  • Photos from Phillip Island 2009

    Hey guys,
    I'm back in Melbourne from PI and I have some photos for you guys. I took them on my crackberry, so they aren't the best quality. I think some time this year I might get a digi SLR and try again next year.

    The view from Lukey Heights.



    Then we went for a walk round to one of the last turns for this view



    Next years MAD bike?



    more to come...

    Not sure if anyone on here likes 2 strokes or yamaha's for that matter, but just in case you do, you may find these photos attractive. </toungeincheek>

      last pic showing how they cram the engine into a R6 frame.


      Then there's the riders parade. in which apparently Phillip Island is the only track in which before a race they get the motoGP riders to jump into expensive old cars (austin heely's - sp?) and they slowly drive around the whole track so that the fans can get a closer look at the riders (and the fans that know some Italian can yell shit at Rossi)

      Blurry photo of Casey leading the pack.


      blurry photo of Rossi

        Rossi's fan club brought along his 100 wins banner.

          After the race, we walked along the track to the winners podium to see the winners receive their trophies and spray booze on each other.



          There was a few people around, so i didn't manage to get close enough to catch any knee sliders.



          and last but not least.....

          on the drive out of the parking lot, there was a guy in a Ducati jacket directing (not really asking) cars to pull up so they could jump start a bunch of bikes (all Ducati) that refused to start. Not sure why the wouldn't start, but there was no less than three of them sitting against the fence waiting for a boost.

                (lol at the dukes)
                Our Father, Who art at Phillip Island, Hallowed be thy name
                Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done
                In the backroads as it is on the freeway
                Give us this day our high-octane premium fuel
                And forgive us our lanesplitting
                As we forgive the four wheel drives, the volvos and the taxis
                And lead us not into gravel corners
                But deliver us from hand-held radars
                For thine is thy leather, thy denim, thy Gore-Tex and thy Kevlar
                Amen ORIGINAL POST BY DEB

                          I just got home from my first time going and it's definitely worth it.
                          The sound of the bikes through turns 11 & 12 is fucking amazing!
                          The only annoying thing was the pit reporter who was completely clueless, can't remember his name though.

                            Definitely worth the trip Emnesty! Best way to do it is book a house on the island for a week. With enough people it works out to about $150 - $200 for the week. Grandstand tickets are pretty cool, better then having to bolt to fence at 7:30 to get a good spot!

                            Xuaxace, I absolutely love that livery. I saw the helmet on the Friday and Saturday and thought it was awesome, and originally I thought the special livery was just the Red bike with the Aussie flag on the sides...but that is totally hot...in my eyes!

                              It looked soooo much better in the flesh.
