picturesque 4.448km circuit.
After yesterday's successful launch of the Ducati Desmosedici GP12 on sponsor TIM's Facebook page, Ducati have put the video of the launch up on their Youtube page for everyone who missed it the first time round. As the original was almost entirely in Italian - with the obvious exception of Nicky Hayden, who understands more Italian than he lets on, but is cautious about speaking it - Ducati have thoughtfully voiced the original over in English.
