Located at the apex of the circuit’s steep descent out of Turn 9, Lukey Heights Grandstand provides cross-circuit views all the way from the Southern Loop through arguably the track’s most challenging section of racing.
Turn 9 itself is one of Phillip Island’s most exciting corners with many a rider coming a cropper on this demanding section of the track. Testing the riders’ courage to its limits Lukey’s long left-hander leads to a blind crest, followed by a tricky downhill run and a challenging hairpin before the riders lean into Turn 11 – regularly an overtaking hotspot – that leads onto the crucial final kilometre before the start/finish line.
A true rider-favourite, Lukey Heights requires meticulous racing and perfectly balanced bikes. And, with track amenities and a dedicated Superscreen conveniently located, there’s nowhere better than Lukey Heights Grandstand for fans to enjoy the view of this fast-flowing and highly technical segment of the circuit.
