It has been just shy of 30 months since the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship made its way down under to race at the prestigious Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.
On the brink of a two-year Superbike World Championship hiatus, we are eager as ever to announce that tickets for the 2022 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship season finale being held at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit on November 18th to 20th are now on-sale.
In what is set to be an end of year motorsport bonanza with the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix being held only one-month prior, Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit General Manager David Bennett said he is confident that ticket sales will return strong with fans eager to witness all the action.
“It has been 26 years since Phillip Island last held a Superbike World Championship season finale, dating back to 1996, and I think the excitement in that alone will certainly draw a significant crowd.” Mr Bennett said.
“Watching any form of motorsport live and in person is truly an experience you can’t match watching from home, and judging by how the 2022 Superbike World Championship has gone so far after just five rounds, we truly believe the season finale will deliver on all fronts.”
Spectators will also get the chance to see ASBK – Australian Superbike Championship categories of Superbike, Supersport, and Supersport 300.
“We are always thrilled to welcome Australian categories to the WorldSBK paddock, and offering riders an opportunity to once again race on a world stage.” Bennett said.
“And to top the action and excitement off, spectators will get to celebrate together as we crown the 2022 Superbike and Supersport World Champions at one of the most iconic circuits on the calendar – it doesn’t get much better than that.”
The drawcard difference of WorldSBK is the unmatched level of spectator access, with all 3-Day ticket holders and VIP hospitality guests getting free WorldSBK paddock access to provide an experience like no other.
The ever-popular Paddock Show will also return in 2022, giving spectators non-stop on-stage entertainment each day, including superscreen coverage and live commentary of all track action, interviews, autograph sessions, chat shows, and much more.
Exclusive to WorldSBK – Parc Ferme is located in the centre of the paddock and open to all 3-Day General Admission ticket holders, giving spectators the chance to be up close and personal with the top three riders from Superpole sessions and all races.
It’s not a season finale without an exclusive bar experience on offer! The new Holeshot offering will include 3-Day access to an exclusive outdoor bar experience, 3-day WorldSBK paddock access, prime viewing location overlooking Turn 1, big screen viewing, bike parking, and garden furniture.
And for those wishing to increase their WorldSBK experience, Camping Packages are also now on-sale, and VIP Corporate Hospitality packages are set to go on-sale next Friday, 29th July.
We also welcome back our exhibition and trade stall located along Gardner Straight, which will host a number of motorcycle brands, companies, and accessories covering all levels of motorsport enthusiasts needs.
What makes the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship season finale even more exciting, is the inclusion of our Australian riders Oliver Bayliss and Benjamin Currie competing in the World Supersport Championship.
“3-time Superbike World Champion Troy Bayliss is no doubt an Aussie house-hold favourite across the WorldSBK paddock, and it fantastic to see young Oli following closely in his Father’s footsteps in 2022 as he joins the World Supersport Championship.” Mr Bennett said.
“Thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been watching Oli Bayliss and Ben Currie race on the world stage this year, and now we get to witness and cheer on their hard-work and success firsthand at home – you simply can’t miss that!”
