CURVA BIASSONO

Originally, in 1922, it was called Curva Grande, for the large radius and its length. Then in 1927 it was renamed Curva Biassono due to its proximity with the homonymous country .
In the following years,we continued to call the curve by her first name. Only recently, it has finally acquired its second name.

A long right turn from the very large radius (300 meters). You get there in full acceleration from the first chicane and it takes a good dose of courage to drive it at full speed!
