Provisional MotoGP Calendar Announced 

Phillip Island will roar to life in 2022

MotoGP™ is back and bigger than ever.

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) is proud to announce the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will make its triumphant return to Phillip Island in 2022.

Well-known as a favourite amongst riders, the fast-flowing Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will once again set the stage for a thrilling weekend, as teams push their machines to the limit from 14-16 October 2022.

A highlight on Australia’s sporting calendar, next year’s event is shaping up to be another unmissable experience with two Aussies set to compete in the premier class.

Current Moto2TM World Championship leader, Remy Gardner, will join Jack Miller on the MotoGPTM grid, where he’ll no doubt be looking to carve out a name for himself, as he takes on the picturesque circuit which made his father, Wayne Gardner, a racing legend.

On top of that, Australian young gun Joel Kelso will make his local debut in the Moto3™ World Championship with the CIP Greenpower team.

Keep your ATDW listing active

Here’s why ...

One maintained listing on the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse automatically feeds into a range of travel and event websites including:
  • Increase your online exposure, (even now as people are researching their next getaway)
  • Generate leads directly to your website, booking platform and social media
  • Improve your search engine optimisation. (SEO)
  • There is no cost to create an ATDW listing (when using a coupon code from DPI)
All you need to do is renew your listing before it expires. (ATDW will notify you)

What happens when your listing expires?
LOADS - none of it good!

Please don't ignore your renewal notice. An expired listing breaks all the links where your business was mentioned on, on our regional websites, on blogs and social media mentions and means starting again with a new listing! (not good for your SEO - terrible for everyone's admin load)
Have you checked your listing recently and does it need updating?
