2024 MotoGP Phillip Island Motorcycle Grand Prix Dates & Accommodation

Well-known as a favourite amongst riders, the fast-flowing Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will once again set the stage for an adrenaline-fueled weekend of two-wheeled racing action as MotoGP™ returns to its Australian home.

The Phillip Island track is a favourite with riders and spectators as the course is set against a stunning backdrop.

The 1000cc four-stroke machines in MotoGP provide one of the most compelling spectacles in the world of motorsport, nowhere more so than at Phillip Island, where top speeds regularly exceed 330 km/h.

Introduced in 2010 to replace the former 250cc intermediate class, Moto2 has proved to be a roaring success. Introduced in 2012 to replace the former 125cc apprentice class, Moto3 has become a popular and keenly competitive series where newcomers cut their teeth in close racing with battle-hardened veterans.

The bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup (OJC) is an inclusive program for young aspiring junior riders. OCJ is a Junior Road Race Academy aimed at developing Oceania’s next road racing stars, providing young riders with everything they need to take to the track.

While the world’s fastest racing on two-wheels takes centre stage at Phillip Island this October, there’s plenty to keep fans and families entertained off-track all weekend long. The Fan Forum Stage will host the riders in a series of intimate interviews while Hero Walk returns in 2024, allowing fans to get up close and personal with their racing heroes.

Sample the best Phillip Island has to offer with a range of food trucks and dining options, lose yourself in the GP Expo, a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts or let loose at one of our scheduled live music performances.

There’s heaps to keep the kids busy, too, with lawn games, outdoor activities and activations available in the new and improved Family Zone.

Join as Phillip Island roars to life this October, where the action both on and off the track will have you up and out of your seat and cheering for more.

If you fancy staying close to the action, make Phillip Island your home away from home by camping at the nearby camping grounds. With hot showers, nightly entertainment, free parking and a general store, camping doesn’t get any easier.

  • I really need to know when the superbikes are racing Im Feb 2018 as I need to book airfares asap. Anything even pencilled In yet.? It isn’t that far off. Thanks

    • Hi Teresa,

      The dates haven’t been released and I’m not aware of any ‘pencilled’ in dates other than ‘February 2018’.

      However, if you go back over the past few years, the event has typically been held on the last weekend in February, so if you want to use that as a guide, perhaps you could book flights with the option to alter the dates if you are desperate to lock them in.

      Kind regards,

    • Hi David,

      I have checked with the organisers and they advised me “entries will be open shortly”. Unfortunately, they would not provide me with a date. Check back with us and I will update the page when further information is to hand.
