PHILLIP ISLAND TO HOST 2022 WORLD SUPERBIKE SEASON FINALE
Victoria’s Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit returns to the world superbike calendar in 2022, with Australia to host the season finale of the 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship from 18 – 20 November.
Victoria’s thrilling 4.445 km Phillip Island Circuit, considered by many in the paddock as their favourite track in the world, has for 14 years launched the world’s leading production bike championship. However, this November Phillip Island will stage the final curtain call and, if the title fight goes down to the wire as it did in 2021, we could be set for a scintillating season-decider.
Fresh off the back of the Indonesian round just the week prior, World Superbike and World Supersport teams, including Australia’s Oli Bayliss and Ben Currie who will compete in the World Supersport Championship, will head down under, and will be joined by the leading national classes of Australian Superbike, Australian Supersport and Australian Supersport 300 for the Island’s 2022 World Superbike event.
It is expected that the Phillip Island round of the World Superbike Championship will return to its traditional timeslot as the season opener in 2023.
Tickets for the 2022 event will go on sale later in the year. Register your interest now for ticketing, hospitality, or to become a volunteer official, via www.worldsbk.com.au.
