About the circuit
Online Challenge number five for the MotoGP™ eSport Championship sees us heading Down Under to Phillip Island in Australia. Jump on-board local hero Jack Miller’s Alma Pramac Racing GP17 to complete the Online ‘Time Attack’ session and the fastest lap in dry conditions.
Phillip Island, the self-styled home of Australian motorsport, is steeped in motor racing tradition, with the first car races having been held there on public roads in the 1920s. The first motorcycle races took place in 1931 and a permanent track was built in 1956. The circuit fell into disrepair during the late 70s and early 80s until it was bought in 1985 and given a AUS $5m facelift. MotoGP returned in 1989 and 1990 before becoming a regular fixture once more from 1997 onwards.
The Phillip Island circuit is blessed with breathtaking scenery and beautiful ocean views and, as one of the fastest, most fluid, tracks on the calendar, it continues to provide some of the most spectacular racing in the MotoGP season.
The quickest gamer who posts the fastest lap worldwide on any platform (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) will be invited to show their skills in the second Semi-Final and fight against the best gamers in the World for a seat in the Grand Finale, held on the 16th November in Valencia during the MotoGP™ Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana.
