Jack Miller is an Australian professional motorcycle driver currently participating in the MotoGP championship.
125cc / Moto3 Class
The Australian participated in a couple of races in the 2011 125cc championship before his debut Moto3 season with Caretta Technology. Miller’s 2012 season can be summarised as a warm-up season as the Australian only managed to score 17 points, ultimately finishing the championship in the 23rd place. His consistency improved in the following season and finished the season in the seventh place, thanks to regular top-10 finishes in that season. These consistent performances in the 2013 season earned him a place in the Red Bull KTM Ajo team.
Riding the KTM, Miller won the first two races of the season and quickly established himself as one of the favourites for the riders’ championship. His six wins that season was just not enough as he finished the riders’ championship in the second place, only two points behind Alex Marquez.
Rather than moving to the Moto2 class, the Australian took a big step and started his MotoGP journey in 2015, the year succeeding his brilliant second place in the Moto3 Championship. His first season with the LCR Honda team was a disappointment as the Australian could not finish higher than the nineteenth place in the championship.
However, the very next year, Jack Miller stunned everyone by taking a brilliant victory at the 2016 Dutch Grand Prix. With that win, he became the first Moto3 alumnus to win a race in the premier class. That was the only bright spark in what turned out to be another disappointing season. Miller showed tonnes of improvement in the 2017 season and stood eleventh in the riders’ championship.
Jack Miller is currently riding a Ducati machine for the Alma Pramac Racing and has secured 61 points so far (British Grand Prix).
