Ducati also looks red-hot, with British Superbike champ, Scott Redding joining Chaz Davies on the Panigale V4R ; while Rea’s new garage mate, Alex Lowes, looks pretty happy on his 2020 Kawasaki.
New names on the grid include Japan’s superbike master, Takumi Takahashi with Honda and from Chili, Maximilian Scheib on a Kawasaki; while returning for another shot at world superbike stardom are the likes of Spain’s Jordi Torres and Xavi Fores, France’s Sylvain Barrier and Argentina’s Leandro Mercado.
A weekend at the world superbikes is a pure action fest of back-to-back racing from world superbike and world supersport, plus the opening round of the Australian Superbike Championships for Australian superbike, supersport and supersport300.
Another bonus with world supers, is that every three-day ticket includes free access to the paddock and Paddock Show, plus bring your bike and ride the service roads to your favourite viewing spot.
World Supers is a perfect weekend away. Phillip Island is just two hours south of Melbourne and to make it totally affordable and an awesome getaway gift, couple your ticket with on-circuit camping for four nights for just $110* extra per adult for four nights.
Situated right above Southern Loop and close to the go-kart track, Visitor’s Centre, and the History of Motorsport Display, the campground has spectacular views over Bass Straight and the circuit. Camping makes for an easy weekend – roll out of bed have your breaky, spend the day trackside for all the action, and then back to the campground for a barbie and a beer or a meal at the Visitor’s Centre.
