Phillip Island promises an unforgettable weekend for all the Australian Fans who will be visiting the paddock.
In 2020 we celebrate 30 years of WorldSBK at Phillip Island, one of the most iconic circuits on the WorldSBK calendar. And it is not just the exciting on-track action that attracts thousands of fans every year, but also the unmissable off-track activities that the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship always has ready for them to enjoy trackside.
The Yamaha Finance Australian Round will not disappoint this year, as the world-famous stage of the Paddock Show will return at the Australian circuit. It promises plenty of entertainment and interaction for the fans.
With live commentary of every session from Friday morning till Sunday, sofa chats with the top riders and technical talks with key people, it will provide a true insight into WorldSBK. As the new 2020 season begins, the Paddock Show will welcome WorldSBK rookies and returnees as well as Team Managers on stage. In 2020, Australian fans will also have the opportunity to see the Australian WSBK riders on stage (including the riders in the Oceania Junior Cup, part of the Road to MotoGP™), which is a first for the Paddock Show.
When the chequered flag comes down, bikes will roll directly into parc fermé next to the Paddock Show stage. Fans will have the opportunity to listen to the top three riders’ reactions, as they will be welcomed on stage to greet the fans just a few minutes after receiving their trophies.
Once the action on-track is over, the party continues in the paddock. Saturday will be a day not to miss, as the popular Supershow will bring all WorldSBK and WorldSSP riders on stage. Fans will get the chance to meet their favourite riders for autographs and selfies. To celebrate 30 years of WorldSBK at Phillip Island, the Paddock Show will also welcome Troy Bayliss, Andrew Pitt and James Toseland on stage, three WorldSBK legends.
With additional competitions scheduled during the weekend in 2020, fans will be encouraged to test their knowledge of the Championship and will be playing to win exciting prizes such as WorldSBK branded goodies, the Official Yearbook and even access to the WorldSSP grid.
Many activities are organised this weekend for the fans to enjoy their time at WorldSBK. Fans also gets the opportunity to take part in the traditional Pit Walk on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This is a unique occasion to get a closer look at their favorite bikes and riders. On Saturday and Sunday, Motul welcomes fans at the Action Box (Boxes 18-19) to enjoy the action from the Pit Garage. Fans won’t want to miss the chance to check out the Hyundai fleet exposition in the Paddock. The Superbike Expo and a collection of Italian GP motorcycles will also be open to the public for free. For those who want to be at the heart of the action, they will have the opportunity to enjoy a ride on board of the Yamaha Oset Electric Motorbike, take a tour at the Race Simulator & GP Slot Car or even to race Karts. On top of that, fans will have the chance to discover the iconic Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit aboard a helicopter, taking a scenic flight. Kids have not been forgotten as they will be able to enjoy the action at the Kids Free Super Zone. WorldSBK souvenirs are available at the Official Merchandise Shops.
