Watch the livestream on SBS On Demand for all the Superbikes action from qualifying from 1100 - 1815 AEDT on Saturday, with the racing action setting the track alight on Sunday from 1300 - 1600 AEDT on SBS and SBS On Demand.

The final round takes place at The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia, and will be the first time Miller has competed on home soil since finishing on the podium in the Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island back in 2019.

Miller has been unable to race in Australia with the past two Australian Grand Prix being cancelled due to COVID-related restrictions and will race against the best of Australian talent in the Australian Superbike Championships for Ducati.

“I am really excited to be able to have this opportunity and race the final round of Australian Superbike Championship,” 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.”

Miller has been bullish during the offseason about the 2022 MotoGP season and his team’s chances, but took a rare chance to come back to compete in Australia.

“As you can imagine it has not been easy to try and organise everthing from the other side of the world at such short notice,” said Miller, “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!”
