MOTOGP >>> nEWs JACKINTWOSIN'15–OR MOTOGP? Jack Miller has become the subject of much speculation and the Australian could be in Moto2 next year – or even, in MotoGP! Miller, who has won three Moto3 races this season, has been reported as going to the Marc VDs Moto2 team in 2015 and ‘16, probably as a replacement for MotoGP-bound Titi Rabat. But there are also rumours that the teenager could step up to MotoGP on one of Honda’s satellite Open entries. “Yeah, why not?” Miller told AAP. “If the big paycheck came and a nice bike was there then I can’t see why not. “I don’t think it will be happening - but, you know, stranger things have happened before.” should that happen, he would be the first man to make the step without going through Moto2, since the smaller class was introduced in 2012. In the meantime, there is a title to be won, and the Ajo KTM team are taking steps to make their man more competitive. Miller is larger of stature that most of his rivals so his bike will have a slightly bigger fairing in coming races, to allow him to tuck in more effectively on the straights. REDDING BETWEEN THE LINES scott Redding has found himself under criticism after comments he made about the Isle of Man TT. The Yamaha ace cancelled an appearance at the famed event after the deaths of two riders during TT week. Three-time British supersport Champion Karl Harris was killed during the superstock event, a day after veteran Bob Price was killed in the first supersport event. Redding, whose early career was supported by Price, said on Twitter: “This is not racing anymore. It’s like a death race. Lost too many friends. “All the riders that finish are relieved to finish in one piece and see their loved ones. “The bikes are far too advanced for road racing nowadays. Would you drive your car at 132mph through a village?” Redding later issued a statement; “I was shocked when I heard the news that Bob had been killed at the TT,” he said. “He was a close family friend and one of the few people outside of my immediate family who supported me when I started out racing. I will miss him, as will many others in our racing family. “Bob died doing something that he loved. I know we hear this all the time when tragedy strikes, but in Bob’s case it was definitely true. He was no spring chicken, but a seasoned roads campaigner who knew the risks, like all the riders do, but it’s what he wanted to do. I respect that, as I respect everyone who takes on the challenge of the TT, but it doesn’t make his passing any easier to deal with. “Then we heard the tragic news that Karl Harris had also lost his life. Karl and Bob are both guys that I know and their deaths have hit me harder than I expected. Honestly, I’m devastated. “And that’s why I won’t be at the TT on Friday, not because I have anything against the Isle of Man TT, but because I prefer to mourn Bob in the places where I knew him best, not the place where he was taken from us. “I wish all the competitors on the Island safe racing.” 16 GPWEEK.com // 16 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
