curva sopraelevata

I’m hoping that someone might be able to fill me in with the English for this term.

Sfrecciava sulla grande curva sopraelevata di Montlhéry.

I believe that it refers to a curve with the outside edge raised so that it can be travelled at higher speeds, and that it is also known as a curva parabolica. I think I could validly translate it literally as superelevated curve, but I suspect that it has a more common name in racing of which I remain ignorant. Perhaps something involving “cant”.

Thanks in advance for any help,
