Event Calendar

Round 2 Bracket Racing 2022 SEASON UPDATE

The upcoming Bracket Racing event on Sunday 27th February has been rescheduled to the 5th of June at Broadford.

For an exciting addition for club racers, the Victorian Road Racing Interclub clubs have joined forces in 2022 to bring Interclub racing back to the iconic Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. We are excited to announce the addition of the 2022 Phillip Island Club Racing Festival to the calendar. The event(s) will take place on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd October 2022.

Preston MCC, Sandringham MCC, Newport Braybrook MCC, The Harley Club of Victoria, The Sidecar Club of Victoria, Gippsland Centre MCC and Newport Braybrook MCC will host a 3-day event at The Island which will include a Friday Practice facilitated by Preston MCC, Shannon’s Bracket Racing Series final round on the Saturday and finish with the final round of the Victorian Motorcycle Wreckers Victorian Interclub Championships on the Sunday, featuring the competitive club v’s club battle for the Victorian Interclub Team Shield.

The 3 day, 2-event weekend will include options for competitors to enter for 1, 2 or 3 days across two Victorian Road Racing series at club racing prices (wait what? Let me read that again). We encourage all of our people to take advantage of the track time, race the lot and make it a big one!

The event was cleverly orchestrated to get our club racers and events back to the Phillip Island Circuit after too much time away. The event(s) will be open to all members of the Interclub clubs above. If you are not a member, get yourself signed up and get on board. If you’re not entering, support your club by getting down and cheering your team on or volunteering trackside.

There will be sponsor prizes all over the place. There will be so many trophies, we’ll need a semi to get them all to the presentations that will be held on both racing days. There will be so much track time, you might want to book your Monday sickie now. If you’re a fan of racing and Phillip Island GP Circuit, it’s an event you can’t miss.

We welcome and facilitate racing from novice to A grade, inexperienced to veteran. We welcome family, friends and racing enthusiasts to join us. Spectator entry is free. It’s sure to be a special weekend.

Further information and entry links will be announced on club social and web pages, via email and on RiderNet. We will keep you all posted.
