“This new weekend of motorsport action is going to be a major winner for race fans and will provide a real boost for businesses across the Bass Coast.”
“We’ll see top drivers and riders in multiple championships races on a circuit that fans love to come to.”
Quote attributable to Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle
“This is a fantastic initiative of AGPC and the Victorian Government to get this event off the ground. The cross-discipline event worked really well with Supercars in Darwin recently and it’s great to be able to race at Phillip Island on the traditional MotoGP weekend.”
‘’Phillip Island is recognised as one of the world’s best motorcycle racing tracks and is one of the ASBK rider’s favourite. The Australian Superbikes are sure to put on some great racing for motorcycle fans and I’m sure we will create some new fans for ASBK along the way.’’
Quotes attributable to Australian Grand Prix Corporation CEO Andrew Westacott
“What a bonanza to have championship rounds of Supercars leading into Bathurst and one of the final rounds of the Australian Superbike Championship.”
“Phillip Island has been starved of motorsport and this event will have something for everyone, bringing much-needed visitation to the Island and surrounding communities.”
“I encourage all who can to come along and enjoy all that this region showcases, including some of Australia’s best natural experiences and culinary offerings.”
