About the circuit

Phillip Island, the self-styled home of Australian motorsport, is steeped in motor racing tradition, with the first car races having been held there on public roads in the 1920s. The first motorcycle races took place in 1931 and a permanent track was built in 1956. The circuit fell into disrepair during the late 70s and early 80s until it was bought in 1985 and given a AUS $5m facelift. MotoGP returned in 1989 and 1990 before becoming a regular fixture once more from 1997 onwards.

The Phillip Island circuit is blessed with breathtaking scenery and beautiful ocean views and, as one of the fastest, most fluid, tracks on the calendar, it continues to provide some of the most spectacular racing in the MotoGP season.

How to arrive

Phillip Island

Phillip Island Circuit is located 150 km from the Tullamarine Melbourne Int. Airport and 7 km from the Centre of Cowes.

Phillip Island Circuit

Back Beach Road
Phillip Island Victoria
Australia

www.grandprix.com.au, www.motogp.com.au

The route to the circuit from the airport is via the Tullamarine Freeway using "CityLink", through the Burnley Tunnel, onto the Monash Freeway (M1). Then follow the South Gippsland Freeway (M420) through Cranbourne and then Bass Highway (A420) to San Remo (B420), then across to Phillip Island, where the circuit is clearly signposted. Please do not forget "CityLink" is a toll road. The easiest method to pay the toll is to purchase a CityLink pass which will allow a vehicle unlimited access along CityLink on the nominated day. Hence if you are travelling to and from Phillip Island on separate days, you will be required to purchase two passes. CityLink passes may be purchased at Melbourne Airport, CityLink service centres located near the toll road or by visiting their website www.citylink.com.au or contacting CityLink directly by telephone (while in Australia) on 13 26 29.
