Phillip Island Clasic

Discussion in 'VIC' started by Clemo, Jan 23, 2012.

  1. It looks like I will be commitment free most of this weekend so I would like to go check this out.
    Anyone interested in riding down? The weather looks like it will be better on Saturday but Sunday does not look to bad either.

  2. tempting Clemo but already committed ........ bugger it
  3. it's a good day out Clemo, you get to ride around the track (just like the supers) your entry fee gets you access all areas.. take a camera and if you spot an old fart on a Honda Shadow .. it's most probably me..

    Some blurb copied and pasted from the Phillip Island website...

    January 27 - 29 International Island Classic
    The AMCN international Island Classic is in it's 19th consecutive year and is Australia's largest historic motorcycle race and the third largest motorcycling event on the Australian calendar behind the MotoGP and World Superbike events.

    The event features an international challenge fiercely contested between Australia, The UK and New Zealand along with a points score challenge for the perpetual Phil Irving trophy.
  11. just called to clarify what I read 'somewhere' this weekend buy tickets at the door, no AMEX nor DINERS accepted, can ride 'around' the track to find a 'perfect spot' this is my first time for this event so thought I'd ask.
  12. Catering is a bit limited, but you can still buy your Wild Turkeys and a burger near the main straight, and the cafe is open near the pits,

    The pits and roof are normally FREE entry so enjoy ya day ...
  13. Awesome thaks for clarifying that goddie. We might even be able to get pass outs and head into cows and get some fish and chips or something similar. Should be a great day :D
  14. Going down with a mate on Saturday!!! Should be heaps of fun.
  15. fixed it for ya, reckon the chippes might taste better too:-s

  16. Will be heading down on Saturday in the car though. Taking the wife & boys for their first taste of bike racing. Counts as a "family day" for the wife so win/win. Should be a nice day out.
