Jack Miller will race in this weekend’s Michelin Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, the Marc VDS team has confirmed.

Miller broke his right tibia in a training accident and missed last weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix.

His team has since tweeted on the eve of race weekend, “Good news! Jack Miller passed fit to ride at the Australian GP”.

The Queenslander has told Speedcafe.com that he expects to be in the running for another top 10 finish in his home race.

“Last year we were fighting for seventh position and I think we can go even better than that,” said Miller.

“Phillip Island is a mix of everything. It is a really flowing track and it suits our bike and there is not too many first gear accelerations and big straights.

“We will put our head down go to work and see what we can come away with.”

On-track proceedings at Phillip Island start tomorrow with two practice sessions for each class.
