The iconic Phillip Island Grand Prix has just been resurfaced after 12 years. This weekend will be the first time riders get the chance to test out the new surface.
As is often the case with fresh tarmac they offer and incredible amounts of grip ( plus a super smooth surface) however they also tend to tear and wear tyres faster than normal until they have more rubber laid down. Phillip Island is already one of the hardest tracks on tyres, so we have no doubt that some riders will experience excesses wear and tear.
We will be at the Island next weekend ( Feb 2nd- 4th 2024) testing over the 3 days at the Hartwell race meet with Tim Large on the SBK and Luke Sanders in Supersport
After this test we will be posting a new article to our Race School with technical details on how to handle this new surface.
We had so much great feedback and interest in an article we created 4 years ago and we think it will really help. Check it out below.
