SBK Classic Corners, Episode Three: Geer Timmer in Assen
SBK Classic Corners, Episode Three: Geer Timmer in Assen

Here we are again the best corners of the calendar of the World Superbike Championship. This week at SBK Classic Corners we continue our route to the lowlands of Holland where the classic is located Assen layout. A circuit that since its entry into the world of the Grand Prix has not once missed its annual appointment with these events. Today, the guys from Honda World Superbike Team have chosen Geer Timmer as the most important point.

It is also the home and operations center of one of SBK's most successful teams, a few kilometers from Assen is the headquarters of the team Have kate. It is therefore always to be expected a great role from its pilots, even when everything is against you. There has not been a round in the Netherlands in which one of his bikes has not been at the top, and Jonathan Rea knows it very well. As expected, Ronald participates this time with his two drivers, Rea and Hiroshi Aoyama, and Peter Schorer, representing the circuit.

This chicanne has certainly witnessed the most important overtaking of each race that has been held on the premises. Without going any further, you will remember the Moto3 test in which Maverick ViƱales beat Sandro Cortese, Danny Kent and Luis Salom in precisely this corner. Perhaps the most grown of the place continue criticizing the current Assen, but they will not be able to deny that it is still a magical place prone to carts.

Extra, James Toseland vs Troy Bayliss in 2007

The most envied machines of the time, two Superbike world champions at their controls and this wonderful Assen circuit as the setting.
