Phillip Island Circuit for Savvy V8 Supercar Fans

V8 Strip

Looking for an inexpensive option for accommodation for next weekend’s (Nov 14-16) V8 Supercar action at Phillip Island ?

The circuit has the answer and that’s to camp on track.

For V8 Supercar ticketholders, staying at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit is just $70 per adult with the added bonus, of children 14 and under free.    The flat rate of just $70 allows up to three nights camping – Friday, Saturday and Sunday – so pack your tent and spend a few days in the great outdoors, island-style. 

The big plus is your V8 adventure will be totally stress-free!   There’s no traffic jams in the morning and no entry gate line to deal with.   Just wake up, grab some breakfast, take a shower and enjoy a 100 metre walk to be trackside, surveying at your leisure the beautiful bitumen battleground.

Phillip Island’s campground is connected to the Visitor Centre, spreading out across the centre’s gardens and surrounding land.    Patrons can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in the licenced Champions Café or take a short drive into Cowes for a meal or to buy supplies.

As a special extra, campers  12 and over get a 25% discount deal at the circuit go kart track, and will be treated to the new French SODI karts that were launched last month.  Able to hit speeds of 60kmph, these karts are a racing thrill – but make sure you kart before you have a beer, as all drivers must be dry to take on the rigours of the 760m Phillip Island circuit replica track.  

The circuit has also negotiated a special ticket rate, with a 10% discount on V8 Supercar event entry tickets for all campers who buy a camp/ticket package.

Whether your Holden or Ford, Volvo or Nissan, or if the Merc is more to your liking, one thing is certain, camping is the smart option for V8 Supercar fans.

The campground opens from 7.30am on Friday November 14 through to 9am on Monday November 17.  Space is limited and is cheaper when booked in advance.   Be sure to secure your space by calling the circuit hotline on 1300 728 007 or by downloading a V8 Supercar booking form on
