Doohan and Beattie thrill passengers at Phillip Island

Doohan and Beattie thrill passengers at Phillip Island

Ahead of next month’s Australian Grand Prix, five-time 500cc World Champion Mick Doohan and compatriot Daryl Beattie have been offering the unique experience of taking pillion passengers around the legendary Phillip Island circuit.

Riding at speed around Phillip Island is not an experience many will enjoy, not least when on-board the same machine as the likes of Doohan or Beattie. However, that is exactly what happened for several lucky passengers last Tuesday as the likes of Kate Peck, Ambassador for the 2014 Australian Grand Prix, enjoyed the sights, sounds and feeling of the venue courtesy of a Mick Doohan Repsol Honda Team machine.

Also part of the occasion were chef Adam D’Sylva, ex AFL footballer Campbell Brown and V8 Supercars star Rick Kelly, all ahead of the race on Sunday 19 October.

See the accompanying video to sample just what it is like to ride ‘The Island’ with the legend that is Mick Doohan, hitting speeds of up to 280 kilometres per hour.
