It’s a long way down, but Phillip Island remains one of the favourite circuits of the world’s top riders. And all get to use the Australian track, as it hosts both World Superbike and MotoGP events at opposite ends of the racing calendar.
Set next to the Southern Ocean, the often windy circuit is a flowing blend of seven left-handers and five right-handers, with tricky, iconic sections like Lukey Heights thrown into the mix.
The 4.448km circuit, located 140km south of Melbourne, hosted its first motorcycle GP in 1989 and its first World Superbike race the following year and has been an indispensable fixture ever since.
