Jack Miller has confirmed he will compete in the final round of the Australian Superbike Championship at The Bend Motorsport Park
The final round will be held at The Bend Motorsport Park from the 3rd – 5th December, where Miller will compete on board the 2021 Ducati Paniagle V4 R
Now the final round of the MotoGP Championship has taken place in Valencia, Miller will travel to South Australia in order to compete after managing to fit a visit home in-between his testing duties with Ducati.
With two Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix cancelled over recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, racing fans will finally be able to see and cheer the Australian hero on home soil.
Competing on board the 2021 Ducati Panigale V4 R, Jack Miller will line up aside fellow Australian Ducati Riders Oli Bayliss, Mike Jones and Wayne Maxwell across the two races over the course of the event.
Jack confimed his participation in a statement “I am really excited to be able to have this opportunity and race the final round of Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK). I would love to say a massive thank you to the guys at Ducati for allowing me this opportunity amidst our busy testing schedule.
To go and race in front of the Australian fans is a massive privilage and honour. Thank you the team at ASBK and Motorcycling Australia for their support at such short notice. I am also thankful to Ben Henry from DesmoSport Ducati for his help in the organisation. As you can imagine it has not been easy to try and organise everthing from the other side of the world at such short notice, having Ben and Matty Macalpine there to help me organise most things, has been very easy.
I am very excited to be able to race in front of the Australian fans at least one time this year, it is going to be fanatastic. I look forward to seeing everyone there!”
The final round will be open to spectators and with travel restrictions set to ease for South Australia over coming weeks, this event will be a must see for Aussie motorcycle racing fans. Unfortunately, with the borders still closed between NZ and Australia, the chances of any Kiwi fans getting over are remote.
