Aussie teen Miller set for MotoGP
17 Sep 2014 18:06
Australian teenager Jack Miller will make the big step up from Moto3 to ride in MotoGP next season, the LCR Honda team run by former racer Lucio Cecchinello said today.
-
The 19-year-old follows in the tracks of retired compatriot Casey Stoner, who made his MotoGP debut in 2006 with the same non-works Honda team before going on to win two titles in the top category with Ducati and Repsol Honda.
-
The Queenslander will be partnered by Britain's Cal Crutchlow, who currently races for the main Ducati team, with Honda providing a factory specification bike.
-
"It's a dream come true. I think that every rider would like to race at the highest level in the World Championship with a Honda," said Miller in a team statement.
-
"It is certainly a big jump from Moto3 to MotoGP, but I am convinced that we are ready and that, step-by-step, learning every day, we can do a great job."
-
Miller is leading Spaniard Alex Marquez, younger brother of Honda's dominant MotoGP world champion Marc, in the Moto3 championship - the smallest category - with five rounds remaining and has been hailed as a man to watch.
