Phillip Island Racetrack, Victoria, Australia

Currently holding regular events for V8 Supercars and Superbikes, Phillip Island Circuits’ roots go all the way back to 1928 when it was a dust track and was some 16km in length, although not at its current location.

The current 4.5 km circuit has had many ups and downs, a bit like its elevation changes, with land maintenance and financial woes besetting what could have been a fine history. Several closures and re-openings later, the World Motorcycling Championship finally brought some stability to the circuit in 1989.
