MotoGP star Jack Miller will get to race before home fans for the first time in two years when he contests the final round of the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) next month.

Miller completed his MotoGP season at Valencia last weekend, finishing fourth on the rider standings for his Ducati team and has confirmed he will be in South Australia to race a Ducati Superbike at The Bend Motorsport Park from December 3-5.

"I would love to say a massive thank you to the guys at Ducati for allowing me this opportunity amidst our busy testing schedule," said Miller in an ASBK statement.

"To go and race in front of the Australian fans is a massive privilege and honour."

Both the 2020 and 2021 Australian rounds of the MotoGP championship were cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.

Miller will line up alongside fellow Australian Ducati Riders Oli Bayliss, Mike Jones and Wayne Maxwell across the two races of the Superbike event.

Organisers say the final round will be open to spectators with travel restrictions set to ease for South Australia over coming weeks.

"The ASBK grand finale will operate under a COVIDSafe Plan in accordance with SA Government regulations, and all interstate travellers, volunteers and race fans will be required to be double vaccinated for entry into South Australia," ASBK said.
