Race Track Facts
Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is a 4.4 km circuit and features 12 corners.
This high speed and flowing Grand Prix circuit is rated as the 2nd most famous track in Australia, only surpassed by Mount Panorama at Bathurst for sheer speed and driving challenge. The 900 metre Gardner straight leads to a flowing high speed first corner dropping into the Southern Loop. With exciting undulations and bordered by the picturesque cliffs above Bass Straight, this special one-off event provides an exhilarating performance driving experience at a world class racing venue.
Motor racing on Phillip Island dates back to 1928 where local roads were cordoned off for racing events. In 1988, the current circuit was refurbished for Australia’s very first International Motorcycle Grand Prix. The 1989 event proved to be a huge success and famously won by Aussie Wayne Gardner. The Superbike World Championship followed shortly after, moving to Phillip Island in 1990.
