nently installed as the star exhibit in the His-
tory of Motorsport Display at Phillip Island

tween 1987 and 2003 and on board were some of
the world’s great riders including the Italian aces Val-
entino Rossi, Max Biaggi and Loris Capirossi, and
American stars Eddie Lawson and John Kocinski.
In total these sleek racing machines have won
nine World Championships, 51 Grand Prix wins
and 106 podiums. Make the time these holidays to
take in these magnificent pieces of racing history.

Super-Fast Hot Laps
For the Adrenalin junkies how about three
heart pumping ‘Hot Laps’ in a race prepared
vehicle. The circuit’s resident race car driver
will get your heart started with lift off and road
hugging turns that defy gravity as you “white
knuckle” it and carve an impression on the rug-
ged cliffs of the world famous circuit.
