Phillip Island

Spring Run to Phillip Island - Day Run or Overnight

Saturday 17th September 2022

  • Social Run through West Gippsland
  • Parade Laps on the Phillip Island circuit 
  • Optional Saturday night dinner & accommodation

The Saturday social run will pass through the amazing traffic free, suitably surfaced and scenic back roads of West Gippsland concluding with conga line parade laps of the Phillip Island circuit (limited to 60 cars). 

Lunch will be available to your own account at the circuit.  There will be time to meet, mingle and watch our intrepid competitors battling it out with interstate Porsche Club members during the afternoon.

Wind your way through the diverse landscapes of West Gippsland on this unique scenic Saturday morning run.

From our starting point in Caldermeade enjoy the exhilaration of transversing this labyrinth of interconnecting roads surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of this hinterland region.  We flash past Archies Creek, Poowong, Ryanston plus many more equally least-encountered hamlets, travelling many of the backroads crisscrossing this scenic undulating landscape whilst (occasionally) taking in the views.

Upon arrival at the track event, we will be invited onto a parade lap of the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit.

Choose to return home of your own accord on Saturday afternoon or join the excitement with a unique celebration dinner (smart casual) in the dining area above the pits where we expect around 120 participants.  A separate event booking will be required for the dinner (coming soon).

For those staying overnight your can make your own way home Sunday morning or join our Sunday drive which will cover more wonderful roads through Kongwak (optional stop at a fantastic market), Loch and onto Longwarry.  You will be back in Melbourne by early afternoon.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

Phillip Island Dinner – separate event entry will be required (coming soon)

On the Saturday evening the Club will be holding a dinner in the function room above the pit garages at the track, together with guest speaker.

As we will be hosting members from Porsche Clubs NSW, Qld and SA, as well as our own members, we believe this is an ideal opportunity to mingle, eat and drink with our colleagues in a relaxed environment at Victoria’s premier Motor Racing circuit.

Further details including costs will be advised shortly. Please indicate on your entry your interest in attending the dinner via the run booking form.
