30 Years of WSBK at the Island | SPORT | WSBK

The 2020 Australian round of the WorldSBK Championship will set a new record by being the 30th round to be held at the same circuit.

The first event, held at Phillip Island in 1990 was won by two Australians – the opening 1990 race to Peter Goddard and the second race to Robbie Phillis. The WorldSBK championship has returned to Phillip Island every year since 1990, bar 1993. No other circuit on the global tour has hosted as many rounds with riders, teams and fans flocking for three decades to the sweeping turns and thrillingly fast 4.445km circuit. Next year’s curtain-raising Australian round will be held from Friday 28 February to Sunday 1 March. Tickets will go on sale in September via Ticketek.
