Phillip Island is setting up for a big weekend of WSBK action in February.

Tickets go on sale today for the opening round of the 2012 Superbike World Championship, next February 24-26, at Victoria’s thrilling Phillip Island.

With the 2012 grid for World Supers firming up – including newly crowned world champion Carlos Checa, Jonathan Rea, Leon Haslam and Marco Melandri – racing will be first class.

So rally your mates, book your tickets and a campsite and plan to be at the greatest production race on earth at Australia’s awesome 4.445km island circuit.

It’s super easy to book. Go to or ring the SBK toll free Hotline on 1 300 728 007.

World Supers is known for its super friendly atmosphere and six superscreens to ensure great viewing from whatever vantage point. Bring your bike to the circuit, cruise the spectator areas, find a favourite spot, park your machine, sit back and enjoy the action.

And you can move from Gardner Straight to Siberia to Lukey Heights at your pleasure, on your own set of wheels.

If camping is your go, then sleep trackside. The circuit campground is just metres from the bitumen battleground, above Southern Loop, and is priced at just $100 for four nights with kids 15 and under free.

Pricing for world supers is also affordable. General admission (GA) family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) are priced to allow 2 children, 15 and under, to come for free.

There’s lots of reasons to buy in advance. You’ll save dollars on all GA tickets purchased in advance – for instance, a three day GA bought in advance is $75 compared to $90 at the gate.

If you purchase a three day pass before December 16 2011 you will go into the draw to be one of four lucky winners to be on the start grid for race one of the world supers.

And there’s a great freebie offer for early bookers with all three day pass holders invited to Free Paddock Friday with access to the paddock on Friday morning and an invite to the rider autograph signing session.

Get organised with your mates, and if you book seven tickets in advance you will get one for free.

Make a holiday of the supers – and get three big days at the races for your entire family (2 adults and 2 children* or 1 adult and 3 children*) for $270* advance purchase.

Just want a weekend away for you and your mates – go for the three day pass – $135 advance

Can only squeeze in one day at the track? – $75 advance

Access to all three superbike viewing locations, all undercover, all licensed (cash bar) and all sites near a superscreen. Get three Bar SBK locations – Doohan Corner, Siberia, Lukey Heights for $250 per person advance

For $260 in advance get yourself a grandstand seat right on Gardner Straight, right above the start line. Ring now on the toll free Hot Line 1300 728 007 to choose a grandstand seat.

Handling fees from $7.50 apply to pre-purchased GA, Grandstand and Bar SBK tickets. Please note children aged 5-15, with age 4 and under free.
