Australia’s only winning representative in the MotoGP paddock this season, Jack Miller, took a well-deserved eighth-place finish last time out at a very wet Malaysian Grand Prix, becomign the highest placed Honda rider in the process.

This was the young racer’s third top-ten finish since he won his first MotoGP race at Assen back in June.

Coming into the season finale at the Valencia circuit in Spain, Jack returns as a previous winner after tasting victory back in 2014 when he won the Moto3 event and he is thrilled to be back in action here this weekend.

“It’s been good to get back to my base in Andorra after a pretty hectic overseas trip and have some time to get back out on the bicycle again, which I’ve missed,” he said.

“I can take a lot of positives from the last two races in Australia and Malaysia and I’m looking forward to this weekend in Valencia, where I’m keen to finish the season on a high note before getting back to testing on Tuesday ready for the 2017 season.”
