The 2015 MotoGP Season is in full swing and the championship heads to Australia for the Pramac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, hosted at the picturesque but extremely demanding Phillip Island circuit.

2015 Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island Preview
The Australian MotoGP is the sixteen round of the 2015 MotoGP Championship. The race has been held at Phillip Island on a continual basis since 1997, with current World Championship leader Valentino Rossi winning here six times, the most of any active rider on the circuit. Valentino Rossi is also the defending Phillip Island winner, and will be looking to go back-to-back on his path to an eighth world title.
Jorge Lorenzo, who’s currently eighteen points behind Rossi and second in the standings, will be anxious to reclaim the Phillip Island title he relinquished last year. While Queensland native Jack Miller, who was elevated this year from Moto3, will be counting on local support as he goes for his best showing of the season.
So don’t miss a minute of this exciting MotoGP action as there’s no telling who will provide the most spectacular footage, or which riders will greet the podium when the races settle on the weekend.
