What a thrilling
EVENT organisers of the 2016
FIM Superbike World Champion-
ship at the Phillip Island Grand
Prix circuit have announced a three
day crowd of 61,097 over the week-
end, which represents an increase
of 7 per cent on 2015.
Honorary islander and world
champion Irishman Jonathan Rea
completed a stunning double at the
event, by narrowly winning both
22-lap races in exciting finishes.
The victories were Rea’s 30th
and 31st in the production-based
series, and he was particularly
animated on both occasions, shar-
ing triumphant wheelies with the
crowd before stopping at the back
of the circuit to celebrate with

hard in his wildcard appearance in
the World Supersport category, for
a third place podium appearance.
Circuit chief Fergus Cameron
said from the circuit’s point of view,
the three -day international event
had gone without a hitch.
“The racing was amazing, across
all classes,” he said.
Riders from across the world took
some time out on Thursday to enjoy
some fun, with a paddle board chal-
lenge on the Cowes front beach, and
a sand castle competition with the
students from Cowes Primary.
Free Friday as always was em-
braced by locals who took in a
great day of racing and enjoyed the
events and attractions on offer.
There’s a busy time ahead for the
circuit, and therefore the commu-
nity, in the two months ahead.
The circuit is now preparing for
three major events - the Historic
Cars, V8 Supercars, and the Shan-
nons Nationals, between now and
