The Phillip Island circuit was built in 1956 and the island is situated about 140km south-east from Melbourne. It consists of 12 turns; 7 left corners and 5 right corners, with the longest straight measuring 0.9km. The circuit offers stunning panoramic views of the ocean making it one of the most attractive circuits of the season.
By the 1980's the circuit was in dire need of renovation which took a few years. The renovated circuit was then re-opened in 1989. The tight corners and dramatic elevation changes have earned the circuit a reputation of being one of the most challenging circuits. The circuit was resurfaced at the end of 2012 which has resulted in the circuit being one of the smoothest and fastest tracks in the world.
