Everything old is new again and come 2020, nothing’s cooler than a vintage motorcycle! So time’s come to plan for next January’s International Island Classic at the spectacular Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit with tickets on sale today at www.islandclassic.com.au

Scheduled for the Australia Day long weekend, January 24-26, the Island Classic is now in its 27th year and is the largest historic motorcycle racing event in the Southern Hemisphere. The weekend honours a century of motorcycling in three action-packed days, celebrating the splendour of historic racing across so many levels, from the exotic machines to the people who race and prep them.

Plus get ready for all the action of the International Challenge, when defending champions Australia take on America and a new-look United Kingdom in four bar-banging, six-lap races. The Australian squad will be announced later this week, with the US and UK line-ups to be unveiled in coming weeks.

The International Island Classic is an affordable Australian Day long-weekend away with your mates and family, so plan now for your island escape with tickets and on-circuit camping on-sale from today at www.islandclassic.com.au. Book in advance, and save big time.

Pre-Purchase & Save

Traditionally, Australia Day long weekend sojourns in beachside locations cost a bomb! But..think again with Phillip Island’s Island Classic.

The circuit opens their grounds for camping for ticket holders, and suddenly four nights camping in a spectacular location with views out to Bass Strait, is yours for a fraction of the cost you would expect to pay.

But the trick is to buy in advance and secure your camping spot early.

Wrap your three-day event ticket in with four nights of on-circuit camping, and the cost for your Island Classic getaway – entry and camping - will be just $167 booked in advance.

Even better, bring the family, because children 15 and under are free for camping and event entry, if they are accompanied by a full-paying adult.

If camping is not your go, a pre-purchased three-day adult pass will cost $84, compared to $95 at the gate, while a three-day pre-purchased concession ticket is $54 – a saving of $16 over the gate price. Tickets are also available for individual days.

Bookings for pre-purchased general admission and camping tickets close at 12:00pm on Thursday, January 23.

Want to add some style to your weekend away? Opt for Club Classic hospitality and you’ll enjoy the entire weekend from the comfort of our air-conditioned VIP suite overlooking pit lane, with fully catered with buffet lunch, dessert, morning and afternoon tea, soft drinks and coffee.

You’ll view all the action from the Club Classic suite, be able to easily access the paddock and the outdoor panoramic rooftop view and enjoy reserved parking (one car pass for two guests).
