Jack Miller and CAT brand are still together on the MotoGP circuits. Let’s find out what a jobsite and a racetrack have in common.

Jack Miller has been around Cat equipment and motorcycles since he was about three years old. He represented the brand on the global stage while racing with the  Ducati Team at the 2021 MotoGP World Championship. 

This partnership showcased the Cat brand through more than 20 internationally televised races to an estimated audience of 400 million. It was a unique way for the Cat brand to connect with MotoGP enthusiasts and the motorsports community, as well as Cat owners and operators throughout the world. 

Jack grew up on a farm in Townsville, Australia, where he first started riding motorcycles. “I immediately fell in lovewith motor racing and competed ondirt tracks until I was about 14 beforedeciding to give road racing a trywith Moto3 in 2009. After that I wentstraight to MotoGP in 2015. I’m proudto be the only person to do that.” 

Jack is just as passionate about Cat machines as he is about motorcycle racing. “I’ve been a Cat fan mywhole life. I remember being at mygrandfather’s property in New Zealand,where he had an old D3 that must havebeen from the 1940s. I would sit next tohim all day thinking how cool it would beto drive something like that one day.” 

In January 2021, that day finally came. His family took delivery of a new Cat D3 dozer from Cat dealer Hastings Deering. Unfortunately, Jack was unable to be there due to racing commitments. “Hastings Deering wasabsolutely fantastic,” said Jack. “Ireceived a lot of updates and photos ofthe machine being built right throughto when it was delivered and evenwhen they handed over the keys at myhouse. They really kept me informed.” The D3 will be put to good use on the farm for a variety of tasks and jobs.
