Smile There is only one 'the pass' in modern Superbike racing

EDIT - The answer can be found at https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=12

On another thread here I briefly mentioned about the best pass most everyone has ever seen in the modern racing era.

I wonder if anyone here knows what I'm talking about. Post what you think it is. No need to cheat. I'll post the answer in a day or so. Faster if this gets lots of replies.

The title of this thread is a quote straight from an article discussing this racing pass. So I'm not alone in rating it the best.

I saw this live actually. Crazy. And I can't believe it, but I remembered the name of the rider and the track it took place at too.

Sadly, I can't find a video showing "the pass".

One that off the top of my head is Rossi passing Lorenzo at Catalunya in 09.

Rossi passing stoner down the corkscrew was good also...

I'm pretty new to the racing, but I vote this one too. I'd seen it before in Faster or Fastest, can't remember which.
