MotoGP™ is back and bigger than ever.
The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) has announced the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will make its triumphant return to Phillip Island in 2022.
Well-known as a favourite amongst riders, the fast-flowing Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will once again set the stage for a thrilling weekend, as teams push their machines to the limit from 14-16 October 2022*.
A highlight on Australia’s sporting calendar, next year’s event is shaping up to be another unmissable experience with two Aussies set to compete in the premier class.
Current Moto2TM World Championship leader, Remy Gardner, will join Jack Miller on the MotoGPTM grid, where he’ll no doubt be looking to carve out a name for himself, as he takes on the picturesque circuit which made his father, Wayne Gardner, a racing legend.
On top of that, Australian young gun Joel Kelso will make his local debut in the Moto3™ World Championship with the CIP Greenpower team.
