Tackling Lukey Heights: The locals´ guide

Tackling Lukey Heights: The locals´ guide

motogp.com gets the insight of local trio, Casey Stoner, Chris Vermeulen and Anthony West, on how to tackle the famous Lukey Heights section at Phillip Island.

Lukey Heights is named after Melbourne businessman, racing driver and former Phillip Island circuit owner Len Lukey - and is one of the Australian track´s key landmarks.

It comprises a long left-hander leading to a blind crest, followed by a tricky downhill run and a challenging hairpin which leads onto the crucial final section of the circuit.

A perfect example of the demanding nature of the Australian track, Lukey Heights is a true rider-favourite, requiring sharp riding and a perfectly balanced bike - as explained by 2007 World Champion Casey Stoner, Kawasaki rain-specialist Anthony West and Rizla Suzuki´s ever-popular Chris Vermeulen.
