Ducati MotoGP star Jack Miller will return home after this week's Jerez Test and compete in the final round of the Australian Superbike championship at The Bend, on December 3-4.

Miller's surprise Superbike debut comes after he was denied the chance to race in front of his home fans at Phillip Island for the past two seasons, due to Covid.

On board a 2021 Ducati Panigale V4 R, Miller will line-up alongside fellow Australian Ducati riders Oli Bayliss, Mike Jones and Wayne Maxwell for the two ASBK races.

“I am really excited to be able to have this opportunity and race the final round of Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK)," Miller said. "I would love to say a massive thank you to the guys at Ducati for allowing me this opportunity amidst our busy testing schedule.

"To go and race in front of the Australian fans is a massive privilege and honour. Thank you the team at ASBK and Motorcycling Australia for their support at such short notice.

"I am also thankful to Ben Henry from DesmoSport Ducati for his help in the organisation. As you can imagine it has not been easy to try and organise everything from the other side of the world at such short notice, having Ben and Matty Macalpine there to help me organise most things, has been very easy.

"I am very excited to be able to race in front of the Australian fans at least one time this year, it is going to be fantastic. I look forward to seeing everyone there!”

Motorcycling Australia CEO, Peter Doyle added: "Having Australian MotoGP sensation Jack Miller compete in the ASBK is further testament to the tough and highly competitive nature of our ASBK Championship which is one of the best national superbike championships in the world.

"Australian race fans have been starved of on track MotoGP action here for two years due to COVID, but to now have their Aussie hero in Jack Miller come home and race ASBK, we are sure fans will flock to the ASBK Grand Finale at The Bend in South Australia."

Miller finished fourth in this year's MotoGP world championship, which concluded at Valencia on Sunday, scoring two wins in his debut season at the Factory Ducati team.

The Jerez Test takes place on Thursday and Friday.
