Motorcycling Australia (MA) is one of Australia’s largest rider organisations, with more than 26,000 members. For more than 80 years, it has been the governing body of motorcycle sport in Australia. Since 2005, MA has accepted non-racing motorcyclists to its membership in the Riders' Division.
Mick Doohan loved Phillip Island, and he was by no means alone among the riders.
With its combination of fast straights, over 300 km/h on Gardner, going into Doohan Corner at Turn One and sweeping corners, plus such technicalities as two first-gear right-handers, the Island circuit's four-and-a-half kilometres have a touch of everything.
What the world's other tracks don't have, though, is the spectacular Bass Strait backdrop against which the world's best riders make an awesome sight as they soar over Southern Loop as they make their way up to Lukey Heights.
Phillip Island is the place to be in October.
