Jack Miller Facts

  1. He started competitive racing from a very early age and became the ‘Australian Dirt Bike Champion’ in the 65cc category in 2003 at the age of just 8.
  2. Within a period of 3 years, from 2005 to 2007, he won 5 more Australian championships and numerous other titles in dirt bike racing and motocross events at the state and local levels. Soon after, he moved to Europe to compete at a more professional level.
  3. His first season at the Moto3 World Championship, 2012, was marred by a series of retirements and disqualifications, which along with a bike that was not very competitive, meant that he ended the season at a disappointing 23rd position with just 17 points to his name. His best race that season was a 4th place finish at the German Grand Prix.
  4. Jack’s subsequent Moto3 season, in 2013, was a marked improvement and even though he did not end up on the podium in any of the races, he finished the season in a creditable 7th place.
  5. Jack changed his team for the 2014 Moto3 season and switched from Honda to a factory-backed KTM motorcycle. The change worked wonders for him as the season brought him his fastest lap, first pole position, first podium finish, and a first victory at the Grand Prix level. He won 6 races that season and finished as runner-up to Álex Márquez, missing the title by just 2 points.
  6. In a rare occurrence, he was promoted straight to the MotoGP tier in 2015, without having to race in the Moto2 championship, which is the route that most racers at the MotoGP level undertake in their careers.
  7. His first win at the MotoGP level came in a rain-affected race in June 2016 at the TT Circuit Assen. He overtook race leader Marc Màrquez on lap 4 of a 12-lap shootout and held the position for the remainder of the race. As of January 2020, it remained his only win in his 5 seasons of MotoGP and was his only podium finish in his first 4 seasons (2015-2018) before he clinched the 3rd place in 5 of the races in the 2019 season.
  8. Jack’s 2016 TT Circuit Assen victory made him the first Australian to win a MotoGP race after Casey Stoner’s win in 2012. It was also the first time that a racer from a satellite team (non-factory and ill-equipped teams) had won a MotoGP race after Toni Elias had won in Portugal in 2006. Before the start of the race, he was given 750-1 odds of winning the race, which made Jack’s win the biggest upset in MotoGP history.
