Soak up the atmosphere and take a trip down memory lane as you get up close and personal with over 400 historic racing cars in period correct liveries across 11 different Motorsport Australia sanctioned categories.

Enjoy full access that will see you walking through the garages, talking to the drivers, touching the cars and soaking in the wonderful sounds and aromas of yesteryear.

With multiple clear and visible spectator viewing points around the circuit, you won’t miss a second of the action. There’s nothing quite like the thunder of these historic machines attacking the Phillip Island Circuit!

Also on offer will be over 1,000 stunning car club vehicles on display in the outer circuit, as well as our merchandise hall, food stands, and food trucks.

See historic Group A and Group C machines from the 70’s 80’s and 90’s as well as Formula 5000, Historic F1, Le Mans Group C cars, Formula Ford, Formula Holden and so much more.

Highlights of this year’s event will see a strong contingent of McLaren Formula 5000 and Can-Am cars as well as a gaggle of 2.0 Litre Supertourers from the 90s.

See Steven Richards drive his Dad Jim’s Nissan Skyline HR31 in the Group C and A category alongside another factory Nissan HR31. Greg Murphy will also be back at the Phillip Island Classic this year driving a Honda Accord 2.0 Litre Supertourer from New Zealand!

And be there to celebrate 50 years of the mighty L34 Torana with various static displays and on track events alongside a spectacular collection of L34’s at the Cowes Car Show on Friday night.

    • Hi Margaret,

      Having recently updated the information on my page, i couldn’t see anything that would indicate that there will be any changes to the event. It really does depend on the VIC government changing their COVID restrictions and also if the event complies with the COVID safe policies.

      Since the official website has stated that no spectators will be allowed at the event for at least a few months now, i don’t really know if there is enough time to get things ready for spectators if the circumstances change.

      Nevertheless, i am checking on the event on a weekly basis and will update the page with anything new i find out.

      Fingers crossed all goes ahead and we can all get back to a sense of normality.


    • Hi Pete,

      The Grandeur Club is a permanent, climate controlled, floor to ceiling glass fronted pit roof suite where you can sit back and relax in comfort and style whilst overlooking all the action on Pit Lane, the Start/Finish Line and Gardner Straight.

      For pricing and availability, you will need to contact the circuit on (03) 5952 2710.

      Best regards,

  • Hi, I am keen to get a group booking together for around 10 people coming from WA and NZ (to be confirmed) for the 2017 event. Looking for suggestions for a house or some apartments that are close to track or a shuttle bus system and bars and restaurants. What do you recommend?

    • Hi Mike, thanks for contacting us.

      Phillip Island is a small island, so any location you stay on the island will only be 10-15 minutes max to get to the circuit.

      That said, there are only a couple of lodging options that can accommodate up to 10 people. I have listed them here for you:
      1. Relax at Red Rocks – Located at Cowes on the north of the island, but has a number of bunk beds, full kitchen and separate living space.
      2. Kakalula – Also located at Cowes, with a number of twin, sofa and bunk beds, with kitchen and lounge.

      There are no shuttle bus services that run regularly on the island, so my best recommendation is to book your own mini-bus to get around the island. I have attached a link here for car hire in Victoria.

      As for bars and restaurants, Rusty Water Brewery Restaurant & Bar on the east of the island is good for a larger group and I personally love Gullivers Wine Bar & Eatery on the north of the island.

      I hope this is of assistance to you. I will update our page on the Phillip Island Classic as soon as the dates are confirmed for 2017.
