Breaking records at the 22nd Island Classic | Events
Records are made to be broken and this Australia Day’s big historic bike meet (January 23-25 ), the Australian Motorcycle New International Island Classic at
Phillip Island, will set some serious records with an astonishing 526 bikes entered – an increase on the 490 machines that competed in 2014; and a massive 56 races on the agenda – up from 44 previously.
The biggest roll up in the event’s 22 year history proves the popularity of the event amongst all lovers of bikes – and lovers of racing on, and off, the grid. A haul of retired greats are champing at the bit to compete at Australia’s world famous motorcycle mecca and prove they’ve still got the talent and verve of their competitive past, especially when pitted against today’s young guns.
For bike fans, Phillip Island is the place to be for a weekend steeped in motorcycle magic – history, racing and a raft of tales told that get better year after year. Special guest for the Classic is Australia’s GP crew chief extraordinaire, Jeremy Burgess, who’s spent the past 20 years steering the careers of Valentino Rossi, Mick Doohan and Wayne Gardner. Now retired, he’s making his first visit to the Classic as special guest at Friday evening’s Welcome Dinner.

You’ll have easy access to the rooftop for a panoramic view, or to the GP Paddock to visit the teams and view the bikes at close range. And you’ll enjoy Phillip Island hospitality at its best with morning tea, a buffet lunch with dessert and tea and coffee. There’s a cash bar for alcohol.
Other bonuses include a full timing feed to the Club’s flat screen tv’s, live course commentary, and a reserved car park in the support paddock.
