Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will drop your jaw and dazzle your eyes. This is your chance to experience the iconic venue in the flesh.

Let rip in a Go Kart on the 750mt scale replica Grand Prix track. Experience this world renowned layout like so many of the past and current World Champions have. With individual lap time print-outs you can challenge yourself against the clock and take away a record of your performance. Tandem karts are also available so the whole family can enjoy the thrill.

Or buckle in for the real deal; an adrenalin-amping triple Hot Lap lightning ride around the Phillip Island Circuit. In race trim cars and in the hands of an experienced race driver, this is truly an unforgettable experience.

Follow in the footsteps of motorcycle racing champions on a Guided Circuit Tour. This allows you exclusive access to all sorts of off-limits areas trackside, including a MotoGP sound simulation in the overpass, Race Control where dramatic replay vision is shown, Media Centre, Pit lane, Pit Roof and where every racer would love to finish - the winner's podium being sprayed with champagne!

Revisit the heart-pumping history of the venue within the Visitor Centre's History of Motorsport Display. Share the crazy adventures of pioneering racers who blazed a dusty, muddy and frequently dangerous trail for today's international superstars. Ogle at real life examples of the sleek machines they raced, including vintage, classic and contemporary cars and bikes.

Test your skills on the GP Slot Car track or just relax with a latte and lunch in the Champion's Café and take a stroll in the tranquil water gardens with views over the track. Don't forget the Gift Shop overflowing with racing memorabilia just perfect for capturing the spirit and excitement of your experience.
