Long live a weekend of motorcycles and mates.

Australian Motorcylce Grand Prix Circuit

The Phillip Island race track is a sacred place for any fan of two wheels. Where epic turns are cast against a stunning backdrop. World class athletes race against gravity where mates now unite at the track and on the journey that leads them there. The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is a pilgrimage to the place motorcycles belong. This is Motorcycle Racing's Best Address.
