Going towards the end of the season, MotoGP 22 heads to its furthest-flung destination. The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is hosted by the amazing Phillip Island Circuit.

Phillip Island hosts Round 19 on the MotoGP 22 calendar and has done so every year since 1997. This is a very challenging circuit to race around, thanks to its lack of run-off areas.

You can enjoy all of the thrills and spills we see in real in the official MotoGP 22 video game. Milestone have made another great MotoGP game and 22 has been a breath of fresh air for fans of the fastest two-wheeled racing in the world. Here's our setup guide for Australia in MotoGP 22.

Tyres

Tyre wear is the easiest aspect to racing around Phillip Island. There aren't too many big traction zones here and despite a few fast corners, tyre wear isn't high here.

You can use a set of mediums on the front and rear of the bike and take them to the end.

Suspension

The front suspension has to be on the low side on the whole to aid stability. However, the swingarm extension needs to be the opposite, all the way up at 7 in the pursuit of responsive steering.

The pre-load and swingarm compression should be down at 2. The oil quantity and spring hardness need to be slightly higher at 4 each.

The rear suspension should be a wider mix of values but largely mirror the front. The exception is the pre-load value, which should be up at 7 and the spring hardness, all the way down at 1.

Vehicle geometry

The Vehicle Geometry should be on the low side to help responsiveness. The Steering Head Inclination has to be around 1, as should the trail.

The steering plate position (3) and rear swingarm length (3) should be slightly different to the previous settings.

Transmission

The gears in Australia are high for the most part to help overall top speed. The lower gears should be low though, to help acceleration. This will increase more as the gears go up.

The final ratio, though should be at 4, with the slipper clutch set to 3.

Brake System

There are some big braking zones around Australia and because they're not too spread out, so the full power brakes are required here. So, the 355 mm on the front and the 220 mm on the rear are what we've found to be ideal here.

ECU

You'll need to turn all of the electronic aids up around Phillip Island. The Traction control and engine braking need to be 4. The anti-wheelie aid can be down at 3 as well, despite the sharp inclines and declines found here.

Power mapping is best at 3 for a flying lap, but you'll need to turn this around during some points in the race. This is to save fuel and the engine. All of these can be adjusted out on track using the HUD in the bottom-right of the screen.
