Miller: “The layout should suit the style of my bike”

Miller: “The layout should suit the style of my bike”

The weight of a nation rests on Jack Miller’s shoulders at his home round, but he’s ready to take it in his stride.

Australia has a proud history in the World Championship; riders such as Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan and Casey Stoner have wowed crowds around the world. Phillip Island has seen all three of these great champions produce some of their best rides and now it’s the turn of Australia’s next great championship hope: Jack Miller. 2014 witnessed an incredible Moto3™ race where a late charge saw Miller steal an incredible home victory, while the overall race win in the MotoGP™ class may be out of the question, the boy from Townsville is out to win the Open class.

No doubt 2015 has been a difficult season, Japan encapsulated the LCR Honda rider’s reason in a single race: great speed but inexperience and over aggression resulted in a crash. If Miller can keep calm and upright, the Open class victory is more than achievable, as the fast and flowing Phillip Island circuit should suit his Honda. In Argentina at the beginning  of the year Miller claimed the Open class victory, both tracks sharing a mix of long sweeping corners and tighter hairpins. It was also announced ahead of the grand prix that Miller will ride for the Marc VDS squad in 2016.

Jack Miller: “I’m really looking forward to the weekend, last year we had a big result here so it really is one of my favourite tracks. So far the weather has been pretty good, but we will have to see how it is tomorrow when we have the free practice sessions. Without a doubt I am really looking forward to riding the MotoGP bike around here, the layout should suit the style of my bike with only a couple of hairpins and lots of corners which are in third, fourth and fifth gears.”
