Aussies on the Grid, Jack Miller & Remy Gardner

Tuesday, 6 September 2022

For years, Jack Miller has been the only Australian on the grid.

After a three-year hiatus, MotoGP™ returns to Phillip Island this October, bringing with it two Australian riders in the premier MotoGP™ class, something Australian fans have not seen for more than a decade.

Jack Miller, a multiple-time race winner and one of MotoGP™’s most likable characters, heads to his home Grand Prix and says he’s more than happy to share the home-town support.

“It’s amazing to have two Aussies back here on the grid”.

“As long as you can remember, there’s usually two decent Aussies in there with Chris and Casey back in the day and back to the days of Daz and Mick”.

“I mean it’s unreal to see that happening again”.

The QLD native currently sits sixth in the Rider’s Standings having finished on the podium in three of his previous four starts, before crashing out in San Marino after starting on Pole.

Miller will be joined on the grid at Phillip Island by Remy Gardner, son of the legendary Wayne Gardner and Australia’s only Motorcycle World Champion of the past decade after triumphantly taking the Moto2™ crown in 2021.

It was at Phillip Island in the 2015 Moto3™ Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix when a fresh-faced Gardner would score his first points finish of his first full world championship season. Now in 2022, Gardner will make his first start on home soil in the premier class, looking to add to the legacy of the Gardner name at one of the sport’s most revered circuits.

With Gardner’s future up in the air after the recent shock announcement that Tech3 KTM (GASGAS) would not be re-signing the 24-year-old, Remy’s Australian counterpart has nothing but praise for the up-and-coming Remy Gardner.

“I think he’s one of the most deserving guys on the grid”.

“He’s done the hard yards that’s for certain, but the cool thin with Remy is the never say die attitude”.

Joel Kelso (Moto3™) will make it a trio of Australian riders in action this October when the 19-year-old will make his Phillip Island debut for CIP Green Power.
